Sweet treat!

Hey everyone it's Cathy here with another post for The Crafty Pickle. I wanted to use some of the wonderful December/Christmas flair badges and sequins and I thought what better way to use the lovely candy striped badges then to showcase them on a layout about my daughter getting candy canes stuck in her hair. I apologize that the photos aren't at their normal quality, I ended up having to take them with my phone instead of my usual Canon camera.

Have Yourself a Scrappy Little Chirstmas

It's time for another sketch from the fantastic Sketch 'N' Scrap!  This sketch definitely got me in the Christmas spirit and the large embellishment made me remember that I had the perfect paper for it!
So here is the sketch

And here is my take on the sketch!  I flipped it vertically since the subject of my photo was facing to the right and I wanted to make sure she wasn't looking off the page.

As always we are having a contest over at Sketch 'N' Scrap so don't forget to pop on over and participate!

Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

Well, do you?  If there's one thing my kids love, it's building snowmen, and getting to build one in November calls for a layout.  For this layout I thought what better products to use then Crafty Pickle flair and sequins.  I used the Winter Mix sequins as well as two flair badges from the January flair set.  The royal blues were a perfect compliment to my photos and I love the pop of pink and red.  For my layout I dug deep, and I mean DEEP into my stash, there are items on this layout that I bought back around 2009-2010 that I had all about given up on ever using!  There are quite a few items that I would have purged if I had actually ever gotten around to purging, but getting to use up very old stash items just makes me feel accomplished!

It's December, and you know what that means!

That means that the December 1st sketch is up at Sketch N Scrap, woot woot! I'm definitely feeling the pressure of the holidays, but I still love to get my scrap on, so here we go :)

Here is the wonderful sketch!

And here we go with my take on the sketch!

For my take I ended up switching the spots for the title and subtitle, it just worked better for my design, and of course I embellished the heck out of it :)
