2nd Last Sketch for the CIS Team

Hi guys,

Boy am I glad that Krissy got on last week and let the news out - I so didn't want to be the one to share those sad tidings. But as Krissy said, she will be sharing her sketches at her site, so please visit Wicked Princesses for continued inspiration. :)

And on with the show - another fabulous sketch from Krissy -

And first up, Ilona's layout, entitled - 'Oh Boy'. This is oh so cute! :)

Secondly, Kerry's gorgeous inspiration, entitled 'Play Time'. Love the embellishing Kerry does.

(Removed for publication)

Lastly, my layout entitled "Boys Will Be Boys'. Three generations having fun in the pool while we were away at Easter. :)

Thank you for your support of this blog and our work. And a big thank you from me to Lana for getting the team together, Krissy for her amazing sketches each week and Ilona and Kerry for making my job as team leader so easy.

Happy Scrapping everyone and don't forget to check out the last sketch for the CIS team next week. :)

Hi everyone :-)

This post is to let you all know that the last sketch for April will be our last for the CISters stylish sketch blog :-( We have loved providing you all with sketchy inspiration through the sketches and examples each week but the time has come to move on.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lana for letting me be the sketch designer for the blog, Sara,Ali,Kerry,Hilde and Ilona for always providing beautiful work using my sketches :) You girls are fandabbydosey and it has been an honour working with you all :-)

Sara will be back next week with a sketch then I will be doing the final post......

If anyone would like to continue to follow my sketches you can find them at my shop forum Wicked Princesses where I have lots of challenges and prizes up for grabs.

Were has the time gone? Already a quarter of the year over? How did that happen? :)

Here is another great sketch from Krissy - who always amazes me with her originality -
And here is my layout for the week - another baby girl one - entitled Thank Heaven for Little Girls :) As soon as I found out we were having a girl I went shopping and this is the dress I bought to celebrate the news - doesn't she look cute in it? :)
Next up we have a boyish layout by Ilona, entitled Monkey Business - love that dinosaur and the cheeky monkeys!

And lastly a gorgeous layout from Kerry with a vintage feel to it, entitled 'Unique'. Once more I love Kerry's use of embellishments and how she has rotated the sketch. :)

Have a very Happy Easter everyone (for those that celebrate it) and I will see you in two weeks. :)

2nd Sketch for March

Time is flying by, and before we know it Easter will be here and the kids will be on holidays again (here in Aus, at least). :)

Here is another great sketch from Krissy this week -

First up we have Ilona's lovely layout, entitled 'My Bicycle'. A lovely soft girly layout from Ilona, where she has tilted more than just the main photo.

Next is Kerry's rotated layout, entitled 'Explore' = love the colours in this one and the funky page border. Kerry always uses great embies too!

And lastly my layout - a bit more masculine one this week, although still baby orientated, entitled "Dad's Treasures". I converted the circle to a photo to include both our children. :)

Happy scrapping everyone. Until next fortnight....

Friday February 26

Hi ladies!

Can't believe a fortnight has passed already. Where did the time go? For me it was probably spent looking into my baby's eyes and wondering what the future holds.

Here is this week's fab sketch from Krissy - a great two photo sketch that each of us has adapted differently to suit our chosen pics.

First up we have Ilona's lovely layout - entitled 'Dream On' - love the car emby and how it ties into the photos. I also love her chipboard flourish.

Next we have Kerry's gorgeous take on the sketch - entitled 'Poser' - love the embellishments she has used. Kerry has gone with a lovely gem flourish.

Lastly here is my layout, entitled 'Sweet Dreamer'. As always, I have kept it simple. :) I have used Kindy Glitz for my freehand flourish.

I hope you all have found something to inspire you here - until next time, happy scrapping! Sara.

Hi sketch fans!

My sincerest apologies for posting this a day late - my beautiful baby girl was born last Friday and since then I have suffered from migraines (due to lack of sleep, I'm sure) which have limited my computer time. I promise to be more organised from now on.

Here is Krissy's wonderful sketch - a 2 photo design that just falls together.

And here is my first layout showing my two blessings. ' I Adore You' is about the way my son loves his little sister already. :) The Love Bandit range suits the sentiment so well. :)

Next up is Kerry's layout entitled 'Goof Ball' showing a different take on the sketch - I love the elements Kerry always pulls together.

And finally Ilona's layout entitled 'A Pose in the Snow' - gorgeous bright colours for a wintery layout. :)

Krissy will be back with another sketch and examples on Friday. Happy scrapping ladies!
