We were challenged to add a TREE to our design and I decided to think outside the box: I chose a favourite photo I'd been saving from my 2010 visit to Hollywood Studios at Disney World. I had not been back to Orlando during the Christmas season since I was 15 (so so long ago!) The addition of the Osbourne Family Christmas tree lights transformed an old favourite (Streets of America) to a magical wonderland. Did you know they blow "fake" snow in the air? So magical.
I began by painting watercolours on a large acrylic stamp and stamping along the top and in the lower left.
Our wonderful sponsor for this month is:
Creative Embellishments is a new family owned company that was created by Michael and Nicolle Kramer.

We are grateful for their sponsorship too.
I love this sketch and I hope you will play along this month. Please link up your layouts over at the Stuck?! blog the sidebar by December 29th, 2013 to be in the running for one of our prizes! All prizes will be drawn randomly using Random.org to pick a number.
When linking your layouts, please make sure it is linked to the specific post your layout is in, not your blog as a whole as it can be hard later in the month to find your layout, especially if you blog often. You can also link from any gallery including Facebook and Flickr.
Feel free to combine this sketch challenge with no more than one other non-sketch challenge, such as a colour challenge.
Until next time, keep doing what you love to do!
