Sketchy goodness

I had fun with this week's sketch challenge over at Design Dollies!  I pulled out some newish photographs (January 2011 - I just noticed I photographed the layout before I added the date) and teamed them with some older product, and I'm thrilled with the result!

This is also for:
# Our Creative Corner ~ Dont' throw that away!
# Basic Grey Challenges ~ Challenge 40 ~ Something Recycled

I used: Basic Grey papers ('Two Scoops' and 'Urban Couture' ranges) and mesh from an orange bag (!)  I first tried using recycled mesh last year for this layout and it's so much fun.  I also used:  MME chipboard diecut, AC vinyl Thickers

I've also joined in the March challenge at Blue Moon Scrapbooking.  It's my first time to play there, and I just loved the sketch by Julie Bonner:

I used:  Prima 'Annalee' papers, Glimmer Mist, Maya Road felt flower, Glitz Designs alpha stickers, scraps of:  MME and Cosmo Cricket papers.
