September Sketch #6: 12x6

Another rising popular size of scrapbooking page is a 12x6 size. Here's the first of the 12x6 sketches for you!

I absolutely love this darling page by Savitri! She actually has her photos and some of her paper elements hanging right off of her page... so cool! And look at that sweet face and all the little critters on her page! All I can say is... awwwwwwwwwwww!!! Great work Savitri!

Diggin' the Dinos

I love that Wendy has taken the sketch to the next level and used a wavy shape instead of the circle design on the page! And the intended scallops have become her button elements! Her little man is just too cute with that grin and all his dino pals! So adorable Wendy!!

So Sketchy Subscriber News

Shipping of the fourth issue of the So Sketchy Subscriber has been postponed.

My family and I are in the process of moving to British Columbia from Ontario and we have just been told today that the house is sold and the new owners want to take possession of it September 16th (10 days from now!!). So we now have 10 days to pack up an entire house AND also pack up my husband who has to leave on the 15th to drive out there for a start date for a new job on the 22nd.

At this point, to get the newsletter ready to go in a matter of days and have it mailed on time and pack an entire house is impossible. So I have postponed the shipping of the 4th issue until November 10th. This will give us time to settle in and make that next issue a stunning one!!!

Please accept my sincere apologies for having to do this but this is in the best interests of my family and I right now.

Thanks for your continued patience while we make this rather lengthy move across the country!

This month I gave all the So Sketchy Sistas an opportunity to try out different sketches... I asked the page sketch gals if they wanted to make cards and the card sketch gals if they wanted to make pages for one sketch.
