Stuck?! Sketches: September 1st Sketch, Reveal and Celebration!!

Hello, everyone! So happy you took the time to drop by! Can you believe September is already here? I usually love this month as it's often the start of good things. Everything seems to be able to be started with a clean slate in September. This year, for me, it means my return to work after a year's worth of maternity leave with my sweet Éloïse. YIKES! But, I am ready. I think... ;) Why not take my mind off of what's ahead with a bit of scrapbooking? That always helps! And a Stuck?! Sketches reveal on top of that?! Woo!Hoo!

The uber-talented Laura Whitaker sent us this awesome sketch to work with:

Nice, eh? And if this wasn't enough, Scrapmatts generously sent us tons of yummy products to play with! WOO!HOO! Here are the sets I used on my layout:

And here is what I created:

See the chipboard? Here are some closer looks:

Used tons of Glitz Design's Finnley on this layout (patterned paper, whatnots, giant rhinestones, washi tape, alphabets & words sticker sheet, and titles & accents sticker sheet). But wait! What's that I see? A piece of white Stampin' Up cardstock as my background! Be still my beating heart!! For those of you who know me, you know that this is very rare!! :) But I really do like the look it creates. Besides the Glitz and the Scrapmatts chipboard, I also used a Bazzill Basics circle stitching template with some DMC floss, some Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze, as well as a Tim Holtz stencil with some Distress Ink. This time, no buttons from an unknown source, but I did thread my chipboard banner pieces with some baker's twine I received as a gift ages ago. Manufacturer? No idea! ;) Oh! And just about those Making Memories staples. Love them!!

But wait! There's more!

Mm-mmm, that's right! It's been one year since Laura has taken on the wonderful Stuck?! Sketches blog and she is celebrating with TONS of prizes from some amazing sponsors. Curious, now? I would be, too! Here's the list of amazing prizes up for grabs for today's sketch over at Stuck?!:
