I am playing with the final sketch at Colorful Creations for this month....This was my layout...not crazy about the way it photographed...
 Here is the sketch and you can see I took some liberties with the side edges. I chose not to use them.

I'm back today to wrap up the challenges this month at Scrap Our Stash. Challenge 17 was to use this sketch and dig DEEP into your stash.....
I went all the way back to 2007 CTMH stash on this one....everything on this layout is from 2007 with the exception of the Pink Paislee chipboard alphas and the bling...and I'm sure that they are at least 2 years old...
All papers and the ribbon are from CTMH Let's Get Together from Summer 2007, Pink Paislee alphas, and the bling was just in my stash....

Don't forget that there is a DT/Sketch Team call going on at Sketches in Thyme! Check it out!!!!
