My FIRST Sketchy Thursdays REVEAL!

I am so excited to share my first layout as a Sketchy Thursdays DT member!!  This week, everyone on the team is doing the sketch for the big reveal of the new team members.  I just can't get enough of these sketches!

Here is this week's sketch:

I used the lovely Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe line for this page.  I won this line at the Crate Paper blog for a contest!!!

I did a few things I don't normally do on a page for this layout.  First of all, I matted my photos with patterned paper...I NEVER do that!  But I wanted some more green on my page. 

And 2ndly, I used some green mist.  I have a tons of mists, but don't use them that much....I need to use them a lot more.

I also decided to leave my loose stitching ends and tie them in a small it!

Be sure to enter this sketch challenge to win a wonderful prize from Freehand Scraps.

In other news, I got an email YESTERDAY from Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine about a layout I had sent in for their Spring call. Although it wasn't chosen for print, they asked if they could use it on their blog today!!!!!!   OF COURSE!  Woo Hoo! 

I made this page a while ago using some of the Monsterville collection from SEI and some of their lace die cuts, too!

Please hop over the the SCT blog and check it out!

So love your ST layout. You HAVE to explain to me how to get your zig zag stitching so perfect. Mine always looks weird...better on the underside of the page.

So happy to have you with us on Sketchy Thursdays!!

Congrats on S&C, too!
