The Unpublished Post

Well, I stayed up late and finished the post on Thursday night so that it would be ready firts thing Friday morning. What a good thought - or at least it would have been if I had actually posted it. I was so pleased with myself for getting it done early, I forgot to hit the POST button! Sorry, Sorry! But here it is now and still beautiful.

The challenge this week was to use the sketch challenge over at 52 Sketches/52 Weeks! We love their sketches and plan to use them more frequently in our new blog schedule! If you decide to play along, please feel free to adapt this sketch to any size you like to work with.

Mia Montalvan-Castrillo - Scrapin' Mama Mia!
Used the new super glittery paper from Best Creations along with papers from SEI, Kaiser Craft and flowers from Prima.

Robin used Kaiser Craft paper for this owlish creation!
Giovana did a great job converting the sketch to a card!
Thanks for stopping by - If you would like to play along with this weeks challenge be sure to leave us a commnet with a link to your creation labeled MDCC04. Happy creating!
