Happy Saturday! Assuming all goes according to plan, by the time this posts, I'll be well on my way to enjoying my Saturday with nine giggly 6-year-old girls at our region's Girl Scout Encampment. (That's not counting the other 350 adults and girls that we'll join once we get there.) Among other things, the girls will get to do a letterboxing trail, a trailblazing/orienteering try-it, a flowerbed beautification service project, games, and a swap (I know all about swapping - teehehe). Should be fun!
And the good thing is I won't have much access to email or my blog, so I won't get to hear you beg mercy after today's card permanently sears your eyeballs! It's bright, I know (and the nighttime photo is horrid), but I am *really* loving Cosmo Cricket's DeLovely collection (maybe precisely because it is so not my typical color palette?) and wasn't ready to put it away after Thursday's card.
I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try ...
I knew if I rotated the sketch, those three circles would move to the bottom and become perfect places for some hanging coffee cups from Impression Obsession's Coffee With a Friend set. For the focal point rectangle, I chose to frame a Coffee with A Friend sentiment with one of Pink Paislee's Artisan Elements Frames. Once again, I left the frame white. Next time I promise you I'm going to alter one with ink or mists - so many neat things you can do with these! The embellishment (heart) rotated to the upper left, where I was glad to place a bow/flower/button/leaf trinket pin stack. The crinkly bow is made with some white seam binding that I sprayed with Lime Metallic Maya Mist. The coffee cups are paper pieced with various DeLovely patterns.
Be sure to visit the rest of the SFYTT gang for a heavy dose of sketch inspiration:
Jen del Muro with guest designer Iwona Palamountain
To play along, upload your creation to the slideshow on Jen's blog that corresponds to the sketch you've used. Remember, future guest designers are chosen from sketch participants!
That's it for me today. Tomorrow, I'm heading to my local stamp store for a guaranteed injection of high-octane mojo - I'm taking a class with the Claudine Hellmuth. Can't wait!
One housekeeping item before I go - I've had to turn word verification back on due to increasing amounts of spam. So sorry for the inconvenience!
Have a great weekend, friends!
