A Die for a Sketch Challenge and Blog Hop

Good morning,

Today I am thrilled to help celebrate the first anniversary of A Die for a Sketch Challenge.  My friend Judy who is one of the design team members was asked by Dunja the owner of the challenge if I would be a guest designer for this week to help them celebrate.  Well it took me about 2 seconds to say yes.  I am just thrilled and honored that they would even ask me.

For their challenge the rules are very simple, follow a Sketch that they provide for inspiration and use at lease one die cut.

Here is the sketch for this week

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
