ATS sketchiness

Hey there!

So what did ya think of Glee last night? I was happy to have a bit more Kurt time and the duet between Rachel and Blaine was better than the original version of that song, in my opinion, but overall not on my top top five episodes list. C'est la vie... too bad we have to wait two weeks for a new one though!

Anywho... this week Rachel has provided us with a great sketch over on the ATS challenge. Something about it had me reaching for a mermaid and Current Ebbtide was the one who ended up swimming onto my card. Considering it snowed again, yes I said snow, it may be a little premature to be dreaming of warm sunshine and splashing in the water but I couldn't resist her charms. ;)

Now it's your turn to take on this sketch and get in on the fun. Remember, every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win, your project must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!

Toodles!
