On the Easel

Hi, Happy Saturday. So, finally, some serious crop time last night. I was able to get away and go crop at the LSS. I vowed to be productive. I didn't take my computer, just my Studio Calico kits, a few other embellies and NO computer. You heard me. NO computer. Ack!!!!!!!!! it was tough. baby steps. I had a slight bit of anxiety as I pulled away, but I know the separation was good for both of us.. =)

What did I do? Well, I shopped, which is always good therapy. I picked up the new Tim Holtz Holiday paper pack and the matching sticker books. heaven I tell ya. vintage heaven. Oh, and the new Core'dinations Stacy Julian and Graphic 45 pads. they are fabulous. must haves. =)

And, I got 5 layouts done. I know, gasp, 5. That is a record for me on even the best of days. See what happens with no computer and limited stash to choose from. More production. =) I will test my theory again soon. I can't show all the layouts. one if for Nuts about Sketches. Here are two of the latest Sketchy Thursday creations. It's been a while.

Sketch Thursday Week 10.14. I didn't upload this because it wasn't done in time, but I had it started so had to finish it.
Used my new On the Easel kit from Studio Calico kit. with a few of my own embellies and alphas. This is my cousin and her sweet little baby girl.

Sketchy Thursday 10.21
this was a fun one. More Studio Calico On the Easel. Lots of MME alphabet soup, kraft paper, and Sass in this kit.
My brother with my two cute great nieces.

I will share the other two tomorrow. Need to pace myself. =)

Hope you are all having a great day!!!!!!
Toodles. xo
