My Time ... SKETCHES Made Easy!

Today is the {official} launch of the NEW weekly challenge blog for My Time Made Easy!  Each Thursday, Lauren will be bringing us a Pretty Pattern Sketch to create with and each Sunday we will be treated to a Perfect Palette of Colors to design with!  How fun is that??!!??


I was tickled {pink} when Lauren invited me to be on the sketch Design Team ... she is so wonderful and I just adore working with the MTME girlies -- they are so much fun and so inspirational.  It's like a little family!!  So, without further ado, here is Pretty Pattern Sketch #1.   I LOVE the layers of fun here!


In my own shabby little style, I loaded up the layers with yummy embellies -- blue glittered chipboard flourishes, an aqua trinket pin, pretty white lace with blue sequins, an aqua shabby flower, an antique oil rubbed bronze brad, a dainty paper doilie, a chipboard crown spritzed with blue glimmer mist and then sugared with glitter ...


... a stamped metal ring - I used the Monograms Defined stamp set - and pretty papers from the shop -- Cool Romance, Botanical Beauties.


We're so excited to have you play along with our weekly sketch and color challenges!  I cannot wait to see what you will all create with the MTME Pretty Patterns and Perfect Palettes each week!

Thanks for peeking in today :)

Challenges for this card:

MTME #1 - sketch
Die Cut Dreams #85 - special friend or mother
Simon Says Stamp - birthday
CR84FN #19 - aqua, steel blue, gray
