New Challenge Blog and a LO!

I am soooo excited to tell you about a new challenge blog that is starting!!!!!!!!! Yay for new challenges!!! Our lovely friend Kim (Memories in Thyme) has started a new sketch blog!!!!! And guess what she named it........ are you ready for this?!!! It is called Sketches in Thyme!!!!! And.... to make it even more exciting (at least to me!) is that Kim has asked me to be part of her design team!!!!!!! I absolutely love to scrap using sketches and Kim has picked out some wonderful sketches for us to get started with!!

The premise of this blog is to post a sketch found about the land of blog, give credit to the person/blog where it was discovered, and challenge you to get scrapping.  We will be a bi-weekly challenge and may occasionally have prizes. We will have a top 3 each challenge and a winner that will be chosen by random.org.

So..... be sure to hop on over to Sketches in Thyme and check it out! Each day Kim will be introducing a new member of her design team each day and you won't want to miss it!! There are a lot of familiar faces and a whole lot of talent (which makes you wonder why she picked me!!!) LOL!!! I know this is a busy time of year, but we would love to have all of you play along with us!!!!

Now... on to my LO! As I was wandering through blogland this week, I happened upon the Sketchy Thursdays sketch and I just couldn't resist!! It is a 2 pager!!! WOW!! And I liked it so much, I really didn't change much on it! These pictures were taken when my parents took me, my sister and our kids for a little weekend get away to Dollywood!!! (Sorry about the glare on Brayden's picture!!) Lauren, Brayden and Emmy had a blast and I have so many fun photos! It's hard to believe this trip was 2 years ago!!! I am always so behind on my scrapping!!!

The papers are My Minds Eye Simply Delightful. Flowers are Prima, Making Memories, and Heidi Snapp. The large flowers were white that I sprayed with yellow and pink glimmer mist! The other embellishment came from a Making Memories pack. I personally like the silver wings on Lauren's back!! (Even though she told me that it looks silly!!!)

Thanks for stopping by and visiting!! I love to hear all your very kind comments!! Be sure to stop over at Sketches in Thyme to check it out!! If you like what you see, grab a badge and help us spread the word!!
