This was definitely the plan!

For the past 3 years, I've selected a goal of 52 layouts to complete for the year.  That amounts to roughly one layout a week.  Surely, despite my demanding job, busy schedule and sleep needs, I could get a measly one layout a week done, right?  RIGHT!  Not only does my design team obligations require me to complete a total of 5 layouts a month, but playing along with different challenge blogs and with various challenges on certainly make that a piece of cake.  Take a look at my latest creation that can be found over at the Stick It Down challenge blog.  Here is the sketch:

and here is my creation:

More pictures of myself and my husband the day after our wedding in the Riviera Maya, Mexico.  I absolutely loved working with the DCWV Burlap stack.  It is ACTUAL burlap in a stack!  I was too excited to find it at Michael's.  I also used DCWV papers for everything else as well, including the sun that I fussy cut from an elements page.  The peacock was cut on my cricut machine.

Here are 3 other layouts I completed based on sketches:

This one was done for the March Page Draft Challenge on  I used scraps of paper to complete this layout of my son.

This one was done for the March Stackaholics Challenge over at the DCWV blog.  These are 3 cousins and my son at a birthday party years ago.  I never scrapped these pictures because on each one someone wasn't looking.  Years later, I can appreciate the imperfection of these pictures and took the liberty of writing directly on the pictures...something new for me.  I love the way this page came out.

Lastly, here is another throwback layout of my son, done for this week's sketch at Unscripted Sketches.  This was on our way to our very first Mother/Son dance at my school.  He wasn't yet a student there.  I used component from the Swagger kit, as well as a Heidi Swapp mask to add some "umph" to the gray page.  Lately, I've been scrapping on a lot of neutral/muted color.  Be sure to check back for some very COLORFUL pages...I promise!
