New Year, New Resolutions!

So raise your hand if one of your New Year's resolutions is to post on your blog more frequently - can you see mine held up high and waving?  LOL!  Ok, so along with that goal, I am also hoping to include more sketches.  There is something thereaputic about putting together a sketch for me, and I sketch out just about every layout either before I put it together (now sometimes it turns out to look nothing like the sketch but that is where I start from), or after if I like how a layout turned out and want to use it for future reference.  That is what I did in this case.  So here is a page I completed for this month's Club Ruby kit - which is totally awesome by the way!  Check out Club Ruby for all the details of how I put this together.

And here is the sketch I am adding to my file (notice I changed the karate theme to soccer so I won't be stuck thinking of the sketch specific to the page I created and added a 'belly band' across the pages to better tie them together)...
So what are your crafty resolutions?  In addition to posting on my blog more frequently and adding more sketches, I intend to improve my photography skills.  Oftentimes when I see a layout that "wow's me", it is the photos that catch my attention first.  I got a Nikon D7000 for my birthday a few months ago and a nifty Crumpler camera bag for Christmas so I have no excuses - lol!!
Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting!!
