Mid Week Sketch 48-12

This week's sketch is a bit of a cheat... I did it in the wee small hours last week, in a desperate rush to finish the last page for my wedding album in time for my Silver Wedding Anniversary. So I went with the flow of a very nice piece of paper and made it my own. Then I thought, that would make a great sketch, so here you are, hope you enjoy it.

And here's my page: 

I hope you can forgive this one cheat sketch. Usually everything comes straight from my head.

Mid Week Sketch 47-12

Oh yes, another late one... I have an excuse, really I do... It was my silver wedding anniversary on the weekend and the run up to it was rather hectic, since I was catering and doing the decorations and looking for a dress, etc. All over now though, and the stuff on the desk has suddenly cleared enough for me to see what else needs to be done.

The reason for all the wedding photos I've been doing lately becomes clear to you now, I guess? I have been doing my wedding album in time for my anniversary. I think it's safe to say that I am happy now to start working on ordinary photos, and not vintage ones for a while! Ah to be that young again though, sigh....

Anyway, here is last week's sketch, and it's matching page:

The rub-on title decided to misbehave and not come off smoothly, but in the end I decided I liked the vaguely vintage look of it.

Mid Week Sketch 46-12

No page done for this one yet, but I am itching to get to it so I think it's high on the list of jobs before the week is over. Here is the sketch, hope you like it. (And yes, I know it's another circle. I am in a circley kind of mood apparently.)

And by the way... did you notice how close 46 is to 52? Not many more sketches to do this year.... Can it really only be 6 more and the whole year is done?

And I have finished the page that goes with this sketch, although I flipped mine to suit the flourish better. Flipping, turning and changing things to suit yourself is a good thing. My sketches are all for inspiration, so don't be afraid to fiddle about with them and make them your own.

I haven't done a title on this page. I made it as a double for another page I did for my album, and that one has a large title, so I decided against one for this page.... also, I was doing it at 3am to finish it, and my brain wasn't happy being made to think of one, lol! Next to the other page, it doesn't look like it needs one. Honest. ;-)

Mid Week Sketch 45-12

Well, look at this - I'm on time! lol ;-)

I've had a very busy week, but it's also been very refreshing and relaxing and it was easy to get some scrapping done.

I've been digging through some older photos lately and finding some lovely memories to scrap, although I must say the details are a bit foggy sometimes... other times they are really clear and I am transported back in time. That's one of the beauties of scrapping, isn't it? We can capture those memories once and for all, even if it's only a snippet. Capture the stories of our lives and live those little moments again that make us who we are, as a person or a family or community. It doesn't matter when we do it, as long as we get it done.

I'll have to check the "when" of this photo with my husband when he comes home tonight, but the beginning of the story is told.

Mid Week Sketch 44-12

Here is our last one for this week and now we are all caught up :-) This one is a pretty easy one, with a couple of layers and then stuff from the stash pulled out and finally used.

Use two 4x6 photos, or a nice big 6x8 or even four 3x4 inch photos.

Mid Week Sketch 43-12

Here's is our next catch up sketch, hope you like it :-) If you don't have a 5x7 photo, you could either mat a 4x6 to size, or use two 3.5x5 inch photos together. Use any tallish embellishment at the side to give your layout balance.

And my sample:
