First the sketch and then some other stuff! Trying to play a bit more with colours for me and mixing up the patterned paper.... it's always good to step outside my comfort zone! Hand journalling is another big issue for me so this one forces me to do it.

I did manage to get a layout done on Friday night. I had been out of printer ink and couldn't print out any pics at home so once I got that fixed, it helps get me scrapping again. I love being able to print all different sizes at home - definitely more convenient!
We have been having beautiful weather here for a change so we have been packing up picnics and heading to the park - I LOVE SUMMER! At the grocery store, I picked up a magazine that I have only bought once or twice before called Scrapbooking and Beyond and immediately fell in love with this layout

So I googled her name (Robbie Herring) and found her blog with the lovely layout on it! Some of the girls on the forum were wanting a quick challenge so I posted this one and told everyone to scraplift it - I will ask the gals that completed their layout if I can post theirs as well but here is my scraplifted version! (I couldn't get a straight picture of it if my life depended on it so I gave up) Don't forget about the BLOG CANDY that is getting ready to be shipped out!!

  2. I love this sketch! I too have trouble with my handwriting and don't do a lot of hand journaling! I may have to see what I can do with this one!

    Have a Blessed evening!
