Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday Everyone!

Hello and  a huge Thank you for visiting us this week, I know you are going to have fun playing and creating with this week's sketch 106.

Our sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique, Sally Ann is a monthly sponsor for us, and we just love her digi stamps! Sally Ann is offering the winner this week 6 of her adorable images of the winner's choice!

Jacki here, posting this week for you, as well as continuing on with sharing a little bit of where each of us from the design team members live. I am posting from the Bluegrass State of Kentucky, where I have lived for the past 20 years.

As some may know Kentucky is well known for it's beautiful rolling hills of bluegrass and horses.

Horse racing in Kentucky is rich in history, dating back to 1789 when the first race course was laid out in Lexington. However, it was almost 100 years later, in 1875, that Churchill Downs officially opened and began its tradition as "Home of the Kentucky Derby.

The Kentucky Derby is a Grade I stakes race for three-year-old Thoroughbred horses, held annually in Louisville, Kentucky at Churchill Downs

Another big event at the Kentucky Derby is the Derby Hats
The Kentucky Derby and its sister event, the Kentucky Oaks, are the only sporting events that are also fashion events.Derby attendees spend as much time and money on their race-day apparel as they do at the betting window -- maybe more

Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, Imagine a wall of water falling 60 feet!
 Cumberland Falls is a hiker's paradise, with 20 miles of hiking trails that wind through the Park to scenic areas, along with fantastic fishing and camping

Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory
Home to the Louisville Slugger Bat!

I live about a 45 minute drive to Louisville and within 10 miles of the Ohio River that connects Kentucky with Ohio
