Yeah, it's Friday and I am so excited! My favorite day of the week!
Not that I can say that I'm kicking back and relaxing ... the agenda is "extra full" through the middle of July! Between work and family there is tons of extra stuff!! Most of it fun .. well, except for work =); a co-worker is taking a 2 week vacation! ... but lots to do!! This is just one of those years when we have weddings, showers, babies, graduations and a ton of birthdays mixed in. I love it all but I just wish I had more time to prepare. I've been under the weather for a few months now and that has put a major dent in the state of my preparedness! Hee-hee! But this weekend I am looking forward to a sweet baby shower ... how fun is that???? Can't wait!
Well, I suppose you came by to see my Stuck on U Sketches project not to hear my rambling! So, I'd best tell you about it! These 2 cute chicks in the photo are my sweet nieces Kimberly and Karen! Are they adorable or what? I snagged this photo off Facebook and I think this was taken at a crafty event they were attending. See? It's in the genes! And if you want to have some scrappy fun, let these two gals tag along! They will seriously liven up the party! They get so tickled they forget what they're laughing about!
Anyway, I had some Prima Romance Novel left over from my February Scrap That! Kit and thought they would look great with my photo! I've been itching to use up one of my Dusty Attic French Flourish Borders (DA0275), so I painted this one black to really give it a pop against my papers. I have also been wanting to use one of my large Manor House and gave it a sprtiz in the center. I clustered it with a black Prima flower-button, some crinkle ribbon and a RN trinket. Some random punching, paper tearing and twine adorned button finish things off.I fussy cut the title and subtitle .. too perfect! (No mixed media on this one ... didn't have dry time!)
Here are a few close-ups:
I hope that you will stop by SOUS and see what the sketch team has done with this fortnight's sketch designed by yours truly. We'd love for you to play along as well!
Thanks for coming by!
