Click here to see this week's sketch created by Day and what the rest of the design team created. I have to admit, this is one of my current favorite layouts. I just love how it turned out. I used BasicGrey Urban Prairie papers, Prima flowers, Prima Say it in Crystals, BasicGrey rub ons, Riff Raff chipboard butterflies which I sprayed with glimmer mist, painted with stickles and then added the Kaiser Craft rhinestones.
I have a couple of other projects with the KnK January kit that I'll be posting soon, so check back later for those. I love how they turned out too! It has been such a fun kit to work with, and wait until you see February's kit! Suffice it to say I squealed with delight when I saw the sneak peek. That's all I can say about it right now. I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays. Hope you have a happy New Year!

I received my copy of the January/February issue of Memory Makers last night with my layout featured on page 14. I am pretty excited since this is my first print magazine publication!
This layout was created using the August kit from Kit 'n' Kaboodles. Thanks for letting me share my happy news! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday!

Speaking of Creative Scrappers, the new Design Team starting in January 2009 was just announced, and I am very happy to remain on the team for another term! I love that I've been on this team since the start of the site, and I hope that Kristine never gets tired of me. We have an amazing group of talented ladies to inspire you in the next few months. Congrats to you all, and I am looking forward to working with you!
Just for fun, how about a sneak peek at the layout I did for my next Creative Scrappers reveal in two weeks?

I couldn't wait to dig into some of my new Crate Paper goodies, so that's what I used to create my layout, specifically the Lemongrass collection. I also used some Riff Raff chipboard, Prima flowers and Bo Bunny flowers, KaiserCraft rhinestones, American Craft thickers, and BasicGrey letter stickers.
I've also been having fun with the December kit from Kit 'n' Kaboodles! The kit will be revealed tonight, and then I'll have some sneak peeks to share! Hope you all are having a great weekend!

Isn't that owl just the cutest thing? It is a glitter cut from Fancy Pants. Everything you see here came in the kit except for the white mini alpha stickers which are from Making Memories. This mini album just cracks me up. Nothing that comes out of Caleb's mouth surprises me anymore. Some of the things he says, I can't post online. Thank you, Grandpa!
Here is a simple little card that I whipped up using the kit as well.
Also, be sure and check out all of the things going on at Creative Scrappers this month! Not only do we have the weekly sketches, but I am currently hosting a challenge for you to use fabric on a layout. You have until November 15th to complete this challenge, and all entries will be entered into a random drawing for a RAK from me!

I've also been playing around and making some sketches of my own and posting them at Crop Addict for their weekly sketch challenges. Here are a few of them:
I'm going out to take some pictures of the fall foliage when the kids wake up from their naps, so hopefully I'll have some good ones to post later. Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
