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! :)

  1. Wow Sindi!! These are all amazing! I think you are being too hard on yourself, because all of these are really great work! And you never take too much liberty with the sketches...I always love to see how you use them and what your take will be! :)
