Cheep Cheep

Happy Saturday! I've had Stampin' Up's adorable Cheep Talk set my possession for months, but this is the first time I've used it -- such a fun set to work with! Today's layout comes from Jen's Sketch For You To Try. I took a few liberties with the sketch and changed one of the rectangle panels to a rectangle-shaped grouping of stars, branch, and bird, but I think you'll still see the sketch foundations there. Check out what all the SFYTT gang has put together this week:

Jen del Muro and guest designer Kimberly Crawford
Amy Rohl
Carole Burrage
Kelly Lunceford
Susan Liles

To play along, use Mr. Linky to add your creation over on Jen's blog. If you upload to SCS, use keyword: SFYTT.

I'm keeping it short today so I can get back to my family and the grandparents who are visiting this weekend to help us celebrate my youngest's second birthday. Whew - where does the time go??

How about a proud mama moment? (I haven't done one of those in a while)

Stamps: Cheep Talk (Stampin' Up)
Paper: Papertrey Kraft, SU Kiwi Kiss, My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow "Bloom" collection
Ink: SU Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, White craft
Accessories: SU button and ribbon, large and small star punches, and paper piercer; burlap string

Your cards always look so professional. Not all handmade. I love your technigue. Have a beautiful, God Blessed weekend.

What an adorable, sweet and innocent 2 year old! Yes, time does fly and it's good to be reminded to stop and smell the roses!

Love the liberties you took with the sketch--just perfectly balanced! Love the background stars and the branch and tweety bird!

The card is fabulous, the picture of your child . . . PRICELESS! Whenever you need a babysitter, just send that little one down to me. Hold him tight Amy, the time will go faster than you want it to. I'm leaving Friday for Nashville to pick up my baby and bring him home for the summer.
