More news & more layouts!! (Yes, I do other things besides scrap!!)

Ok...welcome to today!! 

First I'd like to share a layout I completed for SKETCHES IN THYME ... and I'm telling you...this will be the LAST time I enter one of their sketches challenges for  while...   Why, you say???    Because I've been selected for their DT!!!  YEA!!!   So honored to be a MAVEN!!!

And this week please join us at FROSTED DESIGNS FOR SKETCH ALONG TUESDAY!!!
Here is this week's sketch & my layout:
I also combined my sketch with the regular weekly challenge to use THANKS!!
I wrote a little thank you note to my parents (and gave them this layout) as they just sold this house we grew up in.  .. used Basic Grey Pyrus...and I handstitched beads along the borders.

And over at SCRAP OUR STASH I used sketch #3 for this layout... Go over there and join the fun this month!!  We have 3 sketches to play with!!

And this week at the Club CK blog, the Issue challenge was to do journaling behind a "punched out" spot or some kind of hidden journaling.  I used Basic Grey Oliver...I had the 1/2 circle cut & the journal tags picked out and then I didn't like how "white" that spot looked, so I misted it.  But then I liked my misting so much that I didn't want to cover it up with the journal tags, so I switched & used a transparancy & slick writer.
