One good thing about Monday is that we can enjoy another sketch from Sketch Inspiration.  Trish posted Sketch #335 yesterday.
This sketch looks like a lot of fun with the borders at the top and bottom.  I hope you will find time to create a layout or card this week using the new sketch.
Look at this fabulous layout that Tracie Johnson created using last weeks sketch, #334!  Love the yellows, oranges, greens, and browns on this layout!  Lots of fun!

Last week I talked a lot about the paint it, stain it, color it event on Saturday at the store.  Kourtneigh Foster has fallen in love with the Tim Holtz crackle paints.  Look at this layout she made using those fabulous crackle paints!  It is so much fun to watch these crackle as they dry.  And, you can go over them with your distress inks/stains to emphasize the crackles. 

Speaking of events, have you signed up for "Jingle All the Way" on September 29th at Cat's?  This is one of the projects you can make that day.  There will be classes all day long and you can pick and choose the ones you would like to take.  It's a great way to get some Christmas gifts and/or decorations made!  This canvas would also be cute with snapshots of Christmas day activities as well.  So many possibilities.  

I hope you will find time this week to create!


  1. I like that sketch! Any time they use more than one pic I like them! Ha, ha. Love Tracie's layout. The colors are beautiful and I like crackle paint too! Such interesting textures!
