Mid Week Sketch 05-13

Well, it's been quite a week since I was last here. Wild weather in Queensland, flooding and wild winds, damage all over the place, services affected, people killed, our wonderful rescue teams out and about in it all doing their stuff and keeping us safe. And to top it off, my husband was taken ill and had to be whisked off to hospital by ambulance from the side of the road... all very dramatic and worrisome, but he is well again now and safe. He can't get into work yet because there is still no power there, but at least school has gone back so that is one bored person out of the house and doing something constructive.

No scrapping here unfortunately, but look out this weekend! I have booked myself some ME time, come hell or high water, and I plan on sticking to it. I haven't scrapped all year, and I'm getting twitchy, lol! I have, however, still managed to do this week's sketch for you. Maybe I will even get to it myself soon ;-) It's a great one for boys, but with a different set of embellishments you could make it anything you want. Hope you like the little bit of stitching.

And here is the 6 inch kids version - I hope the little people out there are enjoying their own sketches and that they are just right for you. Please feel free to leave me some feedback on them and let me know if they are working for you.

Mid Week Sketch 04-13

Can you believe we are up to week four already this year? Well, four Wednesdays anyway. Don't anyone blink! I have only managed two scrappy things this year, and it wasn't pages, but a bunting flag decoration for my scrap room and an off the page project using a Kaiser recipe book that I was given for Christmas by a scrappy friend. I decorated it up to keep my sketches in - still recipes really, just different ones :-)

Speaking of sketches, this week's one is a cheery one, full of fun and movement. Hope you like it.

And the kids 6 inch version is just as much fun:

I am loving seeing everyone's January work so far, thanks for having a go girls, I love seeing what you do with my sketches, it never fails to thrill me :-) Thanks also for the comments, it means a lot to me when people take the time to leave me some feedback, it's much appreciated.

Mid Week Sketch 03-13

And now for our second catch up sketch. This one is for just one landscape orientation photo - a nice page for a photo of two people, maybe... I like the possibilities for using some nice printed papers with this one with the squares and layers. Hope you like it too - and of course, the 6 inch kids page is below too.

Mid Week Sketch 02-13

Well, the best laid plans of mice and men go oft awry, and crafty girls are no exception to the rule... I have had a couple of weeks unexpectedly away from internet access, being there for family. My mother had a cataract operation and my son was not well, and eeek! No internet where I was! But I survived, lol, and so did they both, with my amateur nursing. For my son, it's not over yet, but I think he's taken the first few tentative steps towards good health again. Fingers crossed.

I was even ahead of the game before I went away, with a couple of week's sketches ready to go. So much for feeling smug, LOL! Funny. Anyway, I am going to post the two sketches we have missed out on today, and then this week's one when it's due, on Wednesday. I hope they all appeal to you and fit with your photos.

Sketch 2 for this year is a great one for boys, or holiday pics, or you can go wild and adapt it for any purpose - it's your page, let your imagination have some fun. As promised, there's also a 6 inch version of the sketch for our young people to have a go at.

Add your pages to the Link gallery on the side and go in the draw to win a little prize - details coming soon.

Raid that stash and see what you can use up this year.  :-)

Kids Sketches

It has been suggested to me that I make a kids version of my sketches, for all our young scrappers. I like that idea, so I decided to do it :-) I will make the kids sketches 6 x 6 inches, and they will be a simplified version of the original. I hope the little people you know enjoy them. Here is the first one:

Mid Week Sketch 01-13

Happy New Year to you, I hope that this year brings you many good things, such as good health, happy times, good friendships and loves, peace, pleasure and plenty. And I wish you lots of creative time, energy and passion, so that you can spend happy hours doing what you love most.

My year has started well, if a little too warm for my liking, but then it is summer I suppose, lol. There are compensations... Scrapping in front of the fan, radio on in the background, a nice glass of berry cordial beside me, looking out the window at the endless blue sky. It's often the smallest things that make a happy life.

I have been spending some time tidying up my sketch program and making some new bits to include. Still can't get a good ricrac, but I am working on it. I had fun making some new flowers to use, and a few other cute bits too... you will see them appear in the next few weeks. It's ridiculous how satisfying it is, lol. Or is that just my inner geek rising?

Anyway, here is the first sketch for the year. I hope you like it and it suits some photos you have waiting to be used. There is a nice big background for you to have fun with glimmer mists, stamping or maybe to use one of those lovely background pps with a corner design. I look forward to seeing what you've done with it.

love Heather x ..always be a little kinder than necessary..
