Another Sketch Challenge

I had such good luck with doing a sketch for my last page that I decided to go ahead and give it another try and headed over to Sketchy Thursday to check out their current sketch.  I was once again not disappointed and got some much needed inspiration.  I also saw that this layout is eligible for the current challenge at Frosted Designs to use Glitter on the project.  I used Stickles on the Tattered Angels Mistables under the title.  I am pretty happy with the result.  I once again used Pink Paisley papers, Tim Holtz Distress inks, Glimmer Mist (with a glimmer screen) and some Thickers for the title.  
This layout is of this past March when we celebrated Purim.  We made Hamantaschen cookies and generally enjoyed ourselves.

I actually scrapbooked!

For the first time in months I actually sat down this week and I scrapbooked!  It was amazing.  I have done quite a bit of paper crafting, but I hadn't made a scrapbook layout since probably September or October.  I just didn't feel the motivation or inspiration to do it.  I started to get some inkling of motivation so I decided for inspiration I would check out some sketches and hope to get going from there.  I went to Frosted Designs and found their current sketch challenge to be just the inspiration I was looking for.  I used mainly Pink Paisley products on this with a big helping of Tim Holtz Distress Ink and some Glimmer Mist.  I don't think I ever make a project without using at least a little bit of distress ink.  
This layout is about my husband's 32nd Birthday this year.  I cooked him a surprise meal of a bunch of his favorites and for the celebration with my family I baked him a root beer bundt cake that I thought he would really like.  All in all it was a great birthday for him.

Thank you

Lately I have been really busy.  What have I been busy with?  Thank you cards!  I tell you what...Having a baby sure does require a lot of Thank you cards to be made and written.  I must say I am truly amazed at the amount of gifts we have received for our little guy.  I feel so amazingly grateful for all our friends and family who have been more than generous.  Unfortunately I have not been able to make a thank you card for every single person who got us something, but I have at least sent one to everyone.  I saved the homemade ones for shower hostesses and special gifts. 

I just wanted to stop by quickly to show off a few recent ones that I made.  This first one is actually using the card sketch at Frosted Designs.
The rest were also using card sketches I just can't remember where I got them all.  I need to pay better attention to that!
