Sketch Challenge

Wow....Once again I have been a serious slacker!  In my defense we have had some computer issues and I have had a pretty giant mojo vacation.  It just seemed to up and vanish.  Yuck!  Well it finally has returned and I am back in the groove of things.  In one week I have made 4 cards and 4 layouts!  I haven't been that hopping in a long time!  I'm going to share one today from that is based off a sketch from Sketchy Thursday.  I had a lot of  fun working with this sketch and it all came together really quickly.  These are photos of my husband and I this past summer at the Renaissance Festival.  One of the main reasons we went was because he really wanted one of those turkey legs so I just had to scrap it.  Check back next week for several projects for the Crafting Jewish Style design team!  I am so excited to finally get to share these with you.  I think they are a big part of refinding my mojo.

Epic Battle

While we were in Texas this past summer our nephew couldn't wait to get my husband to have a light saber battle with him.  As soon as we got back to the house he was raring to go.  Both J and I took turns fighting him and it was a great time.  I had a lot of fun making this page and even used a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays, but when I showed the layout to J he said "You made a layout about a light saber battle with flowers?" Apparently I broke a rule in the guy code or something when I did that.  He also informed me that had he done it there would have been platforms, light saber beams and other masculine Star Wars things on the page.  Well good for him, but I am the scrapbooker and I scrap how I want.  If he wants a page with those things he can scrap it himself ;)  If we ever have a son the poor kid will have flowers all over his pages too.
