I did take some time to make some traditional layouts, and I just uploaded the one I created based on the December sketch challenge at Canadian Scrapbooker magazine.
Here's the sketch:
And here's my version:
Cardstock, Adhesive and Pen - Creative Memories
Patterned Paper - KI Memories
Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge
It's a pretty literal scraplift (my fussy-cut flowers are in pretty much the same place as the circles on the sketch) but sometimes when I work from a sketch I just want to follow it and not think too much!
Speaking of sketches...make sure to check back in the first week of January to see my first Sketch of the Month (which will be replacing Kit of the Month). There'll be a linky party and a prize each month and I hope lots of you will participate!
