(studio challenge) sketch

It's time for another challenge at The Studio!  The best part of this challenge?  It is a sketch!  And not just any sketch.  Val created a wonderful sketch from one of Jules' layouts!  Here it is, wonderful - right? 

I stayed pretty true to the sketch.  I swapped out the little banner for an over-sized wooden banner that I just love!  I thought it might need something in the upper left corner, but everything I tried seemed too big or too small so I left it.  :)

Count Your Blessings

We have a wonderful new sponsor this month, Quirky Kits, has donated a lovely prize. Link up your creations this month and you have a chance to win.  So easy!

Here is a close-up of the banner. To use the brads on the wooden banner I snipped off the closures and glued them down!

I love how versatile the SRM Sticker Sentiments are, this one happens to be from the Fall sheet.  :)  The May Challenge over at the My Mind's Eye blog is to use brads in a creative way so I'm going to link this layout up.

Happy Sunday, friends.  Be on the lookout for happy today, I hear it is on a mission to find you!
