I saw this sketch at Sketches4you and fell in love with it! No surprise though, it's by Cherie at Sassy "lil Sketches and I love all her sketches. It is a part of the Sketch-a-thon going on now at Sketches4you.
I used my I-rock to put all those yellow (hard to tell, I know) rhinestones on. So easy!!! I then used glimmer mist w/ a heavy dose of perfect pearls in it and sprayed the Tim Holtz' clock mask in the upper right hand corner. I had a pink glimmer mist that I thought would be great, but when I pulled it down it was this yucky goldish color!!! Is there an expiration date for glimmer mist? Rather than toss it I just heaped in the perfect pearls until it was a rose. In person it is sooooo sparkly! Glad the glimmer mist went bad, lol. I also distress the pattern paper and then inked it up. Yup, my hands are a strange array of colors.
Here's the challenges I used to make my layout:

I am happy to say I am feeling better, but my husband came down w/ it yesterday. It's a viscous circle. It seems this school year, we will once again be the house of plague ;)
Also, my girlfriend Christina, sweetheart that she is, gave me a blog award.
That totally made my day! I've know Christina for a while and I always love reading what she has to say. For a awhile she wasn't feeling so hot, and I really missed her. Glad your back girl! Christina also runs the Challenge Blog Scrap it with a Song. You should definitely go check it out, they are a great group of gals.
So by getting this I get to bore you with 10 things that make me happy right now. So here's the list.
1. My children
2. My husband
3. preschool (gasp! Did she say that?) yes, I did.
4. The sound of laughter, especially my children's
5. Scrapbooking (duh, I know)
6. Anything that resembles or has chocolate in it
7. My Mac (never will I go PC again!)
8. My Kindle
9. My IPad (yes, I am a techno geek)
10. All of you gals
I'm suppose to forward this to 10 friends, but there's no way I can pick 10. I'd leave someone out and it would hurt my feelings. So, if you are one of those
unfortunate lucky gals that swaps blog chatter w/ me, scoop this baby up and display it proudly! Let me know if you do, so I can leave you more bloggy love :)
Have a fun and fabulous weekend gals!
