Sassy Lil" Sketches Reveal

hey everyone!

it's time for the august reveal for Sassy Lil' Sketches.

here's the sketch:

and my take on this fun sketch...

and for the deetz...

i used the cocoa daisy "urban loft" kit for this one.
paint splatters, doodling, and of course some tone-on-tone starburst punched shapes.
this was definitely a fun lo and i love how it turned out.
i've never used a grid design until now.
will definitely be using this type of design in future lo's.

make sure you check out our sassy ladiez creations using this fun sketch.
sharing is caring.
plus you could win a prize by our sponsor:

Apron Strings Designs

have a good one!

happy 40th

happy anniversary mom & dad!
40 beautiful, wonderful years of love & marriage.

i sent this card to them to celebrate these past years...

and of course the deetz...

supplies:   a million memories april kit; additional:  martha stewart, ek success, aleene's, inkadinkado, recollections by michael's

i love those acrylic stamps i got from michael's last weekend.
simple and straightforward sentiment and heart shape.

i so admire that my parents have been together for so many years.
i want me and my hubby to be like that.
i love my hubby so much.
he is one of my best friends.
one of my loves ( my others are our daughters and of course scrapbooking!).
he is a wonderful man altogether.
i have a feeling we will be together for a very long time.
40 years like my parents?
hmmmmm...i think so!

happy 40th mommy & daddy!
