I love working with sketches!  I like to manipulate them to see what I can come up with, so I decided to do a series working with sketches.  Take a look at the video and you will see how I take a sketch and make it my own.  Also this sketch is by Laura Whitaker and you and can more of the sketches at

Yes! I do my own sketches from time to time.  All you have to do is give me a sketch and it is party time for me.

Below you can see one of my own sketches and I really try to stick with the sketch, but I sometimes tweak them.

I can't not imagine how many times I was able to catch myself drinking coffee!  While going through my photos one day, I just happened to see all these photos of me drinking coffee!  Man what a riot!  This is something that I will be doing a layout for because I have to capture how many times I have actually taken a photo of myself drinking coffee over the years.  

What is your favorite hot drink? Try taking a photo of yourself while drinking your favorite hot beverage and then scrap the photo to see what you come up with.

Stay tuned for the layout! Till next time!

I love to create with sketches and this is one that was a challenge.  I used the Crate Paper Craft Market collection and a lot of the pieces in this layout was in the collection.  I just so happened to have a die shaped like clouds and a die shaped like a film strip.  Give it a try!  Find a sketch that you like and use it, make your own, you can be creative with sketches.

Project Life anyone?  Since 2010 I have been doing Project Life and have loved every minutes of it.  I decided to pull them out and look at how far I have come and boy what a surprise!  In my first album for 2010, I did not do much embellishing.  2011 I did some, then in 2012 I busted out a whole new world for Project Life for me.  2013 double albums! 2014 double albums, now I am on a serious roll.

Looking back at the albums is my favorite thing to do, so I am going to continue with Project Life until who knows whenever!

So remember when I told you how much I just love beaches?  Well here is another process video with a photo of Bodega Bay.  Take a look.
