Here is how I used this week's Sketch and my Design Team Creation:

The project is a 7x7 chipboard mini album page. I used Webster's pages Wonderfall collection papers. Lots of fussy cutting. I accented the papers and some of the flowers by painting some Lindy's stamp gang Tibetan Poppy Teal starburst stain .
The Image I chose was SwingLeah from Whimsie Doodles.
A few close-ups on the image and the photo pull-out tag with my youngest daughter's picture.

One of the Greatest joys of staying at home with my girls is it allows me time to do crafts but it's even better when my daughter creates with me. Here is a picture of Her card she made with the SwingLeah Image and the MMSC94 Sketch.
My daughter is 3 1/2 and she has gotten so good All I have to do is put a glue dot on the back and she puts it where she wants. She mimics most of what I do and catches on quick. I still have to put the image on straight for her but that's about it. She has her own drawer of goodies and picks out her own stuff.

Be sure to check out all the other fabulous Design team cards this week over at Priscilla's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Thanks for stopping By Have a Happy Crafty Day.

Dawn, you and your darling daughter have aced this one! Her little card is sooo cute, and I can tell she gets her artistic ability from her mommy! Your card is just gorgeous - that's the sweetest image, but the show stopper is that gorgeous pic of your daughter!

Dawn, this is such a stunning chipboard creation. I always love the Wester's pages even though I still have not tried them! Your image is so sweet and hanging perfectly from the tree branch! Beautifully done and what a sweet baby photo! Your daughter's card is precious and we know where she gets her talent from! Thanks for sharing both creations.

Wow! This is so beautiful! The tree branch that's trimmed and popped up is such a great touch. The flower corners are beautiful too! Tell your daughter that she did a wonderful job and that she's very talented.
