80th Cover page

  Well, my week went downhill after the last blog post, but I decided when I finally gave up on yesterday and went to bed that I would get up this morning and attack once again. So I started the next layout for Mom's book.... I figure if I can keep the 2 a week pace I will have it done for Mother's Day. I think I can I think I can I think I can.......

   Paper Issues  Has a challenge for January to use a big title. I decided to cut apart the banner I made for Mom's birthday party and use the 80 as part of my title. I am going to use this as the first page. Getting a picture of her was quite the challenge. She fought every picture taken but I did not give in so have a couple of them... This is cropped from a picture that was taken with her and all her children.
The sketch is from Let's Get Sketchy January Week 1.
And here is my take

 Still not thrilled with my layouts but for now I am just forcing myself to get them done. It has been so long since I had any mojo I just think if I keep plugging along it will come (at least I hope so lol)

Thanks for stopping by
My blessings are many!


  1. Love the title page and how you used the picture :) I do that at times too for a good picture shot :) Love the overall design of the layout too a great place for the dry embossed paper nice take on the sketch :)

    1. Thank you so much. I sure miss seeing your creations. Something went whack with my yahoo account so I am unable to be in any groups right now. Most frustrating!

  2. Love your cover page and take on the sketch. What a great title. Thanks for joining us at Let's Get Sketchy.


Have a Blessed Day.
