Happy? Monday!

It's summertime, which means that Mondays don't hold the usual thrill for me that they do during school months.  I don't have quiet time, I don't have that leisurely coffee on the couch watching Young and the Restless before getting ready for work....  So Monday is just a Monday right now. lol

Sketchy Saturday at Paper Issues brought us a sketch by the uber talented Steph Buice, I love her work and was very excited to see that they had chosen one of hers to use. :)

Here is the sketch:

And here is what I did with it, using of course, some of the remaining Color Chaos papers from Bella Blvd.  I swear, I'm almost out of this stuff. ;)

Such a fun sketch, you could take it a whole bunch of different directions!!!

We have company coming in tonight for the week, so I doubt I'll be able to get back to the scrappy table until the weekend.  Have a great week everyone!!!

Happy 4th of July!!

I totally missed Canada Day posting on here to wish my local Canadian friends a Happy Canada Day!!  So I'll combine it with todays wish for my south of the border friends to have a wonderful day celebrating with friends and family!!!  We had a good day on Wednesday, finished off with amazing fireworks down at our beach.  Always a great time!!

I did take a few evenings this week to try and work on some scrappy stuff.... things have been busy and we were out of town as well, so it took me 4 days to get one layout finished. LOL!!  I did this one for the Scraplift Sunday at Paper Issues, based on a layout from Jennifer Holloway McMurtrey.  Here is her original version, which I really really loved....

And here is my version, using October Afternoons Treasure Map line, which is so frickin' cute!!!!!!

Always some inspiring challenges for fun around the PIFF group, if you haven't yet checked it out on FB, please do!!!!!
