It has been ages since I last managed to do a layout for Sketchy Scrappers, so last week i started a layout using the December/January sketch and finally had a chance to finish it yesterday. The sketch for December is carried over to January so we can enjoy/recover from Christmas. Decembers sketch was set by Lesley who chose this sketch

This months challenge over on the Challenge YOUrself blog is to chose a word for you to focus and reflect upon throughout the year. I must admit I can be a tad pessimistic and negative sometimes, especially when things seem to be going wrong which often feels like all the time, you see I'm at it already! So I chose a word to counteract this negativity and to try and see the bright side of things.
I used an old sheet of MME paper for my background to provide a subtle patterned background. I delved into my stash further and cut a scallop border from an old sheet of Prima paper. After feeling good at using older stash I used papers and embellishments from Pink Paislee's Bella Rouge which I recently brought from Hey Little Magpie.
