December 11th Sketch

Hey ladies! Only 14 sleeps 'til Christmas, and only 21 'til the year is over. Time sure is flying by! Hope you are managing to keep your sanity by fitting in as much scrapping as you can. :) Here is Krissy's fabulous sketch for this week - a great two photo layout.

First up we have Ilona's layout with her super cute robot additions to this layout about her son at the playground.

Next up is Kerry's boyish layout - also showing her son at the park:

And just by coincidence, I have also scrapped photos of my son at the park. LOL! We must have all been thinking along the same lines when we sat down to create with this sketch. At least my theme was a little different than playing at the park. :)

That's all from us this week. Check back for Krissy's teams creations next week and then I will be back with a sketch on Christmas Day (here in Aus) for everyone to enjoy - well I'm sure it will be enjoyed after Christmas. :) Happy scrapping!

November 27 Sketch

Wow - another week has passed and we are another week closer to Christmas and the end of the year. I hope everyone is getting lots of scrapping done before the silly season hits. :) This week we have another fab sketch from Krissy and some wonderful inspiration from the girls on my team. :) The sketch is made using Jessica Sprague goodies.

First up we have Kerry's gorgeous take on the sketch. I just love Kerry's ability to match everything together and such a sweet photo!

Next up is Ilona's Say Cheese layout - a very cute layout featuring her munchkins. :)

And lastly, a simple one from me celebrating the relationship between my son and our dog, who unfortunately just can't keep up with him (ds is 4 and Buddy is 15). Using the gorgeous Earth Love papers from CIS.

On a very sad note, Lana is closing the CIS store, so be sure and check out the bargains to be had. She is preparing to spend more time on her private life. The good news is that the sketch blog will remain for your inspirational pleasure. :)

Don't forget to upload any layouts from November to the CIS gallery with the code novsketch to be in the running for this month's prize. :)

The November Sketch #3 is perfect not only for layouts, but for altering boxes, too, and I made this box for my DH (attached image). The character on the box is a Norwegian cartoon character called Pondus, a beer drinking soccer fan, not unlike my hubby. Pondus is made by paper piecing."

Awesome work Hilde :)

October 23rd Sketch

Hi again everyone! So nice to see you here for your weekly dose of inspiration. :)

Here is Krissy's fabulous sketch for this week - a double, or is it? :)

Kerry took on the challenge of creating a double layout and has done a fantastic job, I'm sure you'll agree? I love the textural elements she has brought to the layout, entitled 'Footy'.

Next up Ilona tackled the sketch as a 6" x 12" layout, with fabulous results - as shown in her Sunshine Girl layout, where not every space is a photo. Ilona created two layouts so if you check out the gallery at CIS, she may well share her second LO there for more inspiration. :)

And lastly, here is my layout for this week - I adapted the sketch to create a 12"x12" layout using some pics of my baby girl taken at the weekend. It was amazing for the whole family and ds to see. :) I've used the gorgeous Earth Love papers from CIS - just love the fall tones of this range!

Take care, and happy scrapping (remember to use the code octsketch to upload your layouts to the gallery and be in the running for this months sketch comp prize).
