Sketch 56: Layouts & {Elle's Studio}!!

Happy Friday! We have some fun for you this week along with a bit of sad news. First for the sad news. Our amazing and original TTS designer, Ember, is leaving us. Ember has some wonderful mission opportunities coming up, and she also will have more time to spend with her family, thus she will be stepping down. I have loved having Ember on the team. Her creations have been beyond spectacular, and I was even able to meet in person. What a great and special person she is! Thank you, Ember, for all you have done to support TTS and to help me over the past year. You are a blessing, and we will miss you!

Next, Elle's Studio has very generously donated a prize pack that one lucky subscriber is eligible to win this week! Elle's Studio has calendar and date tags, journaling tags, stamps, recipe cards, baby tags, and much, much more! I have several of her products, and I love them!! Be sure and visit the store! Here is the prize pack:Yummy, huh? :) What do you need to do to get entered to win? You need to create something (a layout, card, tag, altered item) with this week's sketch, Sketch 56, and post a link to your creation in the comment of this post by Thursday, May 14th, at 11:59 p.m. CST. One lucky, randomly chosen winner will be announced on Friday, May 15th!

Loving Sketch 56! I used it in a double page spread by flipping it for the left hand side and keeping it in its original form on the right. Clear as mud - right? You can check it out on my blog at

Thanks for looking!
