STAMPlorarions Bi Weekly Sketch #8

It is time for our sketch challenge at STAMPlorations. This week we have this sketch for you

I struggled with this sketch for a while until I received the new MOM Subway Art Builders stamp set from STAMPlorations. I haven't followed the sketch exactly but then, I am sure you know by now...I rarely do! I like to interpret it in my own way and will often flip it but always use the sketch as the basis for my layout.

I love the sentiments in this set and in neon purple, what is there not to love!

Our DT have some great takes on this sketch. Be inspired by them and take a look here. Also this week we are very pleased that Deepti is joining us as our Guest Designer. Deepti is so creative and if you don't follow her blog please do pop over to it here and sign up!

The sketch challenges are sponsored by our sister shop, All About Scrapping. The winner gets to pick 3 DIGITAL products from the shop — any combination of printable sheetsPhotoshop templates, and digital paper packs. The winner will also be invited to be a Guest Designer in next month's sketch challenge.

Participate in all 3 challenges we host this month and you'll be in the running to win this prize  courtesy of our sister shop, All About Scrapping. Love washi tapes? We've got 6 rolls (10 meters per roll) of washi tape goodness this month. You know what to do! :o)

I am also going to enter this into the 'roots' challenge at CASology that STAMPlorations are sponsoring. I am entering this as when I saw this challenge I thought of the saying 'We are all rooted in Family' and well Mum is a very important part of our family...I think we can all agree on that!!

I will also enter the 'Mother's Day Challenge at Sweet Stamp'in Challenge
