Hi Cyber Friends! Time again for a sketch challenge with Just Us Girls. This week Maria has challenged us to create a card OR in celebration of National Scrapbooking Day, a scrapbook layout, using this awesome sketch! ***Spellbinders™ is having a contest in celebration of National Scrapbooking Day - be sure to visit their blog HERE for COMPLETE info*** Beth created a wonderful LO for inspiration :) If you would like to see this card, please be sure to pick up the October 2010 issue of CARDS Magazine :) YAHOOO!!!


I hope you come join the fun with Just Us Girls & our May Featured Designer: LeAnne & our Special Guest Designer: Teresa Kline.
***Just Us Girls is currently have a DT calling! - if any of you are interested - please see the Just Us Girls site for COMPLETE details!***

Here is my interpretation of Maria's fabulous sketch:

I recently found these gorgeous ornate Pink Paislee Artisan Elements at my favorite LSS. They are really fun to work with because you can ink them up, spray them with Glimmer Mist or leave them as is! I chose to sponge on a lil' distressing ink around the edges. The beautiful sentiment is one of many featured in the Waltzingmouse Sweethearts set.

I have given my hands a try at making fan fold/accordian flowers lately & have been very pleased with the outcome :) What do you think? Do you make these?


The Prima Butterfly Pebble made for a wonderful centerpiece :)
