TE Sketch Challenge Friday!

Hi everyone! Sick of my yet? I promise, I'll give you (and I) a break and not post anything over the weekend, lol! I'm going to a wedding on Saturday evening and I'm soooo looking forward to it! I always cry at weddings and it makes me squeeze the hubby that much tighter. I remember our wedding like it was yesterday....sort of. It was a whirlwind but I loved every single second!

Ok, here's the sketch for you, and it's a fun one!



I have another little confession to make. So, not only do I hoard paper...I tend to hoard my embellishments too. That had to end....NOW! I busted out my Primas that sit and collect dust because I love them so much. Here they are (finally) in their full glory!


Ok, so I only used the flower and the pearls with flowers...but that took a lot for me!! I used my two never fave sets that just released yesterday... Miniature Motifs (stamped on the back panel and on my vintage paper leaves) and sentiment from CreativiTEA. Patterned paper is the Classic paper pack from Crafty Secrets. I distressed edges with Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, and Tea Dye Distress inks.

Now, let's check out what the rest of the sketch crew has come up with!!


And, in other unrelated news....I got a new toy last Saturday and I am in loooooove with it! Yes, I got the IPad!! I spent until 4 in the morning playing with it the first night I had it...I know, I'm NUTS! But I can't rave about it enough. If you have the Iphone, it seriously makes it look like a little toy. Just amazing!


And here's the cover I want to get for it....you know, ever girl needs her protection. Enter....the IMaxi!

Keeping the IPad clean and dry! LOL! But actually, my husband won't let me get it...he said he'd be embarrassed to carry it out. I may just get it anyway! HAH! What do you think?? :)

You gotta get that case! It's hilarious! I can't stop laughing. It's even got wings. I am getting such a kick out of that case I also forgot to tell you about your card. It's beautiful Melissa, but isn't everything you create. So lovely! Oh, I was so thrilled to see you in my latest edition of Paper Crafts. They have a whole write up on you and everything.
