A Sad Goodbye!!

**Scroll down for an Announcement from earlier today.**

UGH!!  I cannot believe that this layout is for the final sketch challenge at Sketchy Thursdays!!  They were definitely one of those challenge Blogs, that I thought would be around for years to come!  But I definitely understand how busy Diana, Heidi, and Julie are these days.  I see that they are busy little bees all over the place!!  :)  I have so much enjoyed playing along with the challenges every week and have probably been participating for a year or  more.  It was so fun checking each Thursday morning to see the new sketch and find out if any of my friends had made the faves list...or maybe even me!!  :)

It has taken me a while to get to this one this week, but I definitely didn't plan to miss out on the very last challenge.  And I am very happy with the way my page turned out.  I used some of the last bits and pieces of my Emma's Shoppe collection from Crate Paper on this one.  I added a little distressing with a text stamp from Prima and then I just used my ink pad to make some messy marks around the edge of the page.

I would like to thank the Ladies at Sketchy Thursdays for their dedication over the past years and wish them well on all of their upcoming ventures!!  I know I will see their work in many other places!!
