Mailboxes Meet CPS!

I won this set off of Alli Miles blog... and it is her set, she designed it! The sentiments in this set are ridulous, they are so awesome! This set might even top my love of Mixed Messages! Anywho... my sister is going through a hard time right now and she lives about 5 hours away so I made her this! I used the most recent sketch from the ever awesome CPS and it is #78!

Schtuff... all Papertrey except the piece of random ribbon which came on something else and I saved it! and the little felt button is from Making Memories... I think! I also used my new copics and I know I am a hot mess with them! haha

So Sketchy Rocks Like Phil Collins!

So I received my first So Sketchy Newsletter just before I went on vacation and she had a secret sketch contest so her readers only and I whipped up this layout... with pretty much most of the stuff coming from Noel Mignon. She puts together a mean kit and has some pretty awesome sales.

The good news is I won! Awesome huh... and here is what I won! The most awesome card on Ally's site and some little stamps to play with! Best of all though I received a free month on the newsletter! Sa-weet!
