Just Add Ink #252....Sketch!

Hey there!...It's time for another challenge over at Just Add Ink and this week Kim created a very "on trend" sketch for us to play with...Love it!
I'm a sucker for straight lines and angles, so this sketch was perfect for me and loads of fun to work with.
Once again, l grabbed for the new goodies and based my colour theme around those in the gorgeous "Best Year Ever" dsp, available in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.

Today l am winging my way across the ditch to Auckland NZ, to teach at the "Ohope Beach Creative Escape Retreat" organised by Delys Cram.....To say I'm excited is an understatement, I'm so looking forward to catching up with the NZ girls from JAI and Conventions past and meeting some lovely ladies as well.

Here's the link to a fab YouTube video from Patty Bennett if you want to try the flower...Tutorial

Do yourself a favour and pop over to the challenge blog and check out the fabulous DT samples.
