Miniowner's January Sketch Challenge

You may have noticed that I am joining in a few different things this year, 2014 is a year of trying to ....

  • do some more blogging ... I hope to manage at least 2 posts a week, I know everyday wouldn't be realistic for me
  • try a few new things, I tried out for a DT this month, didn't get in but I tried and that is half the fun, I want to dabble in Project Life, try out making a mini book or two, try some altered art and some more messy stuff.... different things whilst keeping it fun!
  • buy less stash and use more..... I am not going to buy another piece of scrapping paper until I have made at least 50 layouts....I can't put myself on a complete stash ban as that would be too hard! Having said that I have only bought one lot of craft items and have been very good at not spending money so far this year.
  • join in more fun bloggy type events like Abi's time for tea and 1P20W, I know there are more 'blog goings on' out there so I may partake of some this year
  • complete more challenges.... so far I have joined in with the challenges on UKS, I have completed a Scrapology Challenge and I have other challenges in the pipeline. Today I am taking part for the first time with Miniowner's January Sketch Challenge.
This is the sketch

this is my page, slightly altered and flipped to make a layout that will go with the page called stirring the Christmas Pudding that I shared yesterday.

(For some reason I seem to have got a bit of grass on the page.... not sure how though but it isn't on the layout must have blown onto the paper when I took the photo)


  1. That's very cheering to hear that we are going to be seeing you more often :). This is a great companion piece to your layout on making the pudding yesterday - have you done the lettering the same way?

  2. That's a great set of aims....and I love the page.

  3. Love your goals, there doable so won't cause you too much stress, plus good for us as we get to see more of your creations :)

  4. Go ruth, go ruth go ruth, great goals :)

  5. That's a great take on the sketch.
    I haven't been on UKS for months ...

  6. Mmm scrummy pudding and scrummy page, too. I like how you have altered the sketch to make it your own. Fab goals too. Thank you for joining n my sketch challenge, :o)
