Sketchy Thursdays guest DT February 2011

So Saturday was VERY productive in the Scrappy department.  I finished 3 layouts!!  I had a blast working with this sketch from sketchy Thursdays and the Cosmo Cricket paper.  Besides using the sketch you had to: use a heart, use red or pink, and journal.  Easy!

 here are the hearts that I used closeup, excuse the glue this little puppy kept skidding away from me it was hard to get a hold of! :)
 If you have been following me very long, you know that I have been trying to use up things in my stash.  This leather frame I bought at big lots a LONG time ago, it's been sitting on my desk.  It was red, I used it!  I put pop dots on the back of this sticker so that not only is it sticking to the frame but also the paper underneath.
 Another cool idea that came about was the tulle.  There is a red side and black side to the design that I covered.  I didn't want to go ALL black or red.  So I pulled out my tool and wrapped it around the sheet of paper and sewed it down.  I like that it cut the color AND gave me some black too.
 I cut these flowers out of a piece of the patterned paper AND I used my circle punch to get the black outlined one cut just right.  Yep, I felt productive and creative at the same time!

We REALLY liked Despicable Me or as my youngest would call it "Despicdable me" :)  There were parts for everyone to laugh at.  
Well, I'm off for a bike ride with the kiddos!  Thanks for dropping in!  And I hope that you have a WONDERFUL day!
