Laura's Sketch #27 & the Ultimate Card Showdown

This weeks sponsor over at 2sketches4you is Zutter, so I decided to get my bind-it-all machine out, and make myself a cute sketchbook, using Laura's sketch #27 (this weeks sketch).  Since this book is for me, I used some of my favorite paper, ribbon and buttons.  This book just makes me happy.  Instead of putting regular cardstock on the inside, I dug through my daughter's math supplies and found graph paper, that I cut down to size to fill inside my book.  I have a few sketches in it so far, and having the graph paper makes it so easy to create.  The cover is chipboard b.i.a. covers from Theresa Collins, I covered the front using Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday designer paper.  
Now you do not want to miss playing along in this weeks sketch challenge, it is the kick off to the Ultimate Card Showdown and you do not want to miss this opportunity to win all of those fabulous prizes!  Head on over to the 2sketches4you blog to find out all of the important details.
