PageMaps Sketch 12-18

This is a great sketch from PageMaps.

I loved it. So here is my take on it.

What is even better about it is that I used stuff from my stash. No kits. Nothing planned. Just stuff I pulled out of the TONS of stuff I have. Perfect!

So, off topic now... today's gratitude (I missed yesterday. Sorry.)

1. I am grateful for fun family time that is not forced.
2. I am grateful that my hubby's job is not on the chopping block.
3. I am grateful for moments unplanned.

A Layout! Woot Woot!

I made this layout over a period of time. I painted the background paper with the idea of a post about using your favorite sheet of paper out of a kit, even when you didn't have the heart to. But that just didn't happen. I finally got it done 10 minutes before leaving for Disney when we need to distract our youngest as my hubby loaded the car. Anyway...

I keep scrapping B's running. She is just beginning to connect with running. She is so talented but she has been hanging on to the horseback riding, even though she isn't riding. I feel like the more she sees us making a big deal about it, the more it will help her to want to run. Plus, these are really the only photos she will allow me to take of her, so I have to use them. :-)

My favorite sheet of paper in this kit was the Studio Calico "Typo". I know it is really just kind of plain, but I just loved it. It was hard to use it and I never could make myself cut it up. So background! The pain splatters was something new. I like trying things, but I was SO NERVOUS about messing up my paper!
