A Scraptastic Sunday

Today was one of those days where I had nothing to do but craft and lots of creative mojo. That doesn't happen often, but when it does, I run with it.
Sketch for SIU Pajama Party
created by Melissa Pearson

My dear friend Melissa over at ScrapItUp365 has been my creative muse this month and I've really loved all the fun ideas and inspirational projects that she's developed on her new site to keep us crafting. If you haven't been over to the website be sure to click on the link above to learn more. She has some fun sketches, great make and take projects, and a weeklong layout challenge that she calls "7 in 7"....seven layouts in 7 days. (I'll post those layouts in a separate post).

Today was the ScrapItUp365 Pajama Party....a chance to get together and craft with other online friends. I loved the sketch that was provided (see right) and actually used it to create both a card for my mother's birthday (shh...don't tell her) and also a scrapbook layout for my sister-in-laws gallery exhibition last June.

This sketch is a perfect way to use up those paper scraps.

This sketch worked perfectly for a 12 x 12 layout as well.
I love when a sketch can do double duty for cards and layouts, don't you? If you'd like to see more great sketches and meet a wonderful group of online crafters, be sure to stop by and say hello. I hope to see you there.
