Layout Sketch - March

Saturday, March 1, 2008

Sorry about yesterday, just one of those days that didn't go as planned at all. Weather wasn't co-operating with our plans to go riding and we got attacked yesterday morning on our usual walk by an offleash Husky. It was vicious and we had to get the girls checked at the vets. Other than few cuts, scrapes and broken claws we're all ok (at least physically). Big thanks to a neighbor down the street who saw us and stopped to pick us up, good job too as the dog was coming around for another attack :( River is on antibiotics, and needless to say I was not in the best mood yesterday for updating the blog!

BUT! Today is the beginning of March and the first of the month brings a new layout sketch for you sketchy people out there! This one has room for a possible 7 photo's, or switch them out for papers, embellishments, or something else. Also there is a little space for journaling, but you could easily add more! The digital template is available for free in my store throughout March.

I'm a guest Sussie! That's Scrapbook Sussies kits! Lara asked me to be a Guest Design team member a while back and I jumped at the chance. This layout was totally led by the ki journaling stickers included in the March kit. I have this habit that annoys the crap out of Bob. I interrupt him all the time when he's talking. He is a little like Ross from friends, in that sometimes, he talks with pauses (not just pauses but those long ones that make you just want to finish the darn sentence for them!), which annoys the heck out of me. So this layout is the reminder that I need to stop, take a chill pill and just let him finish.
