It's been too long

It's been awhile since I've had the time to have some creative play time.  With the winding down of the 2011 tax filing season, I haven't had much time or energy for creating.  So this weekend I designated "Creating Time" and got those juices flowing yesterday.  I will undoubtedly pay for it later with some long days, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!!

Today I'm sharing with you a layout I created specifically for the Sketch-N-Scrap Guest Designer challenge.  I love to start out my layouts with a pre-designed sketch.  It gives me some great guidance on where I want to go with my layout.  Sometimes they end up looking exactly like the original but then sometimes you have to really look hard to find the sketch!!  Never-the-less, they are a great source of inspiration!
This is the original sketch I began with.
And....my interpretation.
The basic elements of the sketch are still in tact with just a few changes.  Are these not some of the funniest photos?  We had a great time at the team meeting taking them!  Most of the product you see is from Close to My Heart with some stickers from the stash and random brads thrown in.  I really love how it turned out!
