RS #22

It is 1 hour and 7 minutes to the post deadline and way past my bedtime, but here is my RetroSketch for this week.   A really fun and easy to work with sketch based on THIS card by Arielle.  

We have a long weekend in Canada this weekend so I am packing up and heading to the cottage for the annual family reunion.  Both of my kids are heading to Quebec next week, my son to Sherbrooke for rugby nationals and my daughter to Mt. Tremblant for a holiday with her friends family.  Its going to be quiet around here, I see a card making week ahead of me.  I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

Cardstock: White
Patterned Paper:  Bright Side (Lawn Fawn)
Stamps: Floral Foliage, Flower Fusion #9
