Winner and Sketch Challenge

First up I have a layout for this months sketch challenge on the Bo Bunny blog.  I also had to do the sketch this month which can be quite a daunting project to do!   I actually do a sketch first each time I do a layout but that is normally with the photos and paper I want to use in mind but I did this sketch before I had chosen any of those so I found it a bit harder!  Anyway I wanted to do something different and this was the sketch I came up with.

As you can see, I have no idea how to do the sketches on the computer, I did try with Photoshop, Paintshop and Word and I just couldn't get it right so I gave up and went back to a simple hand drawn one.  This is the layout that I did to go with the sketch using the stunningly vibrant Forever Fall.  The layout is of my wonderful sister who I am very thankful to still have after almost loosing her a few years ago.W

Patterned paper: Impressions, Forever Fall, Nature, Dot, Dusk/Forever Fall
Stickers: Combo Sticker, Gratitude CS Sticker, Dimensional Stickers/Forever Fall
Noteworthy: Forever Fall
Trinkets: Forever Fall

Brads: Forever Fall
Jewels: Forever Fall
EK Success Slim Edger Punch Bracket and Open scallop

If you would like to take part in the sketch challenge for the chance to win a prize from Bo Bunny then head on over the the Bo Bunny Blog to see what you need to do. :)

Ok and now onto the winner of the Forever fall project kit from my blog last week chosen with Random org...
