I love Stuck?! Sketches

So, this is my exciting news for the week...I'm one of the new CT members at Stuck?! Which means I get to pull out my scrapbooking stash and play with a new sketch twice each month! Which is sooooo good because if you're like me, you sometimes need a little kick to get going :-))

Here is this month's first sketch:

I love to see the different interpretations of one sketch! Mine will be revealed on Monday. Be sure to visit Stuck?! and submit your own page...great prizes to be won.

...and I also get to share my application page with you.

This is a page I really like... it definitely highlights Tasmin's happiness and I love scrapbooking for that. Pages like this help me hold on to the positives.

Materials: Bazzill cardstock, Kaisercraft patterned paper, Glimmer Mist, Memories Mist, Imaginarium chipboard, Judikins Embossing Powder, Tim Holtz artistry stamp, black StazOn ink, Zig writer.

I've had two pages accepted for publication with Scrapbooking Memories magazine too so fingers crossed with those! After my honourable mentions last year, it would be thrilling to have another layout or two published.

A couple of weeks back i was thrilled to bits to receive a Canon Selphy photo printer for my birthday. It was 'regifted' to me from my sister who'd had it virtually unopened still in its box, for three years! It works just fine, printing great images straight from my Canon 550d and the Canon Ixus. I've found that I can transfer photos from my iPhone to the laptop via the Canon Eos software, save on to the memory card, and print to the Selphy from there.

This has very exciting implications for my Project Life album. This year whilst I kept up my photo a day the images were banking up on my iphone unprinted and I was beginning to despair that I would ever "catch up". This project is very important to me, documenting each week, because our life moves so quickly that it's all I can do to hang on to a bit of it and own it.

So I'm slowly catching up and as a way of keeping myself 'regular' I'm going to do an Ali Edwards I think and post my Project Life spread each week.
