Farewell Sketchy Thursdays!! :(

I am so sad to hear the announcement today that Sketchy Thursdays blog is closing down. ST has been one of my favorite sketch sites for a few years now. I am so so sad to see that they are closing down, but I totally get it. Maintaining such a great site requires a lot of hard work and time.

When I look back at some of my favorite pages, they have come from Sketchy Thursday sketches. And again, this weeks' is no exception...this is a fav of mine:

I did a little photo shoot in early december with the kids in a Santa hat.  Thse photos of Kyler came out so brother said he thought he looked like the Elf on the Shelf, and that's all I can think of now when I see this pic!

Pin It

I used the beautiful Peppermint collection from Crate Paper..I love these bright colors.  I wanted to use a lot of green to contrast the red hat.  The collection has little bits of navy in it, so I used some navy paint on the background...helps bring out his eyes. When I saw the Night Before Christmas phrases on the paper, these ones fit so perfectly!

The banner is actually from the sticker border sheet. I mounted it onto cardstock, added some twine, and popped it with pop dots.

Lastly, I wanted to share another page that I did for the Sketch-a-thon going on over at Memorable Seasons.  I use a sketch from one of my favorite sketch artists, Jana Eubank

I used my kit from this month featuring Basic Grey Picadilly (I needed a little break from Christmas stuff!).

These photos of Charlotte swinging on the big kid swing brought back so many memories from my childhood and that's what the journaling is all about!
