Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #16

It's time for another Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and WOW ... CHECK THIS OUT ... how surprised was I to be honored with this Royal Loyal Award for participating in every sketch from the start of this AMAZING Challenge Blog!! If you haven't been over to "Priscillastyles", you are REALLY MISSING IT!!!!! Every week there are more & more giveaways & prizes & challenges & awards ... WOW ... there is SO much going on you have to really pay attention NOT to miss anything ... REALLY ... IT's AWESOME!

Moving on ....
My card for this week's sketch is a little out of the ordinary for me. As most of you know, my children are grown and even my grandchildren aren't "little" anymore but all the excitement in the neighborhood about school starting this week had me inspired to create using this adorable Crafty Secrets Childhood Booklet image. The number & pencils paper used in the background panels had no markings on it as far as manufacturer (sorry) but were very appropriate none the less!! Here are the details on this creation:
Stamps: None
Papers: Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Real Red, Basic Black, Crushed Curry
Inks: None
Accessories: Crafty Secrets Childhood Booklet image, Paper Piercer/template, Crayola crayons, Large Primary Buttons, Colorbok metal dots, Darice ribbon

Thanks for stopping by today!! Don't forget to stop back tomorrow for Penny's Challenge #4! As well as the Color Throwdown and SCS Sketch Challenges. I know ... I'm obsessed with challenges ... can't get enough of them!! LOL !! Hope to see you then!
