Kaisercraft Saturday Sketch - January #1

I have wanted to start a blog now for a while, but was always a bit reluctant as i thought i might not keep it regularly updated because, frankly, i'm the Queen of Procrastination.  What finally made me decide to take the plunge was visiting all the wonderful scrapbooking blogs on the web, including one of my favorites at Kaisercraft which hosts contests and challenges every month for its followers.  This is actually the first scrap contest i've entered since i took up this hobby... and it probably will not be my last. (Oh, and just a little secret between you and me: one of my resolution for 2011 is to get a layout published for the first time! Wish me luck!!!)  

Daddy's Hands

This layout was done using mostly the Kaisercraft Up, Up & Away collection and Alpha Chipboard #1.  I have to say that it has become my newest favorite layout (ok, i admit, i change favorites all the time - hehe).  I adore the earth tones (so pleasing to the eye) and i truly enjoyed making the pinwheels (so easy to do).  And for those who don't know me yet and who might wonder, no, the beautiful little girls on the pictures are not mine. (I have not been blessed with that miracle yet.)  Meet my nieces, soon-to-be-6 Ella & just-turned-4 Daphne with their dad, my brother Christian.  Needless to say, you'll soon notice that Ella & Daphne are two of my favorite scrapbooking Muses!

Well, i hope you've enjoyed my first official post.  Wish me luck on my first contest participation.  I'll keep you posted (pun intended) on the outcome.
