BasicGrey Challenges

Ahhh Saturday - the weekend is here ! I hope you all had a good week and managed, unlike me, to get lots of crafting done ! It's been a busy ole week here in the Nevill household what with play rehearsals, finding costumes, a dance festival which Ski took part in, in Bath on Thursday night (which was fantastic) and just life in general.

Here we are again for BasicGrey Challenges and this week, we have a fantastic sketch for you designed by our very talented Martine. Not only is she a PC genius but a genius at sketches too and don't even let me start telling you about how kind and generous she is, I'll be here all weekend !!!! Anyone who knows Martine will know exactly what I am talking about !

Here is my take on the sketch :

The DP's are BasicGrey "Sugar Rush". These papers are just so yummy !

The image is a Ketto Fairy by Stamping Bella and this one is called "Missmatch Ketto". Isn't she just gorgeous. This image was actually given to me by my fellow BG teamie and gorgeous friend Kim Costello. She has of course been coloured with ProMarkers.

The sentiment in the corner is a Melissa Frances transfer.

The bling heart was made using the Bazzill Basics template.

The ribbon and tule are from my stash and Martine gave me the gorgeous brad.

The buttons are all BasicGrey "Wassail".

There is an amazing prize on offer again from Simon Says Stamp, lots of yummy goodies for you to get your hands on so we hope you can join us in our sketch challenge this week. There is loads of inspiration for you on the BasicGrey Challenges Blog by my fellow teamies and we all have completely different takes on each challenge we do.

Enjoy the weekend and thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave.

I will shortly be drawing the winner of my candy and will be revealling another one.
