Sunday Sketch - 2012!


Happy New Year!  2012 is going to awesome and to kick it off right, Sunday Sketches are back! I made a resolution to be more consistent in posting my sketches where everyone can expect to see them on a regular basis, so be sure to check in each Sunday for a new sketch and some inspiration or become a follower so you get a reminder when the sketches post.  Check the gallery HERE for more sketches.
My son is such a ham.  He thought it would be fun to throw snowballs at me while I was taking the photos, so I had to do some handy photo work to avoid a mishap with my camera.  I love his little Carthart jacket and how warm it looks.  When I was thinking of this design, I thought it reminded me of Kraft paper, so for this page, I mixed Little Yellow Bicycle's Winter Twig collection with My Mind's Eye's Fun Day - Everyday Fun collection.
I love the way the blue looks against the grungy kraft color.  And that plaid paper from Winter Twig is one of my very favorites!   I added a Fresh Verse sentiment from LYB to the MME Layered Sticker.  Then I included one of the Winter Twig Clear Cut Shapes for more interest.
How cute are these wooden banners from MME?  They add just the right texture and sentiment to a page.  I love how the warm wood grain looks against the icy blue color in the patterned paper.
Did you know that Little Yellow Bicycle made a chipboard alphabet for the Winter Twig collection?  I am always happy when manufacturers include an alphabet with a collection - keeps the industry fresh and unique instead of relying so much on one brand of letters (if you know what I mean).  I finished the title with some of My Little Shoebox's Mini Alphabet Stickers.

I hope your 2012 is filled with all kinds of new and exciting adventures.  Thank you so much for stopping by!
