Sketch challenge

Are you up for a challenge?

After posting about sketches I became inspired to offer a challenge.

Use the following Becky Fleck sketch to complete a layout about your mum or motherhood and send me an email of the layout before Mother's Day. If I get more than 8 entries I will place all the names in a hat and draw out a winner and send them a prize. Looking forward to seeing your creations.

Do you create layouts from sketches?

I am a real sketch fan, how about you? I love Becky Fleck sketches (, and when I get new mags I will often sketch layouts that I like, but I also love to sketch ideas from in my head before I create a page. The thing I really like about sketches as opposed to looking at actual layouts is, I find sometimes the paper that was used, or the photos used can put you off. Where as a sketch has no colours, patterns or distracting photos. Another great thing about sketches is that everyone interprets them differently.

Another great site to find sketches is Pencil Lines this site has about 8 sketch designers on their team from around the world and also guest designers so there is always something to suit most tastes.

Introducing Lucy Grace

It has been a busy couple of weeks due to the arrival of Lucy on March 28 and unfortunately I haven't made it into here to update class information. Hopefully I can get it done while she has a sleep and Em is reading. First off here's a couple of photos.

Scrapaholics classes are up and running again starting April 25th and then May 2nd. The technique this time is wet embossing and the layouts use gorgeous Making Memories Travel Series Papers and of course Bazzill. The papers are very versatile and would suit a myriad of themes.
I have chosen to do a daddy and daughter page as the grungy colours really suit a masculine page. But as you can see in the second layout the colours a also great for a non-traditional Christmas layout as well.

The April 25th class is almost full so contact me quickly if you would like to join us. The May 2nd class still has a few spaces left but as always I recommend acting quickly as these classes do fill fast.
