New Sketch Challenges...

Hi everyone,

Long time I know..... but life has just been a whirlwind lately and it's not looking like its going to let up anytime soon!!!! But Kindy started back again today, so I am hoping to get back into a routine and get some balance into my life.

Just quickly popping up a couple of new sketch challenges that most of you probably have already seen.

This is my last DT layout. Can't wait to see who makes the new team!

Sketch designed by DT member Anne Patterson...

 Summer Fun.... Lots of cool PP embellishments here!

A cute little fish button...ooops..didn't really photograph that so well!

XL star button and behind the photos are some of the gorgeous felt photo strips....

You have until the 31st of October to complete this sketch and link it up in our sidebar. There will be two fabulous Purple Pumpkin prizes - one winner will be chosen by the design team, and the second will be a random prize draw.

Can't wait to see what you create!



Gorgeous sketch designed by CT member Felicity Wilson....

 Looking for little fish....

A brown vintage button from Purple Pumpkin...

Circle photo on a Dusty Attic chipboard doiley...

My bandage gauze that gave it the mossy look...just like the mossy rocks that were at the beach!

Entries are to be linked up over in the sidebar no later than 11.59pm October 31st to be in the running for one of this month's sponsor vouchers.When linking your entries, please make sure it is linked to the specific post your layout is in, not your blog as a whole as it can be hard later in the month to find your layout, especially if you blog often. You can also link from any gallery including Facebook and Flickr. Entries are to be created solely for this challenge and not to be used in any other competition or challenge.

Look forward to seeing your creations this month!

Thanks for visiting and I promise I will be around to visit you all very soon!!
