~ October 2012 Sketch Challenge ~

Hi Everyone! Christine here to share with you our last sketch challenge of the year before our Design Team's holiday break - but we will be back mid January with awesome daily projects and fun monthly sketch challenges! And I'm super excited for this blog post because not only are some of the layouts our DT girls did just cute and fabulous, but I too was finally able to play along this month in the challenge and best yet...got to use some of the new TPC Studios paper that we've been selling out of like crazy over at Scrapbook Deals (Facebook Group)! This week was not as hectic as most with the store side of Crafting Family so I was able to pry away long enough to finish the layout at Croppin Time FL's crop yesterday :).

The feature sketch we did a take on this month was from Page Maps:
