My First DT Layout For
The Scrapbook Store
October Sketch Challenge

Hi friends, thanks for calling by.
It is rather an exciting day for me as this is my first layout as
part of the DT for The Scrapbook Store.
Technically I don't start until next month, but I had a free day
so I thought I would join in this challenge.

They have a monthly sketch challenge that everyone is invited
to take part in & maybe win yourself a $40 store voucher.

October sketch for the Scrapbook Store.

So naturally this is what I have based my layout on.

Naturally I have used lots of my favourite 2Crafty chipboard
including this new piece, "Hessian Patch Panel", which I
have cut into several pieces & just poked in here & there.

Lots of wonderful Petaloo flowers.

My normal background treatments.

I also fussy cut some butterflies from the gorgeous
"Epiphany" paper from Prima.

Products used from The Scrapbook Store...
Prima Epiphany paper.."Clear as Day" 
Prima Epiphany paper.."Striking Appearance"
Petaloo Flowers.."Mixed Textured Blossoms x 4 in Mocha"
Plus some others too

Well thats just about does it.
Hope you feel inspired to perhaps join in the fun too.
