CAS[E] this Sketch #256

Oh Chrissy... you've done it again!  What a tricky little Sketch designer you are!  Hold onto your hats, folks, and take a peek:


I sat down with my box of patterned paper ... oh you know you have one, too... and way back in the  history of my buying patterned papers, I found these little darlings from American Crafts, Dear Lizzy: 5th & Frolic circa 2012 - remember those?

 
I realized quickly that Julie E's little Artic Pals were the perfect size image to stamp in the polaroid frames!  wait... did you think they came with those?  think again!
 
I've created the 'bulletin board' by debossing a stencil on my card base, and added a few hand-drawn 'pins.'  
 
Hope you'll join us - I really can't wait to see what you'll create using CTS#256!

What a unique sketch and I would have been dumbfounded over it but not you Michele! Look at your amazing card, what a great take on the sketch too! I love your cute little pins that you hand drew to hang up your polariods. I love it! Hugs, Brenda

This is very cute. I wasn't crafting then. Are you on a mission to use up your paper stash?

This is so cute and such a clever take on the sketch! The finishing touch of the little hand-drawn pins is perfect! And, I'm sorry to say, I ran a mile in the other direction when I saw this sketch - and I don't run... :)
