Mojo Monday Challenge 68

I'm loving getting into these challenges!  Might end up being difficult once school starts and the regular routine of after school activities etc commences, but for the next few weeks, I'll be having fun!

This is a fun Sketch Challenge by Julee Tilman at Mojo Monday Sketch Blog.  My first entry!  I lurk here often as it is a great source of inspiration if you are feeling a little stuck or bored with the way you are doing your cards.  Why not give it a go yourself?

Here is the sketch:

Here's my attempt:



I was also hunting around for ideas using the Carousel Notes from the new Summer Mini, and I came across Cambria Turnbow's tutorial at Stamp A Little Love Baby (is that a great blog name or what?).    I CASE'd Cambria's little Carousel Note Handbag (made by using the Carousel Note envelope as a Bagalope - genius!), and here is my version:

Not sure I'd do it exactly this way again - I found cutting around all the scallops on the DSP tedious.  I know some people find cutting out really enjoyable; me? Not so much.   However, even with the whining I must say the results look great!
