The Paper Variety Challenge #1!

I am SO excited!! Today starts the first challenge over at The Paper Variety, which is to use this sketch to create a project. I really liked the sketch as soon as I saw it and decided to create a layout of my girls and I having a "girls only" day out together. ;) I used some of the yummy new papers from Cosmo Cricket's Togetherness line and I think they worked perfectly with the colors/feel of the picture...

Supplies: Cosmo Cricket Paper - Togetherness & Cogsmo (Journaling Strips); Craft Smark Ink - Chocolate Brown; Cuttlebug; Cuttlebug Tag Team Butterflies Die; Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch; Maya Road Chipboard Letters - Olivia; American Crafts Brads; Basic Grey Brads; Tim Holtz Craft Pick; Making Memories Sanding Block

Do you see how I moved some things around and used some cute butterflies on my page instead of the blocks? That just goes to show you how versatile sketches can be! Get never know what you can do until you try. ;)

If you decide to play along with us and create something using the sketch, you'll have a chance to win this awesome kit from Paper Poppy Kit Co., filled with amazing products!

I hope you'll join in the fun! I can't wait to see what everyone will be creating. :) Also, make sure you head over to the TPV blog and check out the other DT creations posted today...they're awesome!! Thanks so much for your visit. ;)
