Slump City

So I'm going to admit that I've been  in a slump for a while. Everything I worked on just seemed to turn out kind of "blah" to me. I think I've managed to get back on track but I suppose that remains to be seen....

This first layout is a "just because" layout. I guess it's a "just because every challenge/sketch I looked at wasn't working for me so I decided to strike out on my own" kinda layout. Anyway,  here it is (and I'm tickled with it!):
It's one of my favorite pictures I ever took of my little boy. I think I may have scrapped it before, eons ago, actually. The little tag-like-thingies are paint samples. They've been laying on my scrap table since summer, just begging to be used. I did some stitching with my handy-dandy new sewing machine that I bought myself for Christmas. I'm learning to use it but I think it's safe to say I'm no seamstress. lol.

This next layout is for Ashley Horton's January Sketch It Out over at Club CK. I always love her sketches and always worry that I took too much liberty with them. Here's the sketch:

And here's my page:
I wound up loving this layout, too. Thanks for the wonderful sketch, Ashley!

Here's another just because layout. I struggled with this one and I'm still not sure I'm diggin' it, but I'm sick of fooling with it so I guess I'll learn to live with it:

I swear, my little guy has the bluest eyes in the world. The journaling reads: "I have a feeling that a pretty little girl is going to lose her heart to those blue eyes someday."

Thanks for stopping by! :)
