Last day of the contest!

Today is the official last day of the contest that you can view HERE ... make sure you get your entries posted by 9PM my time (Pacific).
And now, th
e weekly
sketch... :) I was going to post some of the layouts I did for the DT call, but I really liked
this one I did last nig
ht and thought I would share this one instead.

For the layout I did to accompany it, I used some papers from Me & My Big Ideas (Totally loving the flocked sha
ped paper from them), Rita Marie & Co. (The striped stuff) and Die Cuts With a View's newest Stack (I think it's #6). I fussy cut out the boy and dog from some Sassafras and the pawprint hearts are also from the Stack. The round number sticker is
also Sassafras and the "Big Dog" sticker is from
K&Co. And fi
nally, all the yummy chipboard :D. The Black piece is from Scenic Route, the G
reen piece is from Colorbok and the title is from Heidi Swapp. I have no idea where the ribbon is from, but I picked up the burlap ribbon a couple years ago on clearance after Christmas at JoAnn's.

Enabler Alert!!!!
As you know, I try to be as thrifty as I can... I usually buy things on sale/ clearance or try to win them somehow. And you also know how much I LOVE my Sassafras... well, dear readers, Michael's has a rocking clearance sale going on and yours truely picked up a pad of both the Sassafras Hog Heaven line and Whale of a Tale line (complete with patterned papers, monograms & cardstock stickers) for $9.99 a piece. I was tempted to get more, but House of Paper just got the Yummy new line "Me Likey" in stock and I just had to snag that up just for my summer pics! And before anyone else got to it.

Speaking of House of Paper, Chiara also has some other great sales going on, so stop buy and do some shopping!
