Happy New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you, here's wishing 2013 is everything you could hope for and more.
For me a New Year means another chance to have fun with family and friends and record those memories in albums for all to see and reminisce.
To start off the fun I have the January 1st sketch challenge at Sketch N Scrap to share with you!

I'm really enjoying being on the design team for SNS as the sketches are totally up my street and January's is no exception.

  You really must excuse the quality of the picture as December was so grey and miserable weather- wise that getting a decent photo of my pages was out of the question.
Another fun filled holiday page with lots of colour to go with the bright photo's and my love of American Crafts papers is in evidence here.
Doodling is one of the techniques I am loving at the moment (I can't draw for toffee), I haven't got a steady hand at the best of times and making my drawing and outlining free hand gives it a whimsical feel.
I am also enjoying paint splats and buttons on my pages lately (good job as I have large stash of buttons!).

A last little close-up and an invitation for you to come and join us at Sketch N Scrap with the January sketch challenge. The prize this month is from A Flair for Buttons so pop over to SNS for all the details HERE. We would love to see you all play along with us.



  1. Happy 2013 Kerry. Wishing you and your loved ones much peace and joy for the new year.

    I love your take on the sketch...and your use of the Echo Park papers.

  2. ...Wishing you a Happy, Healthy and creative New Year to you and yours Kerry.
