Creative Scrappers Sketch #245

It's almost time to put January 2013 in the books, but before we do, Creative Scrappers has a new sketch this week!  Nicole Nowosad created a great sketch with a beautiful burst pattern.  I really loved working with Nicole's sketch, because it leaves so much freedom for your embellishments and title and journaling area.  Here is how I used the sketch:






I love this cute photo of our middle daughter, that I snapped on her birthday.  She is a December 26th baby, so we always try to take her out to do something fun and let her pick somewhere that she wants to eat for dinner.  She looked adorable in her Pink coat and her hat, which has Hello Kitty on the front...hence some of the Hello Kitty supplies on this page. I wish the Hello Kitty was showing a little more in the photo, but hey, I got her to cooperate for the picture and smile, so I wasn't about to ask to try again!!  :)  I used the Hello Kitty Washi Tape, Date Stamp, and Envelope.  I also fussy cut the cute little Hello Kitty logo out of some of the packaging to use as one of my embellishments.

Make sure you squeeze in some time to play along with this week's Sketch and you can have the chance to win from our January Sponsor, My Creative Scrapbook!
