Sketch 226

Hi everyone!!!  Hope you had a happy Halloween, for those who celebrated.  Both of my boys wanted to be vampires for Halloween.  I told them only if I could may them sparkle.  :)  They even both had Seattle shirts so they wore those too.  I thought it was funny.   I tried to convince Hayden to wear jeans and go shirtless, and we'd put some spray-on tan on him and call him Jacob, but he wouldn't go for it.  :)

And then Eryn was a cute little mouse.  The costume was mine when I was a kid, for a church musical I was in.  The ears have seen better days, the wire part wouldn't really work much anymore.  But it didn't bother Eryn.

And just for fun:

It was a good night.  Well until my car died and left us a bit stranded.  But I am thankful we had people who could help in this situation.


Well it time for a new sketch challenge!!  You ready?  

If you are new to my sketches, here's how it works:

I essentially create three versions of one sketch each time. There will be one 12x12 scrapbook sketch, one double page sketch (12x24), and one card sketch (A4). This makes it easier for all types of crafters to participate. :)

Of course, there will be prizes.

So for today's sketches:

Sketch 226a--12x12 layout
Sketch 226b--2 page layout
Sketch 226c--card (A4)

And now for the prize up for grabs...

That is THREE full collections:

*  The Silver Valley collection from SEI  
*  The Summer City collection from The ScrapCake
*  The Sweet Childhood collection from The ScrapCake

*  Your project must be newly made for this challenge, and then linked below.
*  You can use the sketches for any type of project, not just scrapbook pages or cards.
*  Please post which sketch you used with your project.
*  Feel free to combine with other challenges.  :)
*  You can enter as many times as you like.  

*  Check out my sketchbook here.  Pick a favorite sketch and use it for an additional project.  You can do this as many times as you'd like.  These must be newly made for this challenge too.  


I hope you play along!!  :)  

Have a fantastic day!  I will be back tomorrow to announce the winner of the last sketch challenge.

Hi Pamela, I've got the sketch for November done and one from the book also. I've been telling some friends on scrapbooking forums about your sketches. If I get my pictures of the LOs done today, I'll post them on a couple of forums with a link to your blog. I am so very much enjoying your good sketches.
