I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday - ours was good even though my son ended up with a double ear infection & my husband had 5 teeth pulled :) Definitely not quite a relaxing holiday - as I spent most of it playing "nurse" :) Still, it was nice being with family:) 

As many of you know I announced on my sketch site that I would not be continuing with it in 2010 - I have such mixed emotions about this but truly believe in my heart of hearts I am making the right decision.  What will I do with all those Sundays in 2010???  Probably scrap :)  

On to something special to share - Tara over at Magpie Club asked if I might try my hands at a 2-pager for December.  Now I have not done one of these in like 2 years & honestly I was a bit intimidated to even try but I am so glad she asked me to - I am really happy with how it turned out & loved the opportunity to use larger pics on a multi-pic page :)  First let me entice you with the sneak of this fabulous kit - it is FULL of all things holiday - right up my alley :)



Here is my two page sketch - my first one :)  A bit of a challenge to figure it all out in Photoshop but I did it :)



And here is my sample based on the sketch - everything here is from the Main Magpie kit which is up for sale tonight - this WILL go fast so make sure to grab it before it is gone!!


A few close-ups :)



Also - thanks to everyone for sharing all the wonderful things they are thankful for - my randomly chosen winner is LindaR!!

Linda - please email me at dailyscrap@gmail.com with you address & I will send it out to you!! Congrats!!  

I have LOTS to share in the coming week everyone - so keep checking back!!

  2. Julie, I saw this in Tara's email. It is just beautiful. I used to do nothing but 2 pagers. Now doing mostly singles. But love a two page sketch, as I do take a ton of photos. Your photos of Ryan are beautiful. And your LO... amazing!! I just love it! I love all the layers and all of your sewing on all of your LO's is superb!!
    Hope your DH and Ryan are feeling better!! :)
