Just Us Girls #31 Sketch....{A+++ Teacher!}

Hey y'all!  It's saturday and time for a new challenge with Just Us Girls...a SKETCH challenge!  Don't you love a great sketch?  Well our dear Maria has worked up a dilly for us this week.  I think you are gonna love it.  The shapes and placement really provide a wonderful foundation for the use of all kinds of images and supplies.  Starting with the center image circle I was inspired to get my apple on and get ready for some end of year thank yous for my daughters' wonderful teachers. 

I pulled out this great stamp from the retired SU! set called Fresh Fruits for the main image and called on October Afternoon for some great apple printed DP.  and *shhhhhhhh* but I raided my kindergartener's desk supplies for a piece of writing practice paper.  It made for the perfect background DP.

I was all done with my card and ready to photograph it and thought to myself "self, you need a little sparkle today"  So I added red stickles to the apple  just to satisfy my need for glitter! Ahhh, just right!

Do you know who else has gotten it just right?  The JUGs girls for sure!  This week have two guest designers and we are so honored to have them.  Be sure and check out all of their project details on the blog links below.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I can't wait to see what you make with Maria's sketch this week!  Be sure and link us up on the Just Us Girls blog OK?  And, one more bit of Just Us Girls news....we are searching for the next JUGs Design Team member.  If you could be the one please run on over to THIS post for the details. Have a good one!
