First Layout of 2011

So, yesterday i made my first blog post and today is my first LO of 2011.

I'm keeping with my resolution so far, lol.

Over the Christmas holidays i was able to have some time surfing the net, reading craft blogs in the hope of finding some inspiration to really help kick start my mojo, as 2010 i never really done much in the way of scrapping. i really want to change this this year as memories are way to precious to be forgotten.

whilst spending hours, literally, i came across this sketch site i have never heard of before, but i really liked it. Its called 'Sketchabilities', it's an awesome site with lots of inspiration for the card maker too. It can be found here: http://www.sketchabilities.blogspot.com/ make sure to pop on over.

As it was Christmas i decided to use there latest sketch (sketch 37) and use some photo's from this Christmas, you know what, i still haven't scrapped last years photo's!!!!

So out came all the Christmas stash, boy i seem to have stacks, but not use very much!!!! Working with a sketch really inspired me and i loved how easy it was to use. I adapted mine down to 8.5 x 11, but it still worked.

The sketch:

My LO:

The photo's are of Hannah and Sam on Christmas Eve, being very silly as they were so excited !! Love the silly faces of Sam.

This has really helped me get back into the swing of things and i am know about to start sketch 38, with the most beautiful kit, MME Lost and Found that i have had for a few months.

It's now the weekend, which i am looking forward too, have my monthly crop on Sunday which i can't wait for, might even get my LO finished.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend and get some craft time.

Take care

Loving your Christmas LO. and the sketch adapted to 8x11 so nicely! What about making a christmas minibook to use up all that yummy Christmas stash and last years photos? Thank you for stopping by my blog :) the hearts are from a stampin up punch (it punches all three hearts out), i like the little fat heart the most but have found all three of them really useful lately.
