I'm So Proud of You
How did it get to be Saturday already? I'm looking forward to the long holiday weekend, and want to wish my American readers a Happy Memorial Day weekend! If you're planning to fit some stamping time in, Jen's Sketch For You to Try is a great place to start. I love the vertical strips of paper on this one - great way to use some scraps.
Here's another look at Verve's new Up, Up and Away and Dare to Be You, which were both released last night. I'll say it again - I love these two sets!! (By the way, Verve is having a Memorial Day sale through My 31 - save 10%-20% on everything.) I used some Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday papers to create this kind of funky look. I realize I broke a "Jody rule" by mixing my white and ivory. I'm thinking it's one of those times where if you break the rule bad enough, you get to call it art - LOL! The glittered balloon looks a bit washed out in the photo, but in real life it's nice and vivid and sparkly.
Hope you'll play along with us! For inspiration, be sure to check out samples from the SFYTT gang:

When you're ready to play, use Mr. Linky to hook up your creation to Jen's post, and if you upload to SCS, use keyword: SFYTT.
Thanks for stopping by!
