Thursday Sketch and Moxxie

Happy Thursday,

I have been on a mission these past couple of weeks to get a but caught up with my scrapping.  Don't get me wrong I am ALWAYS behind but I don't like to be more than a year behind.  So I have been hard at work scrapping last Christmas.  I got one more layout done and I have one more to go.  Here is my latest!

This month on the Moxxie blog I made a rough sketch and layout.  Here is the sketch-- pretty basic - lots of room for your interpretation and places to put your own embellishments. 
And here is my layout.  I have to say I really love this layout!!  I used the Christmas collection Party at the Pole and I combined it with some fun embellies from Elles' Studio and Studio Calico.  

This layout is of my Jack at his Kindergarten Christmas concert.  He was so adorable.  He was so proud of himself that he was able to do his little solo bit.  I had tears in my eyes the entire time!!  The paper from Party at the Pole was so perfect for this.  I layered my paper randomly and even put in some vellum paper over the argyle paper (it was fun pulling out some old things in my stash!).  I then machine stitched my background circle and some of the other parts.  I then added some fun tags and stamped some embellishments using the Elle's Studio stamp set.  When I was done I thought something was missing and a decided to mist some of the mistable stars from Studio Calico with the Heidi Swapp silver spray that has a hint of shimmer to it and then I was done!!

Thanks so much for stoppign by today. I will be back tomorrow with some exciting news!! I can't wait to share!! I have been bursting at the seams to tell.  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
