Sassy Lil Sketch

Hey everyone!
Can you say addicted?  Yup that's  what I am!  I am loving these sketches and I am totally addicted!  I did the new one sketch challenge that came out on the 21st of December from Sassy lil' Sketches.  I had so much fun!
Here is my take--This fall we went to a local festival and they had a person making balloon figures.  The boys were just amazed!  I love their expressions on their faces.  Just way too cute!  Michael had them make a ghost and Jack got a double light saber from Star Wars. 
Here I made a journaling spot with some of the scrap.  It is hard to see but I inked the edges of the journaling spot and the edges of the scallops at the bottom with Black Soot from Tim Holtz.
I used once again some of my DCWV rub on stitches.  My little sewing machine is one the blink and I haven't decided if I want to get a new one or not.  I might just try to fiddle with it again to see if I can get it to run.
Paper:  Pebbles
buttons and twine:  paper trey ink
rub ons: DCWV

I have made a pack with myself that I can't buy any more paper until I clear out some of my old stuff--So with this layout I cleared this line out!  I have had it FOREVER!  I thought the colors just worked with it.  

Well yesterday I wanted to get a start on taking down the Christmas tree but I got caught up instead in cleaning out the basement toys. 
The one thing I hate about Christmas is all the new toys--where do they go?  So I cleared out a bunch--some are going to charity and some I will rotate.  I like to rotate toys.  Keep some in storage and in about six months put them back into circulation and take others out.  Keeps them happy that way. I have found with mine--if there are tons and tons of toys they don't play with any of them but when I keep the amount down they play with them more.  So today I am going to try and take down the upstairs decorations. 

Well I hope everyone has a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Such a cute layout! That is a good pact - I wish I could *force* myself to do that, but I have no power when it comes to scrapbook supplies. It helps that I don't have a LSS close by. Looks like you had a great Christmas! :)

Love the layout, I always love your take on the different sketches. Very inspiring! I had intentions of taking down decorations yesterday as well, but went shopping with my mom and sister. So, I'm off to take them down today! Wish me luck and I'll send some your way! Ha!

Cute layout! I love sketches too! It makes it 100 times easier to get a layout or card finished.

Your boys are SO CUTE! You have some great shots of them in this layout. I love using the Tim Holtz inks, too. I was going to start using up my paper stash and not buy anymore. Then I just bought a pack of Christmas paper the other day half off.:-P I need more self-control! Thanks for sharing!
