I {love} you

It's great when I have some unexpected free time to get my craft on. After a whirlwind weekend of traveling back and forth and back and forth across the state of Colorado {literally} over the weekend, it was so nice to come home and dive into my scrapbooking supplies for my take on the September guest DT challenge at Sketchy Thursdays. (P.S. The prize for the incredible double-page sketch this week is a gift certificate to Lucky Girl Crafts - go play!!!)

Papers: Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye (green distressed circle paper), stash (black distressed paper)
Embellies: Anna Griffin - glittered letter chipboard; Basic Grey - rub-ons, chipboard "you" letters; Petaloo - green flower; Jenni Bowlin - white button, butterfly; American Crafts -gel pen, pearl brad; Zva Creative - bling flourish; Close To My Heart: ink; pink glitter brad; stash - flowers, bling brad
I came across some way-old patterned paper (Basic Grey for the large pink & green patterned paper and some random distressed black patterned paper) and a Basic Grey Sugar Rush card kit for my primary pieces. The card kit contributed the green polkadot paper, the pink scalloped paper (both of which were card bases), the cardstock "you" and the rub ons. Gotta love when you find new uses for supplies totally meant for something else. I added a fun assortment of bright flowers and some bling swirls and I'm jazzed with how it came out! Cross your fingers - maybe I'll be one of the ones to vote on later this week...
In other totally random, awesome news, I also got a great e-mail from the super sweet Trisha today at Sketch Inspiration. She was hosting an Inspire{me} contest not so long ago, and asked for original layouts not based on any other sketch to inspire a new sketch for her challenge site. Guess what! I won! I am so honored to be one of the three lucky girls she's chosen. Woohoo!
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a blessed week.
