I have some bad news :( and some good news :) ....

Hi everyone :)

Today our latest sketch is live on Sketchy Thursdays and I wanted to share my take on it :)

Today is also our last Sketchy Thursdays ... you can read the announcement on the ST blog... it wasn't an easy decision for Diana, Heidi or myself, but it was something that we decided together ... I am sad to see ST end... but for now, its the best thing for us :(  That's the bad news.....


I used lots of goodies on here that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com :)




And here is our sketch this week :)


And today I also have a simple shadowbox frame that I made for Brian's friends that recently got married! :):):):) This will be on the BlueMoon Blog at 8AM MST today! :):):):):):)
 I wanted to keep this pretty simple so that they could add photos or memorabilia from their wedding to it :):):):):):):):):)





And now for the good news :):):):):) Nikki Sivils announced her 2012 DT yesterday... and I am happy to announce that I am staying on for another term :):):):) I absolutely ADORE Nikki and so happy that she has kept me on :):):):):):):):):) I have been Nikki's blog coordinator for the past 2 years, and happy that I am keeping this position :):):):):):):):)




Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):)

  26. I'm also sad to see Sketchy Thursdays end. If it weren't for you and your blog, I would have never found the site (or at least as soon as I did) and never would have tried out for the team. So thank you for pointing me in the right direction for so much inspiration and for the wonderful DT opportunities I found there!
