September Sketch Winner at Pixie Dust Paperie!! {Plus some October Challenge Links}

Woo Hoo to me!!

I was so excited to see that I had won the sketch challenge over at Pixie Dust Paperie with this simple layout.

They sell some beautiful kits there as well as all kinds of "pretty" stuff {and you know me & my pretties!}

I won a $15 voucher for their online shop & can't wait to spend it {and more knowing me...}

I was SO ENCOURAGED to try to find the time to participate in a few more challenges every month,
over & above my Design Team work.
