Bugaboo Sweet Sketch Wednesdays 2 Sketch 29


Some MI fall inspiration that I found on the WWW. 



Hello my fellow crafters and Welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesdays 2 and Happy October 1st! .  It is Heide here from Michigan and I am your hostess this week here at SSW2. We are happy to have you join us this week. This week our wonderfully talented sponsor is   Jodie Mackrell, from the always fun company Bugaboo. 
If you are new to Sweet Sketch Wednesdays 2 a BIG welcome to you and we are looking forward to see your creations and for those that are returning we are always happy to see you here at Sweet Sketch Wednesdays 2 and love to see what you do with the sketch. Do not forget to become a follower to our little blog here,  we will be having another drawing once we reach 200 followers.

Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo.
This weeks winner will recieve 7 free digis from Jodie's store. 

BIO: Everything that you ever wanted to know about Bugaboo Stamps:  As if raising 5 children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the work of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. Bugaboo Stamps has become one of the leading companies in digital images. From seiously snarky to sugar sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!!  If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps at Totally Stampilicious.  And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for the weekly Challenges at Catch the Bug.
