SBD Monthly Sketches Have Started

Well Lisa has started the monthly Sketch Challenges over at Scrapbooking by Design. She's made an early start on February's Challenge & this is my take on the sketch - the original has only one photo...but I had to use 3 cos these boys are so freakin cute!! I am also making a point of using my RAK's/swaps this year - no point keeping them for "someday" so I have used some of the Heidi Swapp chipboard letters I received from Janine & also the "cousins" down the bottom is mostly made up of ribbon letters that I was RAKed by Lorrie...I gotta say that using these products brings a certain sense of specialness to the LO for thanks ladies :o)
The rest of the LO is mostly from Ali's January kit...which I am in love with...also if you want a sensational kit for Feb you simply have to check out the sneaks of Embellished's Lush & Lavish kit
My other little share is a sneak of a CJ entry I whipped up last night - forgot that I ought to get it off before I go on this is for Nan Jule's Christmas CJ...yes I slipped a concho in - only one left now hahahahahaha.
I also recycled my poinsettias from the xmas crackers I made - they were just too gorgeous to toss, so Nan Jules has managed to score one LOL.
Well my boy isn't feeling too well today , so I'm going to see if he'll have a bot-bot & moe nui.
If not maybe he'd like some snuggles while I try to finish my book...its such a good book (The Janson Directive) - but I haven't had the chance to just sit & its like I've been matching a movie for 2 weeks & hitting pause after every 10 minutes...meanwhile I discovered that I just love to munch while reading...and I always reach for choccy bikkies first...well once I realised this I made a change...the first day I got myself a huge bowl of sprouts (YUM!!) and the next I got a bowl of grapes...OK the 3rd I was back on the bikkies...but today I'm heading for the grapes again :o)
Ok geting the summons...better dash :o)

oh wow loving these layouts. The cj one looks stunning. I agree it a good idea to use these rak gifts rather than saving them up. Love the cousnins one and how you used the diary entry to do your journalling on it.
