Guess who's today's Midweek Mojo guest sketcher?!

ME!! After a frazzled Kristy from Scrapbooksteals posted that day's mojo, I sent her a message saying I would love to help her out sometime if she needed me. To my surprise, she said yes on the spot! I was so excited to be able to create the sketch for today's mojo! Lucky #13, no less! The Christmas kit from KI Memories had a lot of fun stuff to work with!

Here is MY (!!) sketch:

And here is the layout I created based on MY sketch:

I must say, creating a sketch and then a layout from that sketch was super hard for me! I need a visual aid (a sketch, a layout, etc) to be able to create my own pages, so starting from scratch was a challenge. Once I figured out what I wanted my sketch to look like, everything else fell into place!

Once I completed my layout, I decided I wasn't done working with the kit. I wanted to make a card with some of the other elements from the kit...the "placemat-like" sheet mostly. I used it for the background of a card, then used my i-top and another sheet from the kit to create berrys for the holly. Still being a novice with the i-top, I think the berries could have turned out better, but I think it was a valiant attempt. :)

I'm so excited to see how other ladies interpret my sketch this week!
