Just Us Girls #200

JUGS 200 photo JUGS200picA.jpg 

Welcome to Just Us Girls' 200th challenge!!  We are celebrating this week by giving the Chic of the week a $15 gift certificate to Inspired By Stamping.


This week Maria has provided a sketch for us to work which provides lots of creative flexibility.

I used some papers from The Sweetest Thing paper pad by Recollections and when I saw this ledger paper, I just had to create a notebook page for the sentiment panel.

I combined two of the sentiments from Verve's Words of Wisdom set and added an arrow at the bottom in lieu of the sentiment panel on the sketch. 

The rest of the  JUGS team has some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog, and check out what the Design Team has created.  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card/project to the challenge post on the JUGS blog for the chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week.  

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
