Friday Sketch

Hi guys! It is FRIDAY!!! Woohoooo!

School is in FULL swing for us and from what I hear it is kicking back up in lots of places!

That means life is BUSY BUSY BUSY! With so much to do it often cuts into our scrapping time (I know it does mine!). So, have you tried a sketch? Often it can serve as a foundation for your layouts or cards....and if you really look at the sketch you actually have the possibility for 4 different layout! FLIP it!

One of my 'tips' is to print the sketches out on a 4x6 card. It is so much easier to see the different possibilities by 'flipping' that 4x6 card around until you find the perfect placement for the pictures you have!

I will print out sketches as I see them, file them and then when I'm ready to scrap I flip through the cards until I find one that can even use this to plan ahead several layouts! Put your pictures and sketch together....later pull your paper and then when you have the time to sit and scrap it is all there at your fingertips!

This week I pulled a sketch that I and my friend Jo put together for a 'dream' company that we had called never came to be, but we have lots of sketches! it is...

And here is a layout I did of our trip to Disney (2002....oh wow that was a while ago!)

All about our wait to ride the Tower of Terror!

Can't wait to see what you do with it! AND I hope you like my 'tip' and use it often! about some store know you only have a few more days to take advantage of the STORE WIDE sale!!! (check out the blog post from Wednesday for details!) thought I would dig deep into the store and see if I could find you some things you might have missed!

Check out these 'Rain Dots' from Cloud 9....there are 49 of them on there....with the sale it makes them $1.79!

Or how about a Clearly Petite Stamp by Daisy Bucket! It too would only be $1.79!

Then, if anyone knows me they know that I just can't get enough Jenni Bowlin Studio is just one of the patterned papers that I LOVE and they would be a whopping .36!!!! For that you can buy a BOAT LOAD!

That is just a FEW of the MANY MANY MANY things in the store! There HAS to be something in there you want and for 40% off you need to shop NOW....when it is gone it is gone! Making room for the new stuff!!!

Hope you have a super weekend!
