September week 4 LGS

Happy Monday!  I am at home not feeling very well. I was away all weekend staying up late at Crop and Create Cornwall. I had a fabulous time. Met Becky Higgins, took classes with Vicky Boutin. They fed us far too well.  I was able to complete a 6 x 8 PL album and 2 Layouts.  But all the excitement caught up with me and I am exhausted.  
But enough about me here is the new sketch at LGS.   Created by sketch Designer Bev Code.
