Saturday's Canvas



Happy Saturday, and thanks for stopping by!

Time for another edition of Jen's Sketch for You to Try. Isn't this layout so much fun?!?! Stop by i{heart}2stamp to see the sketch as well as Jen's and Dawn's samples. Since it's the last Saturday of the month, we also say goodbye to Dawn Easton, who has been playing along with month as guest designer. What awesome samples she's contributed!! Thanks Dawn! For even more inspiration for this week's sketch, take a look at what Carole, Shannan, and Susan have cooked up. I hope you'll play, too! If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: SFYTT.




This next card is for this week's challenge over at Our Creative Corner, which is to use Basic Grey on your project. We all have some Basic Grey somewhere (dont we?)! You'll definitely want to head over there this morning, because we have a prize that goes along with the challenge, courtesy of Lindsey Botkin of Jacksonbelle Embellishments!! And don't panic, you have almost all week to enter!

I have always loved the Color Me Silly line from Basic Grey. I bought a few sheets a couple of years ago, so I'm down to scraps only, and I keep saving even the tiniest pieces! The fun ice cream cone image and sweet sentiment are from My Favorite Things. Coloring is with my Stampin' Up markers.

Have a great weekend!
