You’re Not the Boss of Me: Sketchabilities #106

Here we are again, taking layout design cues and, I confess, it feels so right. I have been bouncing around looking at different sketch challenge blogs. The one that I have been stalking for quite awhile is Sketchabilities. The design team is fantastic and the variation on the sketches makes the bossing me around not so bad.

So instead of stalking, I decided to come out of the closet and plunge right into the Sketchabilties #106 sketch challenge.


The Layout:

I fussy cut the poinsettias from the October Afternoon paper.

(Apologize for the quality of the pictures it was rainy and dark the last couple of days and could not get any good daylight shots.)

Thank you for stopping by. More to come, Celia.
