WSC44: Ahh, October Afternoon


Remember when I talked about ‘hoarding issues’ back at Easter? Well, here’s something I have been hoarding since February 13: October Afternoon Detour papers. I spent some time in their booth at CHA with Emily….of course, I tried not to drool on her beautiful, beautiful displays…there is just something about these papers, the feel of them is different and the colors are so vibrant. Since I have pre-ordered and expect some more soon, I finally felt like I could cut up the few swatches that Emily gave me to play with. πŸ™‚

This is for Beate’s Weekend Sketch Challenge. I hope you have time to play with it this weekend! This is a GREAT sketch to show-off those patterned papers or perhaps you might be interested in checking out the Backgrounder Blitz at CHF. From tonight til next Friday, you can participate in daily challenges and perhaps win prizes, prizes, prizes.

As for the sketch, you can see other wonderful samples from Beate, Charmain, Cambria, Jenn, Laurie, Mary JoΒ and Sharon.Β
