Getting Crafty With the Go-To Girls!!!

Hey everyone! I am SUPER excited today because I get to share a project I made using a fun sketch from the new Go-To Sketches publication! And... I'm not alone! Several of my crafty friends have gotten together to inspire you as well.

Have you had a chance to see the new issue up close and personal? If not, today could be your lucky day! Paper Crafts is giving away THREE of these awesome magazines! All you have to do is leave a comment. Keep reading to find out more!

I was asked to join in the fun by one of the Go-To Girls herself - Maren!!! :) If you've ever picked up a paper crafting magazine, there's a good chance you've 'oohed' & 'ahhed' over Maren's work. She's amazing! (... and as sweet as she can be, I have to add!) Here is the sketch Maren sent us:
And... here is what I came up with:


I've been dying to try out these fun little Free Standing Pop Up Cards that I discovered on Splitcoast Stampers! They are so easy to make & can fold flat for mailing!

If you would like to have a chance at winning one of the new Go-To Sketches publications, leave a comment on my blog, as well as on each of the following links. The more times you comment, the better your odds of winning! :) You can also leave a comment on the Paper Crafts Connection blog for an additional chance.

Here are links to the other Go-To Girls' blogs! Each of them have a fun sketch to inspire you... and have chosen several friends to play along as well. :)
