Sketch N Scrap card sketch #66

Can you believe the first month of 2016 is about to come to a close?  I can't believe how fast this month is going!  I have been super busy creating all kinds of things for our upcoming 100th sketch party in March!!!  It is going to be hard to believe we will have debuted 100 sketches that month! I am privileged to have the last card sketch of the month up at Sketch N Scrap today. 
 Here is the sketch:
And here is my take on the sketch:

Supplies Used: Cardstock: Stampin' Up; Patterned Paper: Crate Paper; punches: Martha Stewart-butterfly;
die: Stampin' Up starbursts; flower: Stampin' Up; Ink: Stampin' Up; stamp: CTMH; pearls: Queen & Co.
I was able to use my newest 6 x 6 paper pad I received in a Secret Santa swap as well as a few older tools and the flower which is very old from my stash!  Combining the old and the new, what a way to start off the New Year!!!  I hope you will find time to play along with us this month at Sketch N Scrap!  Don't forget to stop by at least and check out all the wonderful inspiration from our DT!  I can't wait to see what you create with this sketch!

Sketch N Scrap #96

Happy New Year Crafty friends!  I would like to wish you all a healthy, happy, creative 2016 filled with lots of love, family time and of course, photo ops!!!  I have the first sketch of the New Year to share with you today from the Sketch N Scrap blog!  Here is my sketch:
And here is my take on the sketch:

Supplies Used: Patterned Paper: Echo Park, Simple Stories, My Mind's Eye; Tag: My Mind's Eye; Journal
boxes: Jillibean Soup; Punch outs (circles) My Mind's Eye, (quote) Elle's Studio; Letter Stickers: Basic Grey &
American Craft Thickers; Card stock: Bazzill.
I had a blast with this layout, pictures were not taken by me but one of the band moms who was a chaperone on the Leader training trip this last Summer.  I am kind of glad I wasn't there, when I saw how high this cliff was I was a bit freaked out, I am terrified of heights!  I would have been to nervous seeing him jump off of it!!!  I am starting early on my resolution for 2016 to use up more of my stash!  These things are all very old in fact, the My Mind's Eye stuff from the Breaking Free collection has to be from 2007 or 2008 at least!  But it looked good with these newer papers and I was able to use the last little bit of the Homespun collection papers from Simple Stories and the Echo Park All about a Boy papers!  I had the same resolution last year and think I did fairly well, but I didn't do as well as I wanted, so I will give it another shot for 2016 and see, so far so good lol!  I love it how I start out all gung ho and strong and then drop off mid year, then I take it back up right before the end of the year trying to redeem myself lol!  I'd love to see what your resolutions are, crafty or otherwise, so please share!  Don't forget we will have 4 sketches to play along with at Sketch N Scrap, you have until January 31st to link up!  I can't wait to see what you create!
