..:: sketchy saturday ::..

It's that time again -- ready for some inspiration? September's Sketchy Saturday inspiration comes from a layout designed by  Lisa Dickinson for Elle's Studio.

The basic design of this is genius, and Lisa knows how to put all those perfect touches together.  Don't you dig the stitching? Gah! I love it! Also, genius to alter that card so it worked for the photo!

Here it is, the September Sketchy Saturday Sketch inspired by Lisa's layout:

When members of the Paper Issues Design Team saw Lisa's layout and the sketch they were super excited to cut pretty papers and glue 'em down. Check out all the impressive inspiration they came up with!

Leah L'Orange's photo is super sweet, no? I completely heart it.  I also love her Webster's Pages + We Are Memory Keepers acetates combo!

Becky Monmaney snuggled up with one of my favorite Simple Stories collections - Summer Vibes, and turned out this fab layout (don't you just love that woodgrain?)!

OMG.  Isn't the Baxter collection completely rad -- especially with these fur baby photos??? Kathy Skou rocked this sketch, yo!

Speaking of rad....Orange Gearle (that's me!) grabbed some Simple Stories So Rad collection because those little die cut Space Invaders guys totally fit with this gamerz theme.

So now it's your turn. You've seen Lisa's inspiration piece.  You've seen the sketch. Hopefully, your creative juices have been whet with help from the DT, are you ready?  Would you maybe like to win a little something, too?
