My Creative Sketches - 1st Challenge!

So excited - my first "scrapbooking" post on my new blog. This was completed for My Creative Sketches first challenge (they have a new blog too!). Can I tell you how much fun this was? I'm definitely using sketches more often in order to work quickly through my stash.

Here's the sketch:

I rotated it and came up with this: (sorry for the yucky photos - my camera is on its last leg!)

This pic of the girls was taken after a long day of exploring in Niagara Falls, Canada. We found a cute little Italian restaurant, right in our hotel, and enjoyed an amazing meal. Out of all the things we saw and did while we were there, the my girls talk about this restaurant incessantly!

Here are a few close-ups...

I used "leftovers" from the "Destination Niagara" mini album (see below) project I was working on last week. All products are from the MCS August album kit, except the pearl bling, which was hiding in the depths of my stash. And oh my goodness you HAVE to check out the DT gallery over there...these girls seriously ROCK!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm on my way out to catch up on a few errands. Hope you all are having an awesome day. xo
