New Mid Month Sketch Challenge at Stuck?! Sketches!

It's the 15th of the month and that means it's reveal day over at Stuck?! Sketches! For today's sketch I used up some of my precious October Afternoon stash to scrap these photos of me from last Christmas. I'm a huge Outlander fan and my kids bought me the 2nd season of Outlander on dvd. Earlier in December I had already gotten the "All I wish for Christmas ..... " sweater and I decided I really needed to create a layout about these presents, if only to thank my kids (I really have the best kids in the whole world!)!

Such a shame October Afternoon is no more ... but no dwelling on that, on to Laura Whitaker's new sketch!

I have to admit that I often struggle with diagonal sketches. All the while when I was creating my page I had everything straight and only in the last minute did I decide to follow the sketch and to rearrange the whole pile and adhere it all diagonal (don't know if I did the right thing though, if I hadn't stitched it I think I would tear it all loose again and adhere it straight once again, lol). 

Here are a couple of close-ups: 

The flair buttons are from "A Flair For Buttons" and are the only non-OA products I used. 

Soooo loving all the vintage die-cuts and stickers!

And now onto the sponsors for this sketch: 
  • Creative Embellishments, who are offering a $25.00 gift certificate to their online store, to one lucky participant!

  •  and Wycinanka, who are offering a beautiful themed prize pack to a second lucky participant!

Apart from these prizes we will also be choosing one scrapbooker from each challenge to guest with us at a later date!

In case you decide to play along with us then please link up your layouts over in the sidebar on Stuck?! Sketches' blog by January 29th 2017, at midnight EST to be in the running for one of our prizes! All prizes will be drawn randomly using to pick a number.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Wishing you happy crafting!
