Been AWOL & In Denial Lately

First off, I am sooo in denial that Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK?!! (And my birthday is Friday, but that's another thing completely). I still have all my Halloween decorations up, and today is too much of a stormy, dreary day to even think about taking anything down at the moment. This is also why I have been a little AWOL lately- no friggin' time! I am making time today, though!

I have a couple new sketches to share as well as some layouts I have been working on. Also, in my blogging absence, I did see that Graphic 45 is doing sneak previews of their new spring line and I have to say- "IWANTIT IWANTIT" (think like a two-year old tantrum). Hop over to their blog & see for yourself!

Okay! On to todays sketches:
This one, I do have an example for... I used papers from K & Co. as well as banner stickers from Sassafras and some stickles (for the title). The shell tag is one I bought at a dollar store years ago and never had occasion to use. These scallops didn;t want to stay stuck to the paper long enough for my glue to take hold, so if you like the idea, I suggest sewing them on (I used my machine). This one makes me miss summer... *sigh*

This is one of those spare, top-of-the head sketches that I really have nothing to scrap for at the moment, but love how quirky it came out! I would love to see some takes on this, so please, post your versions in my comments so I can see!
I had to share this layout... probably my favorite as of late... I used papers from K& Co., a journal ticker & cloud sticker from Sassafras, a sticker from Bella Blvd. and flowers & bling from JoAnn (I think they are all from the dollar spot).
This last one I wanted to share is a attempt at hybrid scrapping, which I don't usually do, but should probably do more often... I printed out Pinocchio. Papers and alphas are from Echo Park, journal spot from K & Co., Stickers & additional papers from Sassafras.
Hopefully, I will be able to share more soon!
Happy Scrapping!
