Happy New Year's Eve!

....I wanted to share a couple of layouts on this fine Saturday afternoon! I can't believe that it is the last day of this year. Seriously, where did this year go!? 

"Our Christmas Eve Tradition":
This first layout was made for the Blue Moon Scrapbooking Blog earlier this week. My husband and I always have a tradition to go to Carrabba's Italian Grill for our Christmas Eve dinner - it's always one of my favorite December highlights! 

Earlier this month in December, I was privileged to be a guest designer for one of Jennifer Gallacher's "Stretch your Sketch" classes. I created this layout with the December Studio Calico Kit and I used the sketch that Jennifer provided for the class. I pretty much literally followed the sketch exactly as it was. I really love sketches as there are so many ways to interpret them. Thanks for having me be a part of the class, Jennifer!

Have a terrific New Year! Please be safe during this holiday weekend. This has really struck close to home the past couple of weeks....I'll be working all day New Year's Day...not really what I wanted to do, but hey! You gotta do what you gotta do :-)
