The Shabby Tea Room #44!

Good morning friends and welcome to this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room!  Week #44 brings Pattie as our fabby host and she is challenging us to our VERY FIRST sketch challenge ever!  WOW!

I {heart} working with sketches ... they are such a wonderful springboard of inspiration to begin creating with!

 This sketch sure doesn't disappoint ... isn't it amazing with all it's lovely layers!

And here is my little ol' take on the sketch!  It was so much fun to play with!!  I used a digital image from Robyn's Fettish - this week's Tea Room sponsor - called 'Sammy Snowman', some new papers and stamp set from Papertrey Ink and some pretty digital snowflake papers from My Time Made Easy!  These snowflake papers are FREE, so hop on over to MTME and print yourself off a set to play with :)

Robyn is providing this week's Tea Room winner with 2 complimentary digital images!

Please visit the Tea Room for all the challenge and prize details and to be inspired by the Shabby Girls' creations this week:
