Good morning all!! Well, Kayla and I arrived back home at midnight last night so today is full of unpacking, laundry, and catching up on mail and bills.....*sigh* back to reality!!! But, I need to share this week's sketch challenge over at Stampin' Connection first because it is my week to post the sketch!! I decided I wanted to use my buttefly embosslits today - I just love them!! And, since Cottage Wall is some of my favorite paper and is retiring at the end of the month, I pulled out my last few scraps and set to work! It came together fairly quickly since I used a lot of Big Shot items.  And, the beautiful Elements of Style stamp set from the Summer Mini - I love how the flowers make every project pop!!  If you want to play along with the challenge this week, here is the sketch:
It is fairly simple and leaves a lot of room for your own interpretation! If you are a demonstrator, please upload your sample to the Stampin' Connection using the Keyword SCCSC21.  If you are not, but want to play along, leave a link in your comments to me so I can come and take a peek - i would love to see what you do with it!! Now, I am off to do the laundry, finish unpacking, and all the other various tasks that need to be tended to, LOL!!  I hope you are all having a fabulous start to your week! Thanks so much for stopping by, and please leave a comment so I can read them - I just love them all!!!
