Here is my entry for the February Project 12 Sketch. I focused on our Valentine's Day festivities. Can you see the background stamping on the light pink card stock? It is a watermark, made with versamark.

Journaling Reads:
Feb. 2010
The best day. We had a special breakfast, a lazy day, and fun dinner w/ lamb chops, rice, crab, Caesar salad, asparagus, then chocolate dipped strawberries and orange slices. Just us!

To learn more about Project 12, just click on that blue orb on the left side of my blog!

Note: I'm trying to get this whole '2 page layout for the web' thing down. My last post was the result of 'pasting' two photos together in PSE6, saving the file as a 4x6, and other tricks to get it posted, such as flattening layers, etc.

The result looked grainy.

This time, I took 1 shot, and cropped where I needed to, then saved it for the web, in PSE6.

Less steps and it looks much better!

Thanks for your patience.

Just LOVE your page, Andi! It's precious and full of... what else? LOVE! The pictures are yummy and so are all the embellishemnts and paper you used. I love that you wrote "...just us!" I had to enlarge it to see close-up...such yumminess! Looks like a winner to me :)

Wow, girl! Who KNEW! You are so savvy with your files/photos/ and PS whatever! I had wishes for that kind of no how, but the more I try, the less I know! What I do know if that this looks great! Thanks for the terrific share!

Loved it then, love it now! Did I miss the Project 12 deadline AGAIN!!!????!!! I need to get my scrap groove on again, I'm missing it! I thought Project 12 would be a good way to go about it, but I guess I'm still scrambling. I have never scrapped with a sketch before, so maybe that's hanging me up. Hmmmm.... In any event, I'm loving seeing your layouts and getting some inspiration juices flowing! :> Hope you have a fantastic weekend, Andi!
