Me & You

Things have been a little quiet here craft wise this week. The old mojo has had a little holiday, and I have not been feeling myself. But, I got back into my craft room and finished off a layout I started last week, using sketch #12 from Get Your Sketch On.

The photo is from a trip to Landmark, and is a rare photo - one of me and the kids, and also a photo of me that I actually like - a very rare photo indeed!

I went to town with my distressing tool, my pokey tool, and a needle and embroidery thread on this layout. Maybe a little too over enthusiastic with the handstitching...!!! I really had fun playing on this page - I got to ink up some stamps, I used a SVG cut file to make a flower, did a bit of handcutting and a spot of doodling. Just what the Doctor ordered! The heart stamp was a challenge prize from my fellow Sassy Pia - it is from a Swedish stamp company called Reprint. I love it!

Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Patterned Paper: BasicGrey, Echo Park
Stamps: PaperTrey Ink, Reprint
Ink: Memento, Colorbox
Alphabet Stickers: American Crafts
Button: source unknown
Thread: DMC
SVG file: Laina Lamb

I am hoping that my mojo is back to stay for a bit - I have a pile of sketches that I am dying to use, plus a new sketch blog that I want to check out - Once Upon a ...Sketch. So many sketches, so little time...!!!

Sarah, I know what you mean. I lost my mojo around valentines but this week I felt it coming back. I guess as artist we should expect it but I is still frustrating when you have deadlines or just ideas. Very pretty lo.
