Well, only one page done with the July sketches, so Kerri wins, hands down, lol! Kerri I will be sending you this lovely flower package, thanks for sharing your lovely page with me. I'm glad you liked my sketch enough to have a go. Enjoy your flowers when they arrive :-)

Mid Week Sketch 30-12

We're up to week 30 already? This year is zipping past. I'm not even going to think about it. Safer that way, lol.

Anyway, to keep the tempus fugit blues away, here is a cute sketch that utilises those skinny strips you find on the bottom of some brands of paper - you know, the cut off strip. I can't throw them out when they are so pretty. I've mixed some with other thin strips in my layout, but you can also use ribbons if you want. It's a good layout for that too.

Mid Week Sketch 29-12

Well, here is our last catch up sketch - next Wednesday we are back on track. I hope you like this one, it's a bit different for me being symmetrical... although you will see from my sample page that I couldn't stick to it too much, making a few things a bit squint and distressing to take away from the straight lines.

and here's that sample page, with my fur babies snoozing their lives away.

Mid Week Sketch 28-12

As you know if you've been here for a while, I am a couple of weeks late with my mid week sketches... I'd blame someone else if I could think of who it could be, LOL.. The truth is rather bland... just life getting in the way as it sometimes does.

Anyway, it's catch up time this week, and I have another sketch for you today to help in that process.

This one would work well for a romantic page, or a page of love anyway, but I did my sample of my Christmas tree and the decorations. The photos are a little dark because they were taken at night when the fairy lights were lit. I like them though, they remind me of what I like about the tree. It might not be perfect, but I do love my Christmas tree and all the lovely handmade decorations on it. My little dots are liquid pearls. I just recently acquired my first bottle of this stuff and I can't believe it took me so long!

A Little Smackeral of Something Pretty

I know it's half way through the month, and I am behind with sketches this month anyway, but oh well, I have a little prettiness to share - and all you have to do to maybe possess this pinkness is to:

1. Do a page with a July sketch and link it through the Inlinkz tool on the side bar

2. Leave me a comment on any post.

3. Become a follower if you aren't already

and.... and you will go in the draw to win it. It might be you! Hope so :-)

And here is the pretty pinkness I mentioned.

There are two doilies, some leaves, a butterfly and a pearl stick pin, and a bunch of my handmade flowers in pink and ivory. Let's see those pages now, and good luck.

Mid Week Sketch 27-12

I have a double for you this week. You could adapt to a single if that's all you're interested in, just use one side or the other and fiddle to make it balanced. But for those of you who crave doubles, it's your lucky week :-)

I've designed this for three 4-6 inch landscape orientation photos and I've made my sample with some Christmas photos - bit late in the year maybe, but at least they are before this year's ones appear!

I like this dull red and aqua combination, it makes a nice change to traditional red and green for Christmas. Softer, more relaxed.

Mid Week Sketch 26-12

Sorry girls, I've been having a hard time getting to anything scrappy lately. I could blame all sorts of things I guess, but the buck stops here, so you'll just have to forgive me for being a bit slack and enjoy the sketches in the catch up. Sometimes life just gets in the way of our creative pursuits, for whatever reason. I know you know what I mean.

Here is Sketch 26, hope you like it.

The next catch up will be posted tomorrow. :-)
