NEW DOLLIES Sketch Challenge - it's YUMMEH!

the trifecta is ready for you, folks! whatcha got? :)

we've unveiled the new sketch at Design Dollies, and seriously, i LOVED this. my scrapbook only has three more open spots, and they'll be filled by the end of the week. guess i'm going shopping this weekend! :D

here's this week's FLIPPIN' AWESOME SKETCH:

and my mostly-Sassafras layout:

i am LOVING going through all these fun old pictures of The Son (have i mentioned he's turning 17 this August? - yikes!), but whoa, talk about bringing a tear to the eye! times were tough as i was a single mom, but motherhood itself was so much simpler then. *sigh*

the prizes for the Color Challenges and Elements Challenges have been posted, but you'll have to check out what my Kristy-Dollie will be giving away for this month's Sketch Challenges. i'm sure it's going to be TASTY!! :)

the Color Challenge for this week is up. so is the Elements Challenge. now that the Sketch is revealed, you can choose to do any of these on their own or combine 'em for more chances at the prizes!

annnnnd, i was up late last night playing, and decided to make a card for the Allsorts Challenge for this week... distressing, CHECK! buttons, CHECK! bows, CHECK!

is she not adorable? as for the sentiment, i just couldn't resist. :) happy thursday, folks!

  2. Hi Leah

    They are always little boys in our minds I think, although my bunch would probably wish me further for saying so.
