Hello and Happy New Year! Kim here with a quick layout share using Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s December Sketchy Challenge. December’s wreath sketch was once again designed by the talented Kerry Engel and easily spoke to our holiday brains as a backdrop to holiday pictures.

I like to challenge the sketches by thinking outside of my gut feelings.

That’s right, its an amazing framelit from Stampin’ Up! that coordinates with the Peaceful Pines stamp set. Quite easy and quite amazing. Christmas…
