28 Sketches - the first three

The last day before registration closed, I decided to sign up for the BPC 28 Sketches Workshop by Lisa Day. Each day a new sketch is delivered to my inbox; some of the sketches are for 12x12 layouts while others are for 8 1/2x11, some single page and some double page. There are 15 sketches so far, however I'm quite a bit behind on creating layouts, so I only have three to share today.

Sketch 1 - Holiday Food Prep (12 x 12 one page layout)

Journaling reads: The menu may change from holiday to holiday and year to year, but there are some things that always appear - pecan pie, praline sweet potatoes, green beans & orange jello salad! Thanksgiving 2010

Sketch 2 - Thanksgiving 2011 (8 1/2 x 11 one page layout)

It's a little hard to see in the photo, but I wrote our menu for the day on that wavy brown cardstock at the bottom.

Sketch 3 - Curb Your Enthusiasm (12 x 12 one page layout)
Journaling reads: On a recent visit to check out some antique shops with Mama & Daddy, Robbie must have spent too much time looking and deciding what to buy because we came out of the store to find Mama & Daddy sitting on the curb, tired of standing around waiting for us. I snapped a photo to scrap & Robbie immediately thought of the title!

I really like the simplicity of these sketches and am looking forward to using the other 25 sketches over the next several weeks. Anyone else taking this class?

Fab pages Melissa - and what a brilliant title for the thirs one, which is also my favourite.

I know US dishes are different from UK ones, but I've never heard of Orange Jello Salas - what on earth is that? Main? Side? Dessert?

Not in this class, although I've taken plenty of other ones with Lisa. Are you finding the sketches inspiring? I wasn't sure... I can never leave things as I find them! Will you be taking 31 Things with Ali?

Love that title! Every one of your lovely pages always tells a good story. That's why I love to come here and see what you've been doing

Nicely done on these three - I am in this class also and I have only completed 1 page and have yet to photograph it. I have noticed that Lisa is getting a little more complex on the sketches now that we have hit the halfway point - I hope that continues - we've had a good warm-up (well some of us more than others - wink, wink).
