A New Sketch

I haven't created any new sketches in quite some time. So tonight while relaxing in front of the television, I thought I would put those creative juices to work. Granted, I have a bunch of other projects that I should be working on right now, but it's just not happening.

Here's the newest addition to the Restless Sketches library.

Layouts for Friends

Seems I spend most of my scrapping time working on projects for other people. It's actually becoming a great little business for me. In addition to my own scrapbooks, currently I am working on four albums for three clients. On top of that I have orders for stamped image note cards and also an collect of assorted cards.

Here's one of the latest layouts that I put together this weekend. It's a shot of my friend Julie's son, Preston, during a trip to Hawaii.

Busy Week of Altered Art

After spending some time this weekend working on getting my own scrap layouts caught up, I started working on creating party hats. My friend Brooke has a daughter who is turning one in a few weeks and I found some great party ideas on-line. I do love scrap-blogs!!! Now I've got to make 25 party hats and water bottle tags, and that's just a start.

Here's a sample of what I'm making. This was a test run and the actual finished hat will be pink and green with a "1" bulls-eye on the front.

The Photo Shoot

My 4 year old niece, Addyson, went to have her picture made and my sister went hog wild when purchasing the package. I can completely understand though because all the shots were adorable. Honestly I've had trouble deciding which ones to scrap, so I will eventually get to all of them. What I found hysterical was the fact that Addyson insisted on calling it "a photo shoot" and not just getting her pictures made.
Here is a couple of the layouts that I've done. I used some wonderful kits from Life Preserver's Club for all of these. Von's kit are to die for!!!

I just finished another scrapbook for my friend Brooke. Claire, her youngest, will be turning one soon and it took two albums to get her first year scrapbooked. Here are a few of the layouts that are included. Now it's time to start working on Kennedy's album!
