October SFYTT

It's October, and that means it's time for a new SFYTT!!!!  Our sponsor this month is Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I was really excited to finally get my hands on some of their stamps!

Here is the sketch for this month:

and here is what I did with it:
I used the teardrop shape from Teeny Trees to make a half flower as my focal point.  I added a button as the flower center, some woodgrain background, and a polka-dot embossed kraft panel.

1. The SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY {SFYTT} will be posted on the first Saturday of each month on at 8am EST and will stay open to participants until the last day of the month, unless otherwise noted.
2. This is for fun! Interpret the sketch as you wish and embellish as desired. There are no vendor restrictions, but we would love to see you use the sponsor’s stamps!
3. Each month we will have a Designer of the Month that will be chosen from past month’s participants.
4. Come and play with us on each and every sketch! On Christmas Day 2011 a prize package worth over $200 will be given away to one very lucky and loyal SFYTT stamper that participates in EVERY sketch for the year.
5. To be eligible for the prize package, you must complete ALL of the sketches by each of the deadlines AND link your creation to the link system on that month’s sketch post (the first Saturday of the month). Everyone except for SFYTT Sisters are eligible for the prize package, including Designer of the Month and international players.
6. When posting your sketch creation on your blog, please post the sketch and link back to the sketch post on When posting to online galleries, please use the keyword “SFYTT.”

Thanks for stopping by!
