Dec/Jan Sketch Layouts

Hi Everyone, we are now on the downward run for the Monthly Sketch Challenge.  If you haven't got your in yet you still have a few days.  We have some more to share with you below.
 The Graduate by Debi Clark (CT)
Welcome Debi with your first layout for the Team! A beautiful photo for starters, with lovely soft colours to compliments. The flowers pick up the colours int he diecut, and I love the vine in black. Nice work Debi.
Happiness Is... by Rita Russello (Italy)
Welcome to 2013 Rita, looking forward to seeing more of your lovely work. I love Rita's big doily, how perfect is that for the sketch, and the pattern is great too. The clouds add just a little bit of whimsy, and the journaling is nicely blended at the bottom to tell the story without intrusion to the theme.
Your First Day at Kindy by Claire Apostoloff (CT)
Here's my last sketch layout...sob! I've used a combination of Little Yellow Bicycle, Echo Park and Authentique papers. I've used Washi tape to make some tabs under the photo and to frame the layout. I also did a bit of faux stitching along the edges of the paper to match the rub on arrows.
Another beautiful layout by Mrs Smith, I really am going to miss you!  Claire has flipped the sketch and used some nice shapes to layer on the photo corner.  I love the title, a great way to use up all those extra bits and pieces that you couldn't string a full title from, and the colour combination works so well.  Just lovely! xxx

Nice to see such beautiful work coming in for the start of 2013.  Time is ticking down though, so keep them coming to beat the Pumpkin!  Thanks girls.
