2 Sketches 4 You... and a TOOT!!

Have you ever checked out the 2 Sketches 4 You blog??? If not.. go check it out and play along. Laura, Kazan and their amazing DT are posting really awesome sketches and ideas every week!! I didn't have time to play along before..... but I just couldn't resist this weeks's sketch by Kazan!!!


This is my take on it (I've used Little Yellow Bycicle papers here.. so bright and fun! And I just can't get enough of those cute Melissa Fances rubons):


TOOOT -->> While checking my e-mail this morning I found an e-mail from
Scrapbook Trends Magazine requesting one of my layouts for their January 2009 issue!!!! Just can't believe it!!! WOOHOO!! So excited!! It's a layout about my little niece Demi. My sister is soooo proud! Just can't wait to see it in print!

Talking about Demi.. I took these pictures of her during my birthday party last Saturday.. she's growing so fast! (my dad is her best friend..and she adores our doggies)

And.. I'd like to give a biiiiiig shout out to my sweet friend Revlie who was chosen as one of the Runners-up for Memory Makers Masters!!!! I'm so happy for you girlie!! WOOHOO!!!

Still no sign of summer here.. more rain is coming down right now... sooo.. I'm going back to my scraptable right now.. perfect weather to create!

Enjoy the rest of this Friday and have a good weekend! I'll be teaching tomorrow at
Cards at the Castle in Doorn (The Netherlands)!!

XOXO
Nancy
