Hey everyone. Happy New Year!!!!  Here's a layout I created of my daughter and her boyfriend on their way home for Thanksgiving. It's for a sketch challenge on Karan Gerber's blog. This past fall I was able to take some classes from Karan. Oh what fun we had!!!!! Karan is a wonderful lady and great teacher. Can't wait for the next opportunity to take another class. For this layout I used pattern paper and stickers from Basic Grey's 'Mon Ami' collection. The wood veneer used came from Simple Stories 'I am' collection. Lots of little details in this creation!! For the background I first stamped with a wood grain stamp and then a styrofoam cup. I then added various colored splatters.

I curled up some thread and placed it behind some elements. The flowers were fussy cut from pattern paper. Below is the sketch. Thanks for stopping by!!
