It's February 12th and a Cocoa Daisy Sketch

So, first and foremost on my mind today is that it's time for Take Twelve.

And here's a little secret. In January, I didn't take all my photos on the 12th. A few are actually from the 11th. I wanted a day to practice, and a few moments that I wanted to capture happened on the 11th, not the twelfth. The moral of the story is that, 12 on the 12th provides structure and motivation, but it's not set in stone. And if you miss a month, or two or three, that's fine too. No pressure.

This month, I think I might end up with two sets of 12. In the Take Twelve Guided Inspiration Kit, there are two themes suggested. One is focusing on color, and the other is focusing on signs of love. I wanted to focus on color as a way to stretch my photography skills, but I couldn't let go of the chance  to document a Sunday in our lives. So, I'm working on both. It's still the middle of the day. Let's see if I manage both.

Remember to link your photos or layout here, for a chance to win a prize from Stampin' Up!

And now as promised a layout, too.

This was based on this sketch over at Cocoa Daisy:

It's about the fact that Max does not really ask for much, when it comes to "stuff," so when he asked for Beats for Chanukah, we indulged him. 

How's your 12th coming along.


  1. Beautiful layout! Love the "white" space and the picture of Max!

  2. This is lovely! I love the papers you choose and the black paint/ink. Thank you for playing along with the sketch! :)
