oh, how I love this girl :)

This is one of the pictures from what were supposed to be nice Christmas-card photos :) You know, one of these days we might stop trying for that "perfect" shot and just let them be...

Used the VERY versatile sketch from Miss Sandie who is guest at PencilLines this week (thank you, Sandie, for the inspiration!) and this week's Color Challenge at SplitCoast Stampers (Taken with Teal, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze and Whisper White). Both fantastic inspiration for this busy, wonderfully crazy and blessed time!

My Sketch World!

Hey, look who's over at My Sketch World this month! :)

Jen Martakis and I had the pleasure of playing with Lucy's December sketch since she gave her DT the month off for the holidays! Here's the great sketch:

And here's my layout paying homage to funky hair and black eyeliner:

That's the Earthy Summer Power Palette Addition from Creative Memories, embellished with some Basic Grey rub-ons, Prima lollipop flower fun, Love Elsie ribbon, and some ancient Junkitz bling :)

some leaves from my family tree

When we went to North Carolina this summer, we returned with a huge envelope jammed full of old family photos from my mum's side of the family tree. It was so much fun to go through the photos and try to identify our relatives. You can imagine that I was pretty excited when I found out shortly after that Creative Memories had created a vintage themed collection!! I had a great time playing with these new Jewel Heritage Power Palette Kits in 12x12 and 8x8. Both of the kits are totally packed and really easy to design with. I love the muted colors and prints, and isn't it nice to see more than black, brown and ivory for heritage pages?! (To see other creations from the Design Team using the new collection, click here to go to the Project Center.)

I forgot to mention, too, that Sew Somerset magazine requested a page that uses some of this Heritage collection!! It has lots of machine-stitching and hand-sewing, ribbons and buttons, ooh and lots of Prima bling! I can't wait to show that layout (knock on wood I'll be showing it in the magazine! LOL).

Thanks for stopping by and visiting :)
