Well is not Monday and I'm late what can I say being with out my laptop I'm lost :) My hubby promises it will be fixed soon......

But there still is time to join in the fun over at Let's Get Sketchy!!! This is the last sketch for the month of July so don't skip this one! its you last chance to enter to win a gift card to Scraptown Lady!!

Here is this weeks Sketch:

And here is my take as you can see I deviated a bit from the sketch but not too much :) I used some Fancy Pants Scraps that Anegla was kind enough to pass along from her Scrappy Chic kit from a few months back! You gotta love her! I must have been channeling Angela as I added the Studio Calico Wood Veneers and Mister Hueys Mist :)

Isn't my little gymnast the cutest thing ever!! Syd was so excited about her new Leo :) Well now its your turn hop on over and link up your layouts before the end of the month over at Let's Get Sketchy!

Sorry the pictures aren't the best I was so excited to get it to the store I forgot to take pictures at home :)

So if you are near the store stop in and check it out it really did turn out pretty and its super easy to make!

Products Used: Authentiue- Irresistible Collection, Dylusions Mist, Tim Holtz Distressed Ink, Zva Crystals,  Black Paint, Dollar Bin Wooden Frame and a bit of wire.

Lots of fuss cut flowers that I colored using Dylusions Ink.
 The Hearts were also cut from the collection misted  with Dylousions and the hot glued to wire.


I love the way the distressed ink worked with the background.

Kaisercraft Miss Empire

You've heard the saying "All that glitters is not gold."  Well, that's not true over at Practical Scrappers!  Today, the On Trend team has provided a few nuggets of inspiration using gold embellishments & elements.

Here is the layout that I created using my June Kit from Scrappy Chic!!! Angela knows I just love my Kasiercraft so she was kind enough to tuck some of the beautiful Miss Empire Collection by Kaisercarft into my kit.  As you can see I just went to town fussy cutting tucking and layering and I even played with a few different mediums!
Products used: Kaisercraft Miss Empire Collection, American Craft Thickers, Prima Vine, Tim Holtz Big Dies, Gel Medium, Perfect Pearls,  Acrylic Paint, Ranger Embossing Power and Ink and a bit of chipboard & brads.
Here you can see that I even embossed the thickers :)
A bit of the clock tucked in of coarse its embossed as well.
a lots of fussy cutting and a bit of paint went into this cluster!
Here you can see a bit of the gel medium that
I mixed with perfect pearls for yet another layer!

Lets's Get Sketchy Week 2!

That's right its Monday and you know what that means its time for another great sketch from Let's Get Sketchy! This weeks Sketch was created by our fearless leader Brenshevia:

Here is the layout that I created using the super fun Down by the Shore Collection by Fancy Pants!
You can see I did deviate from the sketch a bit I cut my single photo into three instead of using two pictures and I added a third cluster of flowers to make my visual triangle. Lastly I couldn't bear the thought of covering the cute little whale so I cut my layers shorter and omitted the diving line. But even with all my switch ups you can she Brenshevia's sketch shinning through!
Here are a bit of the details just for fun!
Here you can see how I cutout the front of the cute little whale
 to tuck the layered papers, I really wanted to keep the whale :)
Lots of fussy cutting and foam tape went into these clusters!
Thanks for stopping by to day!
Make sure you hop back over to Let's Get Sketchy to link up your layout!
