HAPPY NEW YEAR! LET'S GET SKETCHY DT DEBUT!
Happy New Year to all of you who follow my blog. This is my first project for the year, and my first for my new Design Team "Let's Get Sketchy." For this team, we create a project for an easy to follow sketch. This was my creation for the following sketch. When I saw the sketch, I was immediately taken by the fun vibe. I decided to feature pics of my daughter having a fun night of competitive Uno playing over the Thanksgiving holiday. My husband and I took our girls to Kill Devils Hill, NC this past Thanksgiving, and we had a blast doing jigsaw puzzles, coloring in adult coloring books, and playing Uno that eventually involved money and incredible amounts of laughter. I used a variety of scraps from my collection of Bella Blvd papers, my hexagon punch, and a few buttons to pull this project together.

SKETCHES IN THYME PROJECTS FOR DECEMBER
Saturday, December 19, 2020
Use Your Stuff using the following mood board as a guide. I decided the perfect subject matter for this project would be my dogs wearing their Christmas sweaters (under protest I must add). I dipped into my stash of stuff to pull this project together using a variety of Carta Bella Christmas papers I have accumulated over the years.
NOVEMBER PROJECTS FOR COOKING UP CREATIONS
It's been a little while since I've posted to my personal blog, so I thought I would take a few minutes to highlight some of the projects that I completed during the month of November for Cooking Up Creations. Each month at the forum, we have a theme that inspires our projects. This month's theme was to create a project inspired by a "gathering" with a Peanuts theme. These are my 2 inspirations...
INSPIRATION 1: Soccer Hair Don't Care
For this project, I used Charlie Brown's friend Pigpen as my inspiration and soccer as my "gathering." I loved my daughter's hair going crazy, messy directions in this project and thought she would be the perfect Pigpen inspiration for this project.
INSPIRATION 2: Abbey Road
For this project, I was inspired by a picture of Peanuts characters walking like the Beatles did down Abbey Road. So for my project, I featured a gathering of neighborhood kids at the bus stop, & my daughter Abbey walking down the road with her sister and friend.
