Heather Landry Sketch with Scraptastic

A perfect pair is matching up a new Sketch that Heather Landry has made with the latest Scraptastic Kit

I am making some good headway through that kit! I do think Jessica might have a few left for if you are looking for a lovely kit, check it out. 

Sketch is SUPER EASY too! 

Here is a close up of my die cut trees, sun, and clouds. 

And, a quick word about my layout.

A bit back my boy came home with news that the authors of the Adirondack Kid Book Series was coming to school. He had read quite a few of the books already. Of course, we are less than a half hour away from the Adirondack Mountains and have visited a bunch of the places in the books already, so you can see his interest. 

Now, they had presentations all day with the students, but then also did one at night for the parents. So, I wandered over after supper. 

The cool part about the presentation was that they came up with the idea for these books randomly. His boy was around 11 or 12 and wanted to write a book. With some coaching money, the Dad decided to publish the book HIMSELF. Next thing you know, there is a publisher involved, a series was created and they are working on one new book a year. Anyone who has tried and tried and tried at something knows how much work, time and effort those past couple of sentences took. A few good years, I imagine!

They simply came up with an good idea and started following a dream. Lots of work later and they are speaking at schools and being published. Who knows what happens next!

I like that. Good stuff right there. Keep on Keeping on with what you do well and good things DO eventually happen!
