Brand New Sketch and Design Team Announcement!!!!

Hello to all my fellow crafters out there!!!!  I come to you today with some very exciting news!!!

If any of you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know that I LOVE working with sketches!!!  I have been playing along over at Let's Get Sketchy for quite some time now, and was recently offered a Design Team Position!!!!!  YAY!!!!!!!!!!!

This is my very FIRST sketch as a DT member and I cannot tell you how excited I am to work with these AMAZING, and VERY talented, ladies!!!!  
Any who, here is this week's sketch:

Most of you also know that I am working on a Vacation Scrapbook Album for my father so you will be seeing quite a bit of these photos and the Heidi Swapp Travel Themed Paper Collection!!!!
Here's the next page in the book:

These pictures were taken at the port in Ochos Rios and at a quick stop at a local eatery!

I absolutely LOVED this sketch!!!!  I just might use it again very soon :-)
As this album is a gift, and I am trying to keep the costs down, I have decided to make use of all the elements in the collection that can be fussy cut to embellish your pages!  It was one of my main deciding factors on purchasing this collection in the first place!

I kept the page pretty simple and followed the sketch quite literally!  I used textured white cardstock as my background and added a few drops of Black Dylusions ink to the top and bottom.  

I used Faded Jeans Distress Ink to distress the edges of the papers and add some contrast to the background!  The stars were fussy cut from the paper pad and some were adhered using pop-dots.

I added some final touches with Liquid Pearls, which are always sure to dress up your page, without costing a fortune!  

Well gang...  Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
