Jugs Sketch Challenge!

It's time for me to share a sketch with you from JUGS!! I'm in love with pennants and I'm really enjoying using them in my scrapbooks too. I just finished this page for Kale's 1 year picture.....see I really am trying to stay on top of my scrapbooks. I started Kale's out going backwards and I'm finished from birth through 3 months and then back to October, so I don't have much left to do with his pictures, at least in comparison to Ava's and Ethan's books. my sister-in-law and I are making good progress though and I'm off the week after Christmas so I'm planning on getting a lot accomplished then!< This is the sketch that I created for you today. Hope you can play along. Be sure to see the JUGS site for all the other girls creations too. Here is Kale's One Year Old page. I did this separate from his birthday party. The other page (which isn't finished yet) will have his "BIG BRO" and "BIG SIS" on it. I really like how it turned out!

Here is a closeup of my journaling. I love my new dies from Papertrey. I haven't bought a lot of stamping stuff lately just because I've been a little busy, but I absolutely love my purchases from them last month! The pennants are a die too. TOO CUTE!



I love how the pennant of his name turned out. I printed out his name on the computer and then punched it out and dobbed around it and added it on with a dimensional. Notice the tops of the penants too. They are another die from Papertrey Ink. I purchased the patterned papger from Hobby Lobby and just layered it with some Baja Breeze paper from SU! I added a little twine bow on the ends to complete my page!
Hope everyone has a great weekend. I'm off to shop on Saturday for Christmas in St. Louis. Hopefully I get some of my list checked off! Then Sunday I get to meet up with a college friend that I haven't seen since 2005 when I did RAGBRAI (a bicycle ride across Iowa). She just had a little girl named Marin so I can't wait to meet her!

Alicia - I love your take on the sketch!!! You totally rock the scrapbook layouts!!! Love the letters on the banner -I'll have to use the idea of printing them on the printer then punching! Gorgeous colors too :) A page you'll absolutely treasure for years to come!!! Thanks for the awesome sketch this week! I've been needing a reason to ink up my new banner builder set :D

Oh, Alicia! This is such an awesome layout (and sketch)! LOVE the pennant banner and how you spelled out Kale's name ♥ He is such a cutie patootie! I WISH we lived closer so that you could nudge me to get Tia's scrapbook finished. I'm ashamed to say I only have six pages completed. UGH. If I work backwards on hers it's going to take me years! LOL

Great masculine palette also. Your patterned papers are perfect together!

Thanks for the fun sketch this week!!! Hope you got lots of shopping done in St Louis!!!
