Pencil Lines sketch

I have loved PencilLines blog for some time now.  I haven't really had an opportunity to play along until I was asked to guest design for them back in November of last year.  I am hooked now!  The current sketch is so cute!  I love the banner! Here is the sketch:

 And here is my layout:

Snow Day

Okay the weird little thing is that I did this layout in January!  But it totally looks like the sketch right?  I did it BEFORE I saw this sketch.  Don't believe me, well look at a few posts below!  I think that we are on the same wavelength!  Weird!  I used some scrap papers and made my own sprays using Faber -Castell's Gelatos and water.  I also used the Pitt Artist pens. Anyways... I thought I'd link it here with the sketch to compare and show off my ESP abilities.  I'm working on another layout using the sketch as inspiration so I'll post that when I finish as my OFFICIAL take on this sketch.  I just couldn't help comparing the sketch to this previously created page.  I don't know about you but these cold, snowy, blah days are getting to me!  I wish I was somewhere warm.  My parents keep tormenting me with photos of West Palm Beach and Key West!  They are having a great time and won't be back until the beginning of April.  I'm jealous and sitting here wishing that I had a warm location to jet off to.  It's mid-winter break and I have the winter blues!
Here are a few more pages that I've done lately... when there isn't much else to do except be inside, I get my mojo moving!
Just one for me... Love this photo of us from last April in Florida

The Wheels Are Turning
This was for the Scrap That Baby DT prompt this month. That is my Christopher with his funny face.
I Love You
This month's prompt at Scrap That Baby AND a layout using Nikki Sivils new "We Are Family" line.
I have some more but I'll save them for a future post... gotta have something to keep this blogging thing going.  Hope you are warm somewhere!
