Project 12-are you in?

I have recently started following the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog, and came across Project 12.  There is a new sketch  provided each month, created by Becky Fleck.  I love all her sketches and almost always start a layout with a sketch.  Sometimes it doesn't look like the sketch when I am done, but it might have elements of the sketch in it.

Anyway, I think my scrapbooking goal for 2011 is to complete the Project 12 challenge.  Here is where you can get all the information if you are interested.

Anyway, here is what the January 2011 sketch looks like.

Here is my layout and some close up shots of the journaling and embellishments.

The pictures could be better, but it is kind of cloudy out today and the pictures I took yesterday when the sun was out got eaten by an old camera disk (thrown away by the way).

The background paper had a texture that was like leather, which supported the topic of the layout.

I also used papers and embellishments from My Minds Eye, Little Yellow Bicycle, Pink Paislee, and American Crafts (thickers).  The 2 and brackets were cut using sizzix machine.

Well, one month done, 11 more to go!  I hope this will encourage me to get caught up on some of my layouts left to do for 2009 (just a few, which this was one of them) and 2010.  Go ME!
