Stuck?! January 1st Sketch

So, this is my first time ever entering any sort of online sketch challenge. It is actually one of my goals for the year to enter 1 challenge so I am happy to cross it off my list. I really need to get to scrapping again and I figured this is a great motivation. Obviously living in Russia doesn't make things easier for this hobby of mine. I've basically got to work with whatever I have...........so as I compare my layout with others, I'm a bit embarrassed. Lot's of bling going on in so many layouts and  my style is pretty much classic. I always  desire that my photos be the centerpiece of a layout, but that's not saying that I don't like using bling or glitz because I certainly do.

So, here's the sketch:



And this is my layout.



I probably could have spent more time on this layout but
I needed to start somewhere. One thing is for sure though,
entering a challenge like this is great motivation to 
try my hand at more scrapbooking!

I know, entering a challenge can be daunting, but it's such a good feeling getting photos scrapped and it nudges us to do just that. I haven't been doing this for too long myself. Well done on your take of the sketch. Hope to see more of your work!
