A layout and a sketch

I am a big fan of sketches and have acquired quite the collection. I find them useful when I have a creative block and need a jumping off point. I also find that if I take them to a crop, I get so much more done since I can be chatting with friends and following the sketch at the same time.
As part of my crafting goals, I thought I would start documenting my own sketches and sharing them with the layouts I've been creating.

My first sketch is a simple layout that focuses on fitting multiple photos on a layout, in this case five 4x6 photos. By using large pieces of background paper, you don't hide the fun patterns! 

I'm super excited to create some more sketches for both myself and to share!

New Year's Intentions!

With the new year one month in, I've been very successful in getting some crafting time in each day, even if only for half an hour.
The benefits have not only been getting more of my photos in my books, but I find intentionally setting aside some time for me each day is rewarding and puts me in a relaxed mood.
It also made me so happy to look at my photos from the recent season and I actually have scrapped all my Halloween season photos! 
This one, featuring The Paper Loft was a page from a Dino themed corn maze. The Funkysaurus Collection was a perfect fit!
