Who doesn't love a bonus??

... and Stuck?! Sketches have two bonus sketches this month, in celebration of reaching the ripe old age of 4!! The first of the bonus sketches was one of mine!!  yeehah!  :))  In all honesty, I modelled this sketch on a layout I did ages ago.... waaaaay back when i was just a scrappin baby!!  lol.  Funny how some things go full circle.   Here is my new one:

{big bubble cheeks}

The original layout was done at the beginning of last year and we had to use nothing but scraps... something I always have plenty of.  I loved doing this layout the first time around, so decided to use the 'nothing-but-scraps' criteria again for my new one. The paper strips really lend themselves to using scraps and i just love the effect.  Because I'm just loving a kraft/gold/blue/aqua kind of colour scheme at the moment, I had plenty of scraps of these colours laying around.

And I thought it would be fun to see the old one:


... and the sketch:

Would love for you to head on over to Stuck?! and give it a go! 

Oh, and my first ever class over at Miss Art's Papercrafting School is going absolutely fantastically well.  So many lovely ladies have left some wonderful comments... so if you are one of them... Thank You So Much!!  I'm enjoying it so much and can't wait for my live UStream chat on the 29th August at 11:00am.  Hmmm... better go and aquaint myself with Skype.. lol

On the family front, we have just been coping with the barrage of cold and flus that the season has thrown at us this year!!  Unbelieveable... we just shake one and another one knocks on the door and lets itself in.  Normally a winter lover, I must say that I'll be happy to see the end of it this year.  :(

Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to pop in and say 'hi'.  I'll be back later in the week with more shares.  Hope you are having a fantastic week.

You're really too modest Jules, you class over att Miss Art's is nothing but a landslide success!! You've got the best tut ever and your video streaming is clear as rain, no glitches or mismatching of voice and film. Gosh, both your old and new one are absolutely fab but as also I love the new colour combo better I still have a softer spot for the newer one. He is sooo cute blowing his bubbles! clever to use up the leftover strips and make it look a stunner too! xoxoxo
