 this week's challenge is "sketch it" and our darling teammate has entertained us with a fabulous sketch to follow and/or inspire you. we also have a sponsor and our darling sponsor is 
shelly from

shelly has been so kind and has donated a $9.00 voucher for one lucky challenge entry besides allowing us to  use the "beary smart" digital image on our projects for today.

here is my take on the sketch using the beary smart digital image from shelly's store;

Drop Me a Line
mini sketch book
3.5" x 4.75"
i used the beary smart image as my main element and i know you won't see how i followed the sketch, but i did. it is just my way of personalize it, i'd say. :D

sketch for this project
let me explain:
nanne has a horizontal base, i have a vertical one; nanne has the sentiment on the center, i did that too using the bear; nanne has three additional elements on her sketch: to the top left behind the sentiment is one ( i used  the pretty clouds there), the one on the bottom left ( i used some grass for that one--- had to extended to the right, but is there, lol) and the one to the right (i have the pink banner there) you see now? i have it all there plus some extra butterflies for a whimsical touch.
isn't he cute and happy looking surrounded by all these pretty girlie colors?, lol
he has been all paper pieced (not feeling too comfortable yet with the coloring).

drop me a line: 

i colored the words individually to be able to add it to the bear's notebook.
cleverish, huh? i love it :)

here is a collage of all the angle i took pics: i did not want to overwhelmed you (wink).
adorable bear and "beary smart" too. the outline on this bear is made to look fuzzy. i am so sorry i couldn't capture it with the paper piecing. if you go to the store to check it out, you will fall in love with all that is there. shelly is a very talented and creative lady and her digital  images are so nice and elaborate.
i hope i captured some of it in my project.

  2. This is super adorable, and pretty at the same time. You did a fab job with your book! I still think it is so funny that we were both making books at the same time. We must be in the same creative zone. I LOVE the glossy accents on the bears feet...and how you stamped the sentiment on his NB clever. LOVE it Agnes. Hugs:)
