Using Creative Scrappers Sketch #247 for my inspiration. I have a tough time scrapbooking school portrait pictures and athletic pictures. Thought this sketch was a good fit for this team picture.

Gettin' Sketchy

My scrapbooking is so much easier for me when I can glance at a sketch ... trying to make it my own! Here is my take on the February Week 3 Challenge on the Let's Get Sketchy Blog.  

Grand Diva's

Love the name, love the blog. Was introduced to GrandDiva's Creative Corner by a very dear friend of mine. I'm excited to participate in their February Sketch Challenge.

First Day of School 2011

I'm so far behind that I am randomly selecting photos to scrap based on different posted challenges in blogland. My friend, Wendy, inspired me to look for that mystery mojo of mine. I'm back on the boards at Personal Scrapper and am participating in Erica's Valentine's Crop.  I created this layout based on sketchabilities #84  for Challenge #3 - 4 photos.

Tea for Two?

I added this tea bag pocket for my niece's Valentine's Day goody box I'm sending off to Texas tomorrow. She's a bit of a crafter herself so I know she'll appreciate my handmade gifts. I added the "Friendship Tea Poem" I saw on Kerry's Paper Crafts to the back of this tea bag holder. Such a sweet sentiment to share with those you love. 

Will You O'fish'ally Be Mine?

I'm always on the hunt for unique and Luvy-proof gifts for the holidays. I came across these adorable pillow boxes on Tammy Mitchell's Blog. Since I have a few friends that are addicted to Swedish fish, I knew this would prove to be the perfect lil' Valentine for them. Happy Valentine's Day friends!!
