Pion Design May Sketch Challenge

Happy Mother's Day Weekend!

Pion Design is having a fantastic sketch challenge (ending May 31st) and you could win an entire Pion collection. Here is my interpretation of the sketch, using the gorgeous new "For Mother" collection.

This is a picture of my boys sharing a snack while camping a few years ago. I just love the little toddler chairs - so cute! I used some new Dusty Attic chipboard pieces from my Etsy shop and kept the focus on the picture. I also used a script stamp with chalk ink on the "love" word (white flocked chipboard letters from the dollar store!) and really like the result.

The beautiful layout sketch was created by our DT coordinator, Ann Kristine. I really love the simplicity of this sketch as it allows for so many wonderful interpretations.

I hope you give this wonderful challenge a try and link your Pion Design project  at http://blog.piondesign.se. The sketch challenge ends May 31st. Good Luck!

If you are a card maker, then you may enter using this wonderful sketch:
