Stuck!? and Felicity Jane

You know that sketches are one of my favorite ways to get started on a layout.  So when Laura asked me if I wanted to be the guest designer for the January 1st sketch at Stuck?!,  I couldn't think of a better way to start the new year.  And I adored the sketch she sent me - it might be one of my all time favorites.

I love all the layers and all the places you can add fun bits to make the sketch your own.

I was making my layout in December so I decided to do a Christmas layout.  My Secret Santa (I still don't know who it is) at Studio Calico sent me the Christmas kit from Felicity Jane - and it is gorgeous!

 I knew it would be perfect for this sketch since it had so many beautiful papers and fun bits.  And I have to say that the kit and the sketch together were so inspiring - my layout flew together!

The papers in the kit were perfect for this photo of my husband setting up the train under our Christmas tree.  And the kit was so inspiring that I even broke down and did some fussy cutting from the sticker sheet.  Only the alphas didn't come from the kit.

I'd love to see what you make with either the sketch or the kit - so link me up.  I will come leave you some love if you do!

I hope you all had wonderful holidays.  Mine were awesome with lots of family time but they were super busy.  I am looking forward to getting back to making layouts and to sharing them here in the new year.

Thanks for stopping by.
