Thankful for...

After a couple of weeks of everyone in this house being sick, I finally sat down last night to create. I saw this sketch at Sketchy Thursdays. It is for their December Guest Design team challenge.

While I am not trying out for the team, I wanted to use the sketch because I liked that it had clean and simple lines. I used it to create the layout "Thankful for Us". Now that everybody was feeling better, and off to school/work, I wanted to create something quick and not have to think about it. I followed the design pretty much to the letter.


I don't have many pictures of me and my hubby together, so I was glad to have these even though the quality wasn't the best. By printing them at the smaller size, it worked out great for me and for use with this sketch. I used part of a song for my journaling, and added stamped accents for my page elements. Even with the sewing, this layout was pulled together in about 30 minutes.

Sometimes, using a sketch is just what you need to get your creative juices flowing again. I just wish I had the energy to do more.
