Farewell to the TE Sketch Challenge

I’ve been dreading this announcement, but the time has come to say farewell to the TESC. When I began my blog several years ago I decided to start a weekly Cupcake Challenge to spread my love for cupcakes in papercrafting. When I launched Taylored Expressions in 2008, the cupcake challenge developed into the TE Sketch […]



TE Sketch Challenge #156

Good morning & Happy Friday!! With the way the Friday’s fell in March, it has actually been three weeks since our last sketch challenge and I’ve been going through withdrawals! *wink* So today I’m super excited to get back to the sketches with this fun one that Sankari designed! And here are the sketch requirements: […]



TE Sketch Challenge #155

Good morning & Happy Friday! Any exciting plans this weekend? It’s Jon’s birthday on Saturday so we’re dropping Madelyn off at his sister’s house and going on a date to a local steakhouse. As long as dinner ends with cheesecake Jon will be a happy camper! *wink* Does your weekend include any time to stamp? […]



TE Sketch Challenge #154

Good morning & Happy Friday! I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend! In fact, the only plans we have are for a trip to Target (one of my favorite places!) and I might even sneak in a massage appointment and finally use the gift certificate that Jon gave me for Christmas! And it would certainly […]



TE Sketch Challenge #153

Happy Friday! As I’m typing this out I’m fully aware that my New Year’s resolution to “Blog More” was not upheld this week. And it’s not that I don’t have projects to share! There’s nothing I can do about it now, but I do know that next week will be filled with inspiration and lots […]



TE Sketch Challenge #152

Hooray! It’s Friday… but not just any Friday… it’s the second Friday of the month which means it’s time for another TE Sketch Challenge! This sketch was designed by the fabulous Jen Shults and I LOVED using it! It may look like a lot of layers, but they came together quickly and easily… here it […]



We’re BACK!! TE Sketch Challenge #151

Good morning & Happy Friday! I’m running around frantically trying to get our little family packed for the flight to California tomorrow… our first big trip with an infant! The laundry still isn’t done and the bags still aren’t completely packed, but we will get there one way or another. I just hope we’re all […]



Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #150

Good morning & Happy Friday! It’s time for another sketch challenge and it’s a big one! I can hardly believe we’re at Sketch 150 already! I’ve been sharing some of my past favorites on Facebook this week and we also have a special prize drawing for cards entered into Sketch 150! I hope you all […]



Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #149

Good morning and Happy Friday! So are you getting ready for a spooky weekend? We have a Halloween party for the kiddos this afternoon and Madelyn is ready to put on the costume that I made for her! Then we have trick or treating on Sunday evening. And the best part is that the weather […]



Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #148

Good morning and Happy Friday! It’s almost time for another weekend! I’m not sure why that’s so exciting for me because all of the days just seem to run together into one. Half the time I’m not even sure if it’s one in the morning or one in the afternoon! *grin* But I did get […]
