52 Sketches...52 Weeks

I recently discovered a 'new' sketch site called 52 Sketches...52 Weeks. They post 1 sketch per week and they are awesome sketches. Enough to give you some direction but plenty of room for your own take on it. Here is this week's sketch, #10:

And here's my take on it. I've been saving these pics from Kayla's birthday for a while and this sketch just really seemed to work for it.

I've been hoarding this Pink Paislee paper forever and finally decided to use it. Love the colors and thought they worked great with the cake. I cut the cupcake holder from a Starbucks hot cup holder and cut the cupcake top on my Cricut.

Notice a pattern here? I've been using tons of sketches lately!!! I like them for cards because i'm still not that good at cards. And I really like them for layouts. When i'm feeling creative but kinda stuck at the same time, sketches are a great way to jumpstart a layout. You should definitely check out 52 Sketches...52 Weeks!!
