I woke up this morning knowing I was going to be on So Sketchy this morning. Check it out here.
I earned the chance to be the June guest designer there. I have been so excited about it. I am a huge fan of the So Sketchy site. I think I check it out daily, even if Ally doesn't have a new sketch up. I'm hoping someday So Sketchy will be as huge as Pencil Lines (another awesome sketch site, if you don't know about it. Although, I'm pretty sure most scrappers do.). I think Ally not only deserves it, but she can do it.
These are the two layouts I made from the sketch Ally sent me. I made the circle one first, but was so inspired by the scketch I created a second one. The second one may have product some Bad Girls might reconize. I used the last kit (before Wendy re-vamped the site) to create this layout. Adding tiny alphas, paint (custom blend of three colours to match the swirls in the grapher tape) and crepe paper ribbon (also from a BG kit, but I don't remember which).
On top of waking up and seeing my name on the So Sketchy blog. I saw my name over at the Sassafras Lass blog! If you've read my blog before, or chatted with me in a forum, or you've seen my stash in real life, you should know by now that I ~heart~ Sassafras Lass. They are, hands down, my favourite manufacturer. Followed closely second by Prima. Do you want to know the funny thing about my love for Sass? I used to be insanely scared to use their paper. I had a bunch of it because I really like it. I just had no idea how to use it. Now my huge stash is very small. I need a job for extra cash just to spend on Sass products. If I could design with just Sass and Prima, I would be a very happy scrapper.
That being said...I really should stop hoarding my Sass felties and brads. I love them so much, I don't want to use them! Silly me!
Until next time...
