Hi there! It's 1:45 am, and I just finished this layout from Christmas morning. It was good to put together a layout from one of my own sketches, not from a class or as part of a project. I needed some creative freedom! It's pretty simple, just like I like! The photos are trimmed down to 3X3 (kind of - my trimmer wasn't terribly cooperative), and I created the scalloped border with a Fiskars border punch. The four hearts on the bottom right represent my four lil monkeys, of course! I might just use this sketch again, maybe rotated to the right or something. Anyway, I love Christmas morning so much! I always enjoy working with those photos year after year!

So I guess that most people have heard by now that Simple Scrapbooks is ceasing publication in the next few months. I am all depressed about it. According to Simple's website, a lot of the magazine's content will now be included in Creating Keepsakes, and Cathy Zielske and Stacy Julian will move over to CK. I'm so bummed about this!! Simple was a perfect fit for me. I'm crossing my fingers that I'll still get my Simple fix through CK.

I hope to post my layout for week 2 of Project 365 in the next day or two. Have a wonderful weekend! :)
