Sketch Round-Up June 14-27

We all set aside time for the things that are important to us, from our day-to-day career to personal matters. You make the deadline at work, the kiddos enjoy their sports and activities, we take the time to call loved ones, the laundry and cleaning get done (eventually!). Scrapbooking is just as important — as a welcome “me time” hobby and as a way to preserve important moments and history — so it should also be a priority, right?! So, if you feel like you need “permission” to start scrapping: HERE, you have our CM stamp of approval and endorsement! Take a look at these four awesome projects and try to add at least one (if not all!) to your to-do list this week!
