It's a SKETCH, Hop to it!

YSS is doing the blog hop thing this week, so make sure you visit all the girl's links at the bottom of this post!

Want a Blog Hop Challenge?
This month's GDT is Julie Bonner and here is the sketch that she made for us! 

Upload any layout to the YSS gallery using this sketch for a chance to win a prize pack and some Stash Cash!  Layout must be linked to the Monday (9/20) YSS blog POST  (click here) by Saturday 9/25 at midnight.  All winners will be announced on that blog!

And here is my take on it...
(A picture of me when I was 19, the day before what I still believe to be the beginning of the worst year of my life so far. This layout is to remind me that life is fragile, that in an instant things can change... but that if you don't get lost it in - you can make it through. And if you do get lost in it, God will pull you through if you let him.... I am so very blessed in my life right now, but I don't ever want to forget where I have been or that I made choices that I regret, because all those life decisions, consequences, and happenings made me who I am today. I am a different kind of happy than I was in this picture... because I went through things starting the day after.)

I used Bella Blvd papers, Maya Mist, and Prima Lace from the YSS store! (Other supplies, Tattered Angels Mist, molding paste, gesso, oil pastel, and embossing powder.) 

Today I will be giving away a CLIPA from the YSS store, everyone who leaves a comment on THIS POST before Saturday will be entered in the running to win it! What a cool thing this little gadget it... you can hang your purse or scrappy tote from dern near anything, keeping it from getting dirty. I can also think of a bunch of different crafty uses, can you?


Here are your links to visit this week... don't forget to leave a little love or a comment because you could be winning one of those coveted gift certificates from us, and we all have more than one in our scrappy hands!! Remember, I am the last stop so if you arrived here before checking out the other girls... go on back. :)
