I participated in my first challenges ever this month.
This entry was for Little Scraps of Heaven sketch challenge. There was a sketch provided and one week to complete the entry. The only requirement (above and beyond the sketch) was to use a Little Scraps of Heaven paper piecing item. They have some of the cutest designs ever there ... if you haven't already, you should check them out (LittleScrapsOfHeavenDesigns.com).
I did not win the challenge, however this layout was chosen to be a featured layout in their weekly newsletter. Hooray! I can not explain how excited I was about this. I can not remember the last thing that I actually won!
