Hey all I'm back with last week's winner and this week's sketch!

The winner of the Pebbles kraft letter stickers and envelopes is....Becky! My random number generator came up with 3 and she was the third post. I'll be having more giveaways in the near future! Thanks everyone for playing! Becky, shoot me an email with your mailing address and I'll get these in the mail to you ASAP. :)

Now for this week's sketch! Again, I am sometimes technologically defunct, so I drew a picture of the sketch, snapped a picture, sent it to Lisa, and she whipped up the digital version in 2.3 seconds because she's a rockstar like that!

Lisa's face finally makes its debut in my sketch layout this week! She was here over Christmas and New Year's and we took a few days to travel to Houston, Galveston, and Austin as a little road trip. We had a really nice time. We stopped in Salado on the way back from Austin, which is a quaint little touristy town with lots of shops featuring clothing I would never in a million years wear as it's completely NOT me, but we had a fun time walking along and stopping in the occasional store. They even have a fun little stamp store, which was an excellent diversion!

I got to use a lot of October Afternoon's Sasparilla Collection and some of the brand new Miss Caroline papers from My Mind's Eye. I think this is one of my favorite layouts ever. Just love how it turned out!

Supplies: patterned paper - October Afternoon, My Mind's Eye, paper embellishments - October Afternoon; letter stickers - Pebbles; twine - My Mind's Eye; tab punch - Jenni Bowlin; border punch - docrafts Xcut; other - bottle cap embellishment, vintage card (both from Studio Calico kits)

Round My Hometown by Lisa Carroll
This is Lisa's take on the sketch! She made all the papers herself. Marisa Lerin gets credit for the button and the stitching.

My lady is freakishly talented.

I'll be back later tonight or early tomorrow with my Graphic 45 DT audition post! Please check back and leave me some love! I'm super nerve!

Thanks for reading and commenting!
