close to you (sketchabilities)

it seems i haven't been blogging as much as i'd like to in the past 2 months.

i'm busy at work (what's new!) and we've had some construction going on in the house.  we've finally had cabinets built in our walk-in closet and in the extra room where i scrap. which means, all of our stuff are scattered in the house everywhere, and yes, including my scrap stash!  it's so hard to scrap not knowing where your stuff is and it was hard. i've neglected even some of my scrap duties 'coz of this.  i hope things get back to normal soon after that construction.

enough rambling!  here's our reveal at sketchabilities for sketch #19.   it's the last reveal for this term.  but! i'm quite happy that karan has extended me as DT for another term! yipee!  i've said it often that i love karan's sketches especially the multi-photo ones. check out the others who made it to the design team.

these photos were taken during the election.  aly & i were waiting for nelo and her parents to finish voting.  she got hungry already after hours of waiting.  nelo snapped these photos as soon as he saw us sitting there.

cardstock - bazzill; patterned papers - october afternoon, scenic route; stickers - creative imagination; chipboard - buzz & bloom (thanks bjay!); die-cuts - urban lily, buzz & bloom; felt - queen & co.; alphas - making memories, cosmo cricket; stamp - tim holtz (thanks iris!); ink - versa magic, tim holtz; stickles - tim holtz (thanks ems!); others - doily, decorative tape (thanks april!)

    I don't know anyone else who uses colour like you do.
    Glad your home is making progress, it will be super when it's all finished, all your stuff is organised and just where you want it.
