Splash layout AND sketch book (1st post today)

First off - I absolutely LOVE the new Unity alpha kit "Frame this alpha" it is a FUN kit! I love the option of the upper and lower case letters!

I made this layout for a couple challenges. I used the sketch on PCP Scrappy Sunday and followed the rules on the Scrap and Stamp Saturday site - to make a Water fun layout. I had to DIG to find pictures. I haven't printed any pictures for almost 2 years... Yep, bad. I want to get caught up, then print. Dd had hardly any hair at 15 months - I could "style" it in the tub. Supplies
Stamp: Frame this Alpha
Ink: Momento tuxedo black
Paper: Kaiser
Accessories: baubles



The second project I have had on my desk for over a week. I finished it a couple days ago and LOVE it! I printed sheets of cardstock with sketch squares so that I can draw my own sketches in it. I have a section for rectangle cards, square cards, one page layouts and double page layouts. I can't wait to use it! I LOVE this Cosmo paper also - and thanks to Kristen.... I just ordered some more Cosmo paper. I might have to sort through paper and "gasp" get rid of some before we leave. Maybe the stuff I haven't touched in over a year???????
I covered each section with cosmo paper and then bound the book together with my bind it all. I love my bind it all! I have made so many little books with it!
Supplies
Stamp: Frame this alpha
Ink: momento tuxedo black
Paper: Cosmo girl friday
Accessories: Bind it all
