STAMPIN' CONNECTIN SKETCH CHALLENGE SIX

Happy Monday All!! WOW! I sure had a busy weekend with lots of stampin' events going on, but it was fun!! I mean, I stamped all weekend long with other ladies who like to stamp, what more could I ask for, right, LOL?!  But, I have to say, I am tired as there were lots of late nights and early mornings getting ready as tend to leave some things until the last minute *wink*  But, it is MY turn to host the sketch this week over at Stampin' Connection so I thought I would share with you all today. I used my Simply Scrappin' Guest Book Scraps that I had left over from one of the classes I did this weekend to make my sketch card because I am in love with the papers in this scrappin' kit!!! I just love the colors and the designs!!! And, I think it makes any project you do turn out so elegant.  Pair it with some taffeta ribbon, Swiss dots dry embossing, and the Big Shot Butterfly die cut, and done! 
 So, here is the sketch I designed for this week's challenge - yes, I know I changed up my own sketch a bit, I tend to do this a lot, LOL!! But, the basic elements are still there, I just added a layer!  Feel free to play along and if you are a demonstrator, make sure you go over to the site and upload your take on it so we can all see!!!  Now, I am off to take care of some paperwork (uggghhh.....) and then get ready for another workhop.  Thanks for stopping by, I really love it when you do!!!
