Creative Scrappers: Sketch #237

We're in December... Christmastime is here! I do find December very stressful from time to time, though... Thank goodness for scrapbooking! It definitely keeps me sane! Hee!Hee! And for this week's reveal at Creative Scrappers, I got to play with a Kiki Halbert sketch. So much fun! Truly, it is a scrapbooker's dream of a sketch:

And here is what I made:

I was so looking forward to today in order to finally be able to show this layout, especially to the two women you see front and centre. Now, I knew these two or at least of these two before I started scrapbooking. I actually went to school with the one on the left's daughter and my sister has worked with the one on the right for ages. But it's really through scrapbooking that I got the chance to know them a little bit more and I truly love them to bits. Whenever I go home and get the chance to scrapbook with them, it's always a hoot!! The pictures I used is actually one I took of them at a local crop a few years back. Can't wait to see you again, girls!

I had lots of fun mixing and matching different company products for this layout. I used some Studio Calico, Crate Paper and Basic Grey patterned paper, Studio Calico frames and wood veneers, Maya Road metal embellishments, Bella Blvd buttons, Adirondack acrylic paint dabbers, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze, American Crafts Thickers alphas, and I new personal favourite of mine, the new Creative Memories hexagon punch. And those big circles in the background? I just dabbed some acrylic paint on the edge of an old cup and stamped away!

And of course, the CS girls did and awesome job with this week's sketch. Wanna see?!? Head on over to Creative Scrappers and enjoy!
