Sketch Challenge with OA...

Popping in quickly to share my sketch challenge layout for THIS post over at October Afternoon.

This year for Father's Day, the girls set up an old-west saloon theme for their Daddy, complete with costumes, a distressed sign, and country accents.

At first glance, you might not see the resemblance to the sketch, but I promise it started out as the inspiration, lol!

I started with a linear photo/embellishment block, but then I found this star paper with a big circle already cut out, and knew I wanted to use it on the layout.  So my photo/embellishment grid morphed to fit this new shape, and I love how it turned out.

Y'all come back now, ya hear?! :)
