I've participated in my very first sketch challenge at Creative Scrappers today!
It definitely made me think outside the box, as I didn't want to do just strips of paper or ribbon as shown in the sketch. So, I came across a large numeral 3 that I actually had in a give-away box. I searched for a three subject photo and voila!
I traced the 3 twice onto two different patterned papers, cut them both out and sliced them into 1" sections (alternating between the two patterns). I then stitched it down and began working the photo and embellishments around it :) Turned out pretty good if I do say so myself

Tomorrow it's back to work, so I'm not sure how much more 'play' time I'll have over at Inspired 2 Scrap. I was hoping to get most of the challenges done, but man, time is just flying right by.
We got new sod yesterday :) Hopefully no more tracking in dust when it's dry out and mud when it's wet out...at least I hope! It's amazing how much half green/half brown grass can brighten your life. Rain has been here and there today so maybe we won't have to get the water-hose after it too many times.
Off to the dreaded Wal-Mart just as soon as the kiddies get home. But we'll top it off with a Domino's pizza and a good movie (at least I'm hoping).
Have a good weekend!
