Creative Scrappers #140 and More Echo Park

Good Morning,
I am getting in one more layout for Creative Scrappers January contest. I was able to complete 2 of them, not to shabby! I am trying to create more layouts and less cards, we'll see how that goes. Check back wednesday for a super cute Valentine's Day card!

Here is the sketch...

I just love this sketch! It gave me the opportunity to use a photo of me and Shawn from Thanksgiving!

Hope you have a wonderful Monday!

Creative Scrappers #141 and Echo Park

Good Evening,
Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was peaceful and restful. I was able to scrap a little which always makes me happy! And I have been glued to my computer looking at the new releases from CHA! I would love to go one day! Maybe they will be in Texas in a few years!

Creative Scrappers has a fun sketch this week, like always! Hope you enjoy!

This layout feature some photos from our anniversary trip we took in December! We were able to walk across the street from our bed and breakfast and feed the deer! They were beautiful!
