Scrap Our Stash December Pick A Side Sketch Challenge Reveal

Here is the last challenge from Scrap Our Stash for 2019.  The December Pick a Side Sketch Challenge is here!  You must create a layout based on either the LEFT or the RIGHT side of the sketch and you must use 8 or more DIFFERENT types of scrapbook items on your page.

I decided to scrap the LEFT side and I used a casual photo of my daughter and some of her dance team.  The 8 or more different scrapbook  items I have on here are 5 patterned papers, card stock, enamel dots, cork, wood, die cuts and  2 different types of alphas.

I think my daughter will be happy with this layout.  I hope you will go over to Scrap Our Stash and play along on this challenge this month!  

Thanks for looking!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

December Sketches in Thyme Reveal

Happy December!

WOW!  I can't believe it is the last month of 2019!  I've been pretty good about scrapping at least one layout a day everyday since May (I also did it everyday in February too).  My friend, Rochelle and I were so inspired to do this by participating in the February LOAD (Layout A Day)event at Scraphappy this year.  (we also did LOAD in May and October too).  My point being is that I've scrapped more than usual and have LOVED DOING IT!!

It also helps being on design teams and getting fun inspiration from doing their challenges.  I really enjoy being on the team at Sketches in Thyme.  I adore all the layout challenges that they have and am always so eager to scrap when I see the newest one. 

Here is the most current sketch challenge at Sketches in Thyme.  

And here is my take on it:

I really have too many Christmas collections but I just can't stop buying them! lol 

I hope you will join in this month in one (or more) of our sketch challenges at Sketches in Thyme!

Thanks for visiting my blog today!  I hope you were little influenced to scrap.  Until next time...happy scrapping!
