Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 with a "TWIST"

Welcome to another Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge!!  First of all I have to start out with an apology...  we are getting a bit of a late start today and it's all my fault...  I was lending a hand with my Grandson, and due to a couple of mis-postings...  I ended up deleting the wonderful Post that was all prepared by Sharon of our Design Team.  I am so sorry Sharon!!!  It really was wonderful and I know that I will not do this week's Post any justice as I have only slept about one hour...  but I shall give it a go...

First of all, I'll introduce you to the reason for my blunder...  my sweet Grandson William born last Friday - I'm in love!!

Before I fill you in on this week's Twist, let me announce the winners from last week's challenge.

First up, our grand prize winner is...

On with our Challenge.... once again Welcome!!  This week we are not having our typical Challenge.  The last Wednesday of each month we are trying something new and adding a TWIST to our Challenge.  You can use any one of our previous Sketches (which can be found by opening the "Previous Sketches" tab at the top of the page), just please let us know which Sketch you have chosen...  and then we will add a TWIST each month.  This month's Twist it to use Paper Piecing!!

Our Sponsor is Sami of Sami Stamps.  Some of you may know Sami is the younger sister of Tammy of A Day for Daisies.  There is definitely some talent in theses genes!!  Here are a few words from Sami...
