Celebrate with Pencil Lines

Pencil Lines is celebrating their 4th birthday. This is a great feat for any challenge site. I want to extend my congratulations to Anna and her team. What fabulous inspiration every week!!! On Sunday, they reveal a DT and their choice of sketch every hour. I have to say i was stalking their blog. Such gorgeous inspiration. I want to jump in and do some serious scrapping this week. These are 2 i did..... all with 2 hours. Why I love sketches: 1) They do most of the work for me. 70% done.. I just add 10% colors (choice of pp), 10% embellishments and 10% wendy's touches like distressing or inking or misting!!! I like to do such scrapping quick and fast esp when I know I have lots to scrap 2) I like that I can add or delete elements........ so cool, right! I didn't know about this till I got a sketch book. 3) I like to see different interpretation of the same sketch. It is like friends buying the same blouse and let's see what accessories you will wear it with. I love such mystery and reveals. Anyway, said too much.. :) Sketch by Anna My take "Sweet" Sketch 148 My take "Blessings"....... Hope this has inspire you to join in! See you soon with my next few sets of sketches I want to take part in. Now, I want you to guess how many sketches will I complete by 23 Oct. I will send a person with a RAK (full of seam binding) if you can guess the correct number of sketches i will use from Pencil Lines. Just to give you a clue: NOw i have completed the 2 above, I am finishing 1 on the way. Hmm..... how many in total will I participate in? I dont know too....... I am just scrapping as I go this week. How fun!!!!

These are just SO adorable, Wendy! And I'm with you...I'm a sketch girl, too. Love them and love seeing how each person who does the sketch has a different take. Your take on both is fabulous. Already drooled all over the WonderFall page, so now I can add more to the Sweets page. :)
And how fun that you are having a guessing game. If you're working on #3........I'll guess that you get 6 done.
