After a sunny 2 week Caribbean vacation, I feel relaxed AND creative. I sketched a scrapbook page layout almost every day in my journal so that the Puerto Rico scrapbook should go quicker than normal!
Today feels like Friday, since I got 2 extra comp days for 2008 and will not have to go back to work until Tuesday, 6 January 2009! Instead of working on house projects, I'm giving myself a "crop-in-house". Now, we'll see how much my little furry friends help me......
With such a great Christmas, we needed lots of thank yous! And, I recently subscribed to Quick Quotes canvas club of the month (yeah, like I need more scrapbook club of the month stuff...LOL!). I've used their yummy "Brown Sugar Collection" papers on these cards. (Other supplies are flowers: unknown, brads: unknown, bling: Michaels, stamps & ink: Stampin' Up, chipboard: from Tami's ideas cut with Sizzix, paint: Making Memories.)
Andy said he liked the second card better since it has two flowers -- he hadn't seen the sketch but I thought the first one was closer to the sketch. I kinda view the sketches as guidelines and idea starters! I'm not very good at being exacting (probably why I'm a terrible cook -- I tend to forget ingredients).
Especially a big thank you to Tami for the Quick Kutz. Hobby Lobby has these dies and the coupon does not generally exclude Quick Kutz. Yeah! I'm going to have some fun!
Happy & Safe New Year to all! (And I say good riddance to 2008!)
Thanks for looking at my blog.
