Mid Week Sketch 13-12

OK, so it's a little past mid week... almost the weekend in fact, lol. You weren't going to actually scrap this on Wednesday night anyway, were you? Hope you think it's worth the wait :-)

And my example, which I love. You might think that I choose my photos and design a sketch for them, but I just do my sketching and then look for photos, so I am working the same way you are. Always a thrill when it works as well as this one. I hope you like it too. Wouldn't it make a nice one for a Mother's Day layout?

Mid Week Sketch 12-12

I have a double for you this week. One of my regular readers recently requested a multi-photo double and I am happy to oblige when I can, so here it is :-)

Photos of my two darlings lolling about during the Christmas holidays. Layout done almost entirely with scraps and things already precut. I love being able to use up some bits that need a home. In fact, I'm trying to do that a lot this year. 

I have designed this layout so that you can also separate the two halves if you don't have enough photos to do a double. You could also use two larger photos on the left hand side, if that's what you have. Mix it up and make it yours. Get creative and have some fun.

Forgotten Bits

Goodness, three forgotten bits for the month and we're almost half way through already... sorry girls.

First, I forgot to make an InLinkz doovalacky for you all for March, but that is now in place on the side bar so you can share away as much as you like  :-)

Then I realised that I haven't drawn February's random draw winner from all the beautiful pages that you shared in February {{ooopsie}} I have written all the numbers on little pieces of paper, folded them and tossed them in a basket (no hats in sight...) and then dug my hand it to pull out: number 11 - Charlotte Brochu. Congratulations Charlotte, send me your address and I'll post off your flower pack :-) And congratulations to everyone else, you have done some absolutely beautiful pages and I just love seeing them all. I really appreciate you using my sketches and sharing your work on your blogs.

And then, there is the little matter of adding March's pretty prize to show you what you might win if you're the lucky one this month. To be in the draw you have to be one of my lovely followers, and make a page from one of the March sketches and link it here. So here it is, hope you like it.

The prize is a pack of paper flowers, leaves and doilies and a cute butterfly, all handmade by me with quality scrapbooking papers and the help of some pretty dies and punches. Don't you just love those little apple blossom type flowers? They're my new ones.  :-)  If you like what you see here, check out my Made It page, where I have lots of packs for sale in a rainbow of colours and in several sizes.

Mid Week Sketch 11-12

Here is a great sketch for a quick page when you don't have very much time. We all have moments when we want need to create but there are other things pressing on us from all directions. Throw this one together in between other commitments or in a one hour slot (that's how long it took me, in amongst phone calls, after school snacks and getting ready for date night with DH). Hope it works for you too.

Please feel free to leave me some feedback or a comment, I love to hear from you and will take requests :-)

Until next week girls, happy scrapping :-)

Mid Week Sketch 10-12

Mid week again - there's nothing like a regular once a week event to make you realise that we are slipping through the year - March already! For me in Australia, that means it's officially Autumn, although it might take a while to actually feel like it in Brisbane. It doesn't matter, every season is good for creativity, and there is always something to inspire the juices to flow, no matter what the weather.

My sketch this week is for 2 landscape orientation photos, or for one large portrait photo. Or maybe 4 smaller ones... I used two that were taken when my son came for Christmas, although as you can see, I didn't opt for Christmassy colours at all :-)

Hope you like my sketch. Come back next week for another one :-)

love Heather x ..always be a little kinder than necessary.
