Got Sketch?

Happy Tax Day, all!

Ok, so that's a huge oxymoron for a lot of us - me included! - but after today, it's all over, right? So it's time to have fun and move on to something a little more exciting!!

This month I had the honor of creating a layout based on this sketch by the awesomely talented Valerie Salmon for Got Sketch? - her fantastic sketch blog.

It's no secret that I adore sketches and Valerie is amazing at them! If you need proof at how fantastic she is, it's Got Sketch?'s 2nd Birthday and I am so honored to have been asked to be a part of the celebration along with these other incredible designers!

I hope you'll visit the site HERE to see the beautiful layouts everyone did with this sketch. (Mine, along with the supply list, is below.) The prize sponsor for this week's contest is The Scarlet Lime, Christy Tomlinson's wonderful kit club, so you know you want to be a part of that! And if that's not enough, Valerie is giving a lucky winner a LAYOUT PAGE designed by her just for them! I love that idea so much that I'm tempted to ask Valerie if I can be in the running just to get a page by her for myself! ;)

Have a fantastic hump day!

The colors on your layout just shout Happy Spring. Can you believe we're actually getting a refund this year? Just wish it wasn't because of the downturn in business. Oh, it's a beautiful day anyway.
