So Totally Me

I love taking a sketch and making it my own.  And that's exactly what I did with this week's sketch at Let's Get Sketchy.  
I used the brand spankin' new BasicGrey Hipster Collection to create this one.
I loved the line so much I purchased the wood veneer embellishment package as well as one of the sticker sheets. 
I fussy cut some of the flowers from one of the sheets of paper and layered them one atop the other for a better cluster look.  I also stitched my banner together placing a few My Mind's Eye enamel dots in the tiny spaces.

The photo is a selfie I took on the first really cool day of Fall.  I pulled out my comfy sweater and my hat, and spent the day in my craft room, ignoring the cold.  Journaling reads "Kinda love the first cool day when I can pull out the comfy sweater and hat".

And this is what the original sketch looked like. 
You can see that there are definitely similarities between the two, but it's not an exact replica.  To see how the other designers used the sketch, and link up your own take for a chance at this month's sponsored prize hop over here.

And in case you missed it.  I offered up some freebie Cameo files yesterday.  You can grab yours here.

Have a wonderful Monday, and Happy Memorial Day to all my US readers.  May you spend the day enjoying the freedom that was so hard won for you. Pin It
