PIT Thursday Sketch And A Layout

The Thursday Sketch is up and as usual it's a beauty!! Since I've just recently signed up for my first ever quilting class, I especially love the stitching on this one.

Speaking Of Pages In Time. Don't forget our blog starts Saturday!! Here is a little sneak.

I also found another sketch site with some great sketches as well, Scrapbook Challenges. I really liked this sketch because it used multiple photo's. During the holidays my family went to a local house that decorates from top to bottom, inside and out!! I took skads of photos and was glad to finally scrap them!! The story behind it is actually quite sad. Christopher's Christmas Dream is in memory of the owners son.

Here is the Sketch if you are interested it is Sketch 213

Thursday PIT Sketch

Hi there!! I just returned from vacation on Sunday and dove right into last weeks Pages In Time Sketch. I even used a photo from Lake George, of which I'll be posting more of later. Hope you are all having a fabulous summer!!
Here is the sketch

Here is my take. I used mostly all Fancy Pants on this. The ribbon is Pink Paislee and the butterfly sticker is Jenni Bowlin.
