A Sketchy RetreatVille?

Some may think so, but here we have some wonderful RV Sketches to share with you all.  Being a part of RV means you get to do our special RV Sketch, and first up to share is the Creative Team, who all had their lovely creations on show all weekend.  Thanks again to the amazing Anita for her wonderful designs.
Me Time by Anita Bownds (CT)
I just love the colours in this Ezy Pzy Kit.  Anita has used coordinating Manor House flowers and spritz to work the colours in, and the spritz pattern drizzled over the background looks great.
Layering and a bit of doodliing adds definition, and a bit of bling never goes astray!  Doilies are just so versatile at the moment, and Anita has made great use of these.  Gorgeous work girlfriend!
2010 by Sally Clark (CT)
This is what I love about the Sketch Challenges, how different are these layouts?  Again, we have an Ezy Pzy kit used for Sally's layout, taking the work out of coordinating the patterns, colours and extras.  Tags are great on masculine layouts when you add a bit of "Bloke", whether it be the colours, distressing or texture.  The thickness and colour of the grosgrain ribbon works well, and a bit of frayed string works a treat on the tag.
Inking adds definition, as does the overlapping of layers.  A bit of stamping using texture stamps creates a bit of grunge.
Giving your punches a good workout with a bit of extra inking and layering can create different effects.  A simple way to do a title, a little tag with your stamped title - Ezy!  Well done Sally, a great one for the Boys.
Mason by Deb Pulford (CT)
Deb has used an Ezy Pzy Kit to do her Retreat Sketch.  Takes all the work out of thinking, the colours all work well together and there are some lovely Manor House flowers to add a little softness.  Looks great Deb.                            
Spring by Jennie Seal (Guest)
Jennie has taken advantage of her border punches, and tearing on the edges to give the layout a sense of depth.  The punched tag is a great way to decorate your journaling panel, and a few bits of bling and charms adds to the feminine feel of the layout.
Her fussy cutting is great, and looks fantastic layered and covered with Dimensional Magic.  The fine loopy punch layered beneath the ribbon trim balances out the colouring and look.
The border punched strips have really worked well with their colours, and the inked ribbon layered on top brings it all together to make a lovely layered effect beneath the photo.  The little dots of paper have been painstakingly adhered and covered in, yes, Dimensional Magic.  Beautifully done Jennie.

The Creative Team Girls have worked wonders with the Sketch, now here are some of the layouts the girls have completed over the weekend.
