Sad News and a 'Best of'

I'm really sad about this.
I started joining in with Sketchy Thursdays back in the early days.
The sketches captured me straight away. They really inspired me.
I made an effort to join in and after a while got picked for the DT.
That was back in 2010.
I've been asked to stay on each term and have loved every month with this team.
I condsider Diana, Heidi, Julie and also Tessa to be friends.
Sadly it's time for Sketchy Thursdays to come to an end.
This is our last week.
Read more on the blog here and come and join us for our last week.



I used this weeks sketch to make a tribute to our Christmas Tree. Is it sad ti say that I really fell in love with our's this year?
For the first year ever I wasn't ready to take her down. She went up earlier than usual and came down later than usual. The needles still weren't falling when she came down. She was the perfect height, shape and size.






And here's the sketch.


I'm so grateful to Diana and Heidi for keeping me for so long on the team.
Thank you girls.
I have to say that some of my most favourite LO's ever have been made whilst on this team using the sketches as inspiration.

Here are some of them.

















Happy days xxx

I love your "Best of" idea. I should have done something like that! I'm really going to miss the team as well, but I am happy for all the connections I've made along the way :)

Lisa, thank you for your kind words. I have loved every moment of working with you on ST. Your pages inspired me to try paint, mists and to take a chance on out-of-the-box layouts. You've inspired me as much as ST has you.

I will miss working side by side with you, but I know I'll be here often to leave your wonderful pages a little (or a lot) of love.

I am so glad we "met" and am honored to be your friend. :)
