Scrappy Hiatus.

Wow...so this is what it feels like to scrap again...and blog for that matter! I have taken a break from most scrappy pursuits as work consumed my life, however I couldn't pass up an opportunity to be a guest designer over at Creative Scrappers. The site is owned by Kristine, a local scrapper who I have actually had the pleasure of meeting in person. I also stalk her blog on a daily basis...gorgeousness!

So Kristine sent me this sketch to work with:




Typically I have issues working with a sketch...I don't take direction well. I always feel like I should follow it exactly, but it never works that way. However...this LO came together in no time. You might recognize the picture...it's not the first time I have used it.

Actually the thing that took the longest in this LO coming together was finding the large paper doilie to use as a mask. I thought it would be easy to find! Four stores later...I should have started at Michaels, but I was hoping for an inexpensive dollar store option! Oh well, I was really pleased with the end result so I guess it was worth all the trouble.
If you would like to try the sketch yourself link your LO up to the Creative Scrappers site for a chance to win!
