Sketch #93

Hello, hello! Happy Friday to you! We have made it to the first weekend of the new year - and I'm ready for it! I don't know why it always seems like that first week after a break is so long!

We are back today with our first new sketch of the new year. Shawn has created a fun sketch for us to work with and the design team has created some great samples to share with you. Here's the sketch:

Here are the design team creations:

Anne-Marie - this is an old, blurry photo from 2004 - pre-digital days when we didn't know what we were going to get LOL! But I wanted to scrap it anyway because my son loved that stuffed dog that he got when he visited Santa that year.

Such beautiful work from our design team!

I will be picking a winner for our December challenges over the weekend, so stay tuned!

We hope that you have some time to play along with us this month! We would love to see your beautiful creations! I will be offering up a prize this month so be sure to play along!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope that you have enjoyed the holiday season and that you are ready for the new year!

I'm just popping in here really quickly to let you know that we are changing things a bit here on the blog. Our regular sketch reveal posts are on the 1st and the 15th of each month. This year that is going to change to the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month. 

We will still be bringing you two sketches each month and some design team inspiration to go along with each sketch when we can.

We hope you will continue to visit our blog and hopefully you'll have some time to play along with us here in the new year!

I will be back Friday with our 1st sketch of the new year! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Hello, everyone! Happy Friday to you! First thing - I want to apologize for not announcing our November winner yet! This month has just been a blur so far and looks to stay that way until after Christmas. I will get the winner announced later today!

Today we are here to share our final sketch of the year. This sketch is created by Emma and the design team has knocked it out of the park with their examples. Here's the sketch:

Emma has created a beautiful card and layout.

Lisa has created a cute card for her weekly pocket spread for her faith planner.
