ACB Card Sketch Challenge

Gin was up for the sketch challange this month, and this is what she came up with:


Here's my take:


I know, I know. I'm so bad about the whole sketch thing. My projects really don't come out looking much like the original sketch!! Bwahaha! I really never used sketches much before, though {In my defense!!} You can check out what some of the other DT girls did with the sketch here.

I'm having a bit of a blah week. A little tired I guess. I did enjoy teaching my class last night though! I started a series of classes on design principles... the original class ran early September, but I had a couple of ladies request that I do it again, so that's what I did last night. We covered some basic rules of composition. I just love seeing that aha! moment when the ladies discover some of those things. I know it changed my scrapping forever when I learned that stuff! ;)

Found this recipe for snickerdoodles this morning. Been thinking about making these for a while and finally looked up a recipe! Yummo! I've been hungry for them forever, but the only recipe I had around was the one I used when I was a baker. Call me lazy, but I just didn't feel like breaking it down. There's a whole formula and trial and error with that stuff. :P I'll probably try to make 'em today! :D I usually bake once a week since our litle guy can't have any kind of store/bakery bought goodies. He's got a severe nut allergy and it's just not worth the risk. ;) Yeah. I say that's a sign God does things for a reason. I've spent time in commercial kitchens under a couple of different talented and well trained chefs - so I can whip something up fairly quick.

Hello! Have I totally babbled today?! Another sign that I'm just avoiding the work I should be doing... laundry anyone? Or perhaps bathrooms? Blech. I need to make a run to the store, too. And get the big guy's schoolwork done.

Oh, and I finished Brisingr last night. Probably why I'm tired? LOL. Anyway. Excellent. His writing is only improving as he gets older. Now I'm looking forward to the 4th and final installment. Maybe I'll finally cave and read the Twilight books while waiting...

Bored you enough for now... ;) Enjoy your Wednesday! The week's half over, right?

Leah, I love your take on the sketch! I'm not a sketcher myself.

Baking sounds like a good idea, especially to warm up my house!

I just finished Brisngr too and agree about them getting better! Can't wait for the 4th one!
