Stuck Sketches 1 January 2017

Whoa, I have had a huge slump in creativity of late. I found it hard to sit in one spot for more that a few minutes because of a terrible pain in my knee so scrapbooking went on hold. I have now found out that the pain in my knee was caused by advance arthritis. So now I am on some amazing medication and my knee has stopped hurting and that means I can walk and sit and stand and just be "normal" again. So with that my creativity is back.

For this first challenge I wanted to showcase the cutest little piñata that my daughter made recently. I felt that the Kaiser Craft papers were the perfect showcase for this. I guess I have strayed a little bit away from the sketch but I feel it has a similar vibe. So glad to be back with creativity.

It was great to finally find a use for the gorgeous unicorn from the Cute Girl chipboard. Got to use up some Heidi Swapp PL too. Gotta love the black glitter.

I really liked the way this layout turned out but to be honest something was bugging me about the left hand side. I liked the white space but I felt something was missing. I slept on it and then had a think about it this morning. Still couldn't pick the problem. Then it dawned on me to go through the HS embellies and find something to use in this space. The banners were the exact same colour and glitter as the Love This arrow and I found them to be exactly what I felt was needed in this space. To me it just adds a little something and draws your eye to the mini piñata. Happy now!!!!
