Nuts About Sketches #145

Hi and Good Monday morning........... =)

Hope everyone is having a great start to the week. Me? I'm don't much care for Mondays. Now, if I got to work from home on Mondays, they wouldn't seem so bad..=) Technically, I could do my job from home at times.

I want to share with you my latest NAS layout. For some reason I was struggling with this because the paper got a bit warped from the mists. That really bugs me. I couldn't get it to lay flat. It happens most when I use Tattered Angels, not so much with Maya Mists depending on the amount used.

These pictures are from our vacation to Munising, Michigan back in 2009. I'm still plugging away at them. I took a lot. I used Little Yellow Bicycle, Boardwalk line. I thought the colors went well. The lighthouse was visible from our glass boat tour. The shoreline in Lake Superior is just spectacular. If you have not had an opportunity to see it in person, you must. It truly is amazing. Pictured Rocks is fantastic. That is another whole tour by itself... and they get you pretty close up. I think it ranks up there with Mackinaw Island, maybe even better.

It's hard to believe that January is almost over.... time is already flying by. Here are a few more things I'm excited about with regards to CHA releases.

CRATE PAPERS - I know i have enough paper for 10 lifetimes, but I must have all of these lines. seriously love them all.

TIM HOLTZ - his dies are fabulous. I really, really want a few of these. I will save my pennies.. and that is not to mention his Core'dinations papers... swoon. love!!!!! =)

MAYA ROAD - I must have their wood buttons and those adorable sewing spools. Eek! think of the misting opportunities on those.. so exciting.

Well, those are my favs this week. I'm sure there are some others I'm missing. Sassafras Lass will be showcasing their new lines starting Monday and I'm sure there will be something I love. =)  and don't forget
the Scrapbookers Anonymous challenge this month. it's a fun one. Use 17 or more buttons on a layout. You can do it!!! come play with us.

Toodles!!!! =)
