Groovy...

This week has totally flown by!  We are counting down the days till Spring Break!  Do you have anything fun planned?  Not sure what we are going to do here yet, but I am thinking up some fun things to keep the kiddos busy!  

Retro Sketches has a new sketch today.  It is based off of one of my older cards that you can see HERE.  Here is my take on this card sketch...

My friend Jen recently designed this AMAZING embossing plate so I had to pull that out and use it for the first time!  I ran it through with some patterned paper and used the plain side.  I took some sanding paper and sanded a little so the white core would show through.  I layered it up with some matching patterned paper and then a fun sentiment from Surely Goodness, a new set from Verve!

Here is this week's sketch...


Stop over to the Retro Sketch blog to see what the girls created for today.  I hope you get to play along too!  Thanks for stopping in!
