SMC LO Challenge - National Poetry Sketch

This week is a bitter sweet challenge for us at SMC LO Challenge. We are ending the term so this could be my final SMC LO Challenge post...we'll have to see if I make the Term II Team.

Since this may be my last SMC Post let me say that I've enjoyed working with Sarah, Jeri and Angela so very much over this term. Everybody has been just wonderful and I know this challenge will continue in the true spirit of creative nurturing and encouragement of artistic exploration.

So, enough of that serious stuff...
Our challenge this week is to use the sketch below and to create a layout that reflects a poem that we are fond of, either in entirety, in title or what the meaning holds for us.

The Sketch

Now add this great little group of supplies which includes three die cuts and two double sided pieces of DP, from our sponsor Sarah's Supplies.

Now add my Sew Many Cards Digital Image and a pic of my dear sweet Bekah...shuffle around the sketch a bit and you get this:

Not only am I creating this wonderful work of paper crafting artistry {{giggling}} to the SMC LO DT line up I'm entering this little beauting into the following challenges:

TPE: Pastels
Cuttlebug Spot: Green/Pink/White/Black
