Combo Challenge :)

Good evening!! Can you believe there are only 8 more sleeps until the big day?!? That just seems *wrong* in my eyes...where did the time go? I guess with being home every day and homeschooling my 2 kids this school term, days just seem to flow into each other and POOF, they are gone! One of the many benefits of homeschooling, is at least I *can* craft every day if I choose to *insert happy dance here*

Tonight my good friend, Melissa, and I chose to challenge each other by using the same challenges and see what we come up with. Make sure you pop on over and check our her WONDERFUL creation! We chose to combine 2 great challenges. One from Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge and one from Diva Coffee Break Design Challenge.

This is the sketch challenge from Splitcoast:

....and this is the color challenge from Diva Coffee Break Designs: is my creation combining the two. I must say, I fussed a lot over the colors of the challenge. I like all the colors together, I just didn't really know *how* to combine them all :) I think I did pretty darn good...hee hee! The sketch challenge this week was fun! Thanks to everyone who creates these wonderful challenges for us who are CHALLENGED (LOL) I speak for myself when I say that - I have difficulty creating on my own a lot of the time, so I, for one, totally appreciate the sketch and color challenges :) Let me know what you think ok?!
