Hello there,
Here we are in August..  somehow this year is going faster than I can keep up with! hehe!

With the new month come new challenges...

The first one I would like to share is for ARCHISCRAPS and it is to be inspired by this photo
and to use butterflies.. Now you can create a card, layout, OTP for this challenge.. 
I have created a little card for this challenge and it is..
Some lace, a doiley, some butterfly stickers and a little bow!! For more inspiration and to link up GO HERE!!!

And this months challenge for SKETCHY BOARDS ON FACEBOOK is an interesting one.. You can create pretty much anything that inspires you....and it is..

to be inspired by this board..
and to be inspired by this sketch..

 some closer views..

I was inspired to use just one row of the sketch..  I have used old Basic Grey papers for this and the chipboard pieces are various brands..
