Hello Springtime - A Lily Bee Sketch and Layout

Today on the Lily Bee blog, I have a sketch challenge.  I have been using the Skitch App to doodle some quick sketches lately, even for myself.  It has helped me get projects done faster and plan a little.  I am joined by the very talented Wendy Sue Anderson and Diana Fisher with their interpretations of the sketch, so head on over to the Lily Bee blog to see and enter the challenge for a chance to win.
My take on the sketch.  I took pictures of some new items for the start of the season.  Those rain boots are part of Emma's Easter surprise.
 My favorite technique lately is masking.  Either with ink, mist, or paste...really anyway!  For this layout I used one of the new Crafter's Workshop stencil.  You can pick one here from Paper Issues.  Use code PATRICIA to get 20% off.
I fussy cut the Cartwheel pattern paper and layered the pinwheels on top of each other for the circles.
 Added some handstitching and a few drops of mist.
Lily Bee always has the best patterns. Not too big and work so well together.  Hope you get to enter the challenge.  Keep checking and following the Lily Bee blog to enter more challenges.
