Cherish Today


Good morning to you! I'm so glad your here today to see what I have made for Isabella's Sketchbook challenge. This week we have a sketch for you to follow. You can use any colors or theme, as long as you use an Isabella's Sketchbook image and follow the sketch. If you don't have an Isabella's image, check out the store. There is a free digi offered for you to use in the challenge. Or better yet, invest $3 and buy one of the many beautiful images she has for sale.


I chose to use a digital image called Girlie Apron and digitally paper pieced it using the Flour Sack digital paper pack from Raspberry Road Designs. Digital paper piecing is just the coolest thing ever. No more cutting and gluing teensy tiny pieces of DP. Just a few copy and pastes in my PhotoShop Elements and then print it out. The border punch used is from SU and the Spellbinders die is Labels 5. The ribbon color is Old Olive so I sponged the die cut panel softly with Old Olive to break up the whiteness. Oh, and the faux milk cap is from Jennie Bowlin.


I'm so glad you stopped by today. Now why don't you head on over to Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge or to my fellow DT members' blogs.
