A Year of Beautiful "Lucy" Layouts by Sandi Clarkson

Hello, My Creative Scrapbook fans! 
Thanks for stopping by the Blog today. 

My fellow Design Team mate Christine Meyer (our Social Media Coordinator) had the great idea to share some of each designer's favorite work from 2015. As I was working on sending her a few of mine to use, I kept noticing that my actual  favorite layout each month is usually my "Lucy" project. I did my very first "Lucy" layout in 2014 kind of as a fluke.  I had found a rather glamorous photo of the famous comedian Lucille Ball and wanted to scrap it with the October 2014 LE Kit.  Pam and I both loved the concept so much, we decided it could be a sort of scrappy signature of mine ... something fun and a little different.  So far, I have only used Lucy's more glamorous publicity photos because I love that these are less well known and show a different side of her. 

For 2015, I have eight Lucy projects for My Creative Scrapbook.  
Here they are:

"Lucy, 1940s"
January 2015 Limited Edition Kit

So, there you have it for 2015.

WOW!! Sandi Clarkson. Your layouts are beautiful. You tell a story in every layout. I love all of them. My favorite is the one from January 2015, but the one from June 2015 reminds me of when I would watch I love Lucy as a child. Thanks for bringing back the memories. I can't wait to see more of your layouts. I love family layouts that re done with the LE Kit because they are more realistic for some reason and very beautiful. I am amazed at how many women (all I've seen) are so talented and have an artistic vision in these projects. I can see the passion and dedication that they put in it. Can't wait to see more.
