Good evening!! Well, I'm back from a delightfully relaxing weekend with my dh...we were at a Hot Springs resort and the weather was perfect. One of the many things we love about this place is that "love is all around" there. They also have a dining room with a live band playing old tunes for dancing. You feel like you are back in the 1950s...it's fabulous :) But when I got home and checked my Blogger Dashboard....HOLA!!! Challenges galore...I remember last year on World Card Making Day being overwhelmed by all the challenges and giving myself permission NOT to partcipate in all of them...LOL. Verve wins out again, so my focus will be on the challenges that Julee has posted for us, getting us ready for the Verve Fall release...I can't wait!!! My new Verve binder (#3) that I had purchase after being Guest Diva has lots of space for new images...so bring them on Julee!!! LOL I was able to get 3 sketches done this afternoon, but will spread them out over the week....up first is the last sketch (I'm pulling a Kristina and doing them out of order!! LOL...love you Kristina!!). The kraft panel is embossed with the PTI woodgrain plate and I'm using some October Afternoon scraps :) I thought the notebook page image would be perfect for the two panels and opted for a flower for the circle panel. Okay, that's all tonight...back tomorrow with another sketch...
