Sketch #1 - 52 Sketches . . . 52 Weeks

Over at ScrapCity, one of the members of the Creative Team mentioned this 52 Sketches . . . 52 Weeks site. They are going to have a sketch a week all year long. It seems like a great site, and an awesome online community.


This is Sketch #1. Isn't it great?


This is my layout based on Sketch #1. I used a lot of Basic Grey Urban Prairie. I did a lot of detail cutting too. I added some rhinestones to the butterflies and to the Nestabilities scallop circle that I cut. I added some Making Memories Noteworthy felt flowers. The sparkle chipboard letters that I used for the title are by ScrapWorks. The journaling is a Creative Card from Fancy Pants. I just cut it into strips. I love scrapping a summer layout in the winter! The bright colors really make me happy! You can click on the layout to see it larger.

I hope you have a great weekend! We got more snow overnight. Oh joy! (Said in a most sarcastic tone!) Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful page, Carol! I really like the bright, spring-feeling colors. I probably shouldn't mention that we haven't had any snow here yet . . .

What a fabulous sketch. It almost makes me want to have a go myself - only I'm so behind on my DT stuff. Oooops. That's my little task for Monday!!!

I do love your layout though, helps take eveyones mind off the frost and cold weather. Roll on spring that's what I say! Where are those Snowdrops and Daffodils?

Stay warm!
Hugs

Fabulous layout Carol, I love the bright colours too!
Enjoy the snow, well I am sure the girls will if you don't! Just think of that good exercise you get clearing the paths! We love getting snow here but it only ever lasts a few days so it is gone by the time we have tired of it. We don't even have snow on the mountains here yet, my DH and eldest son are desperate for it to go ski-ing!
