Monday 1 December 2014


Good morning and happy Monday! Can you believe it is December already? We spent the weekend doing some Christmas shopping (almost done!!!) and decorating the house. I feel very prepared and organized for Christmas this year, which is a great step in avoiding a mid December panic attack.... always a good thing, wouldn't you say?

Christmas preparations aside, I also spent time on the weekend working on my layout for the latest sketch challenge at The Memory Nest.

Here is the sketch, which I absolutely love:

And here is my layout:
Yes, I did a layout using a picture of me alone.....a very rare occurrence, but a nice addition to my album. I can not remember the last time I did a "me" layout, so it was a lot of fun to create this page.
All the patterned paper is from the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook line. The other embellishments are just random bits from my stash, which I had a great time rummaging through last week, especially when I found this treasure.

As always, you can create your own page based on this sketch and link up over at The Memory Nest. Gotta love all this creative sharing....I love blogs for that.

Have a great day. If all goes well, I should have another layout to show you later this week.
