Here is Jacqui on her 22nd birthday, with her grandfather, Ron Pennington. Paper is by Imaginisce, embellishments by K & Company. Sketch by Laura Buckingham on the Pencillines blog. This paper, embellishments and these photos just sat in my stash for the longest time – then the right combination came along with the sketch, and well, it just all comes together and you know why it all remained waiting for you to begin !!!!
Here is my take on Laura’s sketch:

Well, I didn’t win the guest designer spot on Sketchy Thursdays, but I am sure that Heather is thrilled to be December’s winner of that coveted position. She and the other girls did great work. All the Sketchy Thursdays girls’ contests are fun to play along with.
In the post below you will see the sketch that Diana and Heidi and their design team had for this past week to play along with, and as usual I played along. I guess they love the colour purple too, because I got a perk of finding out this morning that my layout was chosen as one of their faves this week. That is always a bit of a thrill. You can find their post with my layout here.
You should play along too, it is always fun and challenging!!! Being stretched creatively is always good and you might make a new friend!!
Here is this week’s awesome Sketchy Thursday sketch:
Here is our son Chris Pennington and daughter Mary Pennington dyeing Chris’ hair purple last week. They had a blast, and I did too because they let me take pictures of them together. Usually this is not allowed!
Here is my take on it using some Bo Bunny stuff (including the purple swirls), and other items from my stash. I am liking the Pearl Ranger Adirondack Metallics Acrylic Paint Dabber – didn’t realize that it would dry with such an iridescent shine, but I wanted the purple lettering to stand out against the dark background of the paper. Liking the iridescence!!!!

Sketchy Thursdays has a guest design team member contest for December closing in a few minutes. Here is their sketch:
They ask that at least 5 photos are used and some sparkle. I have more than 5 photos, have used sparkle paper for the pennants, and some glimmer mist on the background. The pearls on the pennants might even qualify as sparkle. Paper used is American Crafts Dear Lizzy Spring Sunny Spot and Spring Growing Green. Clouds are Bo Bunny Sun Kissed Skies. Girls in photo are Stephanie Pennington and Brynn Zwanenburg, my daughter and granddaughter. Who could go wrong combining Dear Lizzy and my girls????
