Project Life week 2

I finished up my project life week 2 last week and have been working on week 3. The hardest part for me is getting through all of the pics that I take...not that we do anything much exciting, but I still take tons of pics! But I am enjoying PL and the 1 page/week is really working out for me!

happy 3 day weekend!!

well...at least for me, it's a 3 day weekend...yay!

I made a LO for the January 8th Pencil Lines sketch challenge today and I got to use my super fun stamp that came with my January Studio Calico kit...that thing is fabulous!

so here is the sketch

Pencil Lines 1.8

and here is my LO containing an almost never seen family shot...had to use it even though the puppy isn't looking at the camera.

Sketchy Thursdays 1.5

Found a little time to play with my newest Studio Calico kit and Sketchy Thursdays! This sketch was right in my comfort zone and this LO came together in about an hour which is unheard of in my world of scrapping!

This feels like the first LO I have completed in forever...with all that December Daily thing going on!

Here is the sketch


and here is my LO


I embossed the background with a fabulous Basic Grey stamp and clear AC zing!

A birthday card Saturday

Made 1 quick card for a co-worker this week using maybe the last little bits of my December 2010 Studio Calico kit...I loved that kit and have used up every single bit of it...except for the exclusive papers that I am hoarding;)...what remains of it now fits into a small jewelry bag!

fabulous birthday card

Working on my Project Life 1st week today and my December Daily too, so maybe I will have something to share with you tomorrow too!
