Plenty of Sketches and Colors



 Three generations is the first layout I am sharing today.  I used papers and 
embellishments from the Hello December and Believe Christmas collections. 
 I was thrilled with the twine circle. I made 3 loops to represent the 3 generations.  
of my mom, my daughter and myself.  The layout was inspired by this month's sketch 
from Stuck?! Sketches.  I am really happy with the outcome of this layout.  





Bringing home the class pet was a lot of fun.  My kids loved having 
the hamster to take care of.  I knew I wanted to create a layout for 
this weekend memory and this color/sketch combo was just right.
Thank you for the inspiration Color Me Scrappy.  I loved both the
colors and the sketch (see below).



    



Scrapping these pictures from my daughter's 9th birthday have
been on my list for a while.  I find lots of sketches that I love, but then
I have to shuffle through my gazillion pictures in order to find ones to create 
the layout.  THE BEST PART: finding just the right photos.   I love how 
the colors in this layout are very similar to the above layout.  


The sketch inspiration is from Sketchabilities #108.  I am 
still experimenting with sprays/inks.  I like the way my inky circles 
came out.  The drips looked good at first but they did not dry right.

Happy Scrapping,

  18. I love your take on all of the sketches. What a great idea using the twine directories to represent each generation that is so creative. Don't you just love the colors for the Color Me Scrappy challenge I think they may be my favorites so far. I love the little clothes pins on your last layout they are too cute.
