Quiet Valley

 Hey there, hi there!
 We have a special treat today and another hop for Stuck on U Sketches...this time with the great Whimsical Wednesday blog! I had the pleasure of being on the team some time ago...very fun! So I'm glad to be doing a hop with them this time around!

 We are also lucky enough to have some sponsors for the hop Prairie Bird Boutique, you'll receive some gorgeous crinkle ribbon and from SK digi's a shopping voucher for the store! Cool, right? Thanks so much for those awesome prizes ladies!

 On the hop you should be coming from Sandi's blog? In the right place? If not, the hop list will be at the bottom of the post...hopefully you are on track since our hop just started! LOL!

 You'll find the sketch at SOUS (where the hop is beginning) so check that out over there...otherwise let's get to my page! 





 This was from a year ago when my hubby and I got a glorious couple nights away to beautiful Yosemite. There was pretty much not a soul there and though it was cold, there wasn't snow and therefore not too bad. We got a hike in and even had some snuggle time along the river...it was one of the most peaceful trips I've ever had...

 Here are the goodies I used...

Papers~
Bo Bunny Forever Fall
Echo Park Times & Seasons
Ink~
Distress Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Forest Moss
Paint daubers in brown and white
Stickers~
Echo Park Times & Seasons
Embellies~
Canvas Corp, canvas and cork
Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die
twine
Tim Holtz tiny attacher and memo pin, washi tape
brads, Recollections leaves

 Ok, let's get you folks moving, thanks for coming by. I'd super love to have you follow me if you like! ;)

 Next stop on the hop is the always fabulous Nanne
