Stampin' Up! Simply Sketched


Wednesday!   You know what that means, right?!  Freshly Made Sketches!  Woo Hoo!  This week have a great sketch from the amazingly talented Cindy L.   Just like last week, I had an almost immediate idea for the sketch.  The doily was a given as was the chevron ribbon.  I hadn't decided on the image, but after deciding I wanted to watercolor, Simply Sketched was an easy choice.  It's a great set and one you can only get if you are the hostess with the mostest!   Definitely worth hosting a workshop for, that's for sure! 

I used my Color Coach for this color combination and it is one of my favorites.  Smoky Slate, Pear Pizzazz, and Pool Party are three of my favorite colors and I love using them together.   


Laila is totally addicted to these sunglasses.  She doesn't want to take them off.  EVER!   She even took a nap in them one day!  I think because Jason and I both wear glasses, she thinks she needs some as well.   It's cute, but trying to get them off of her for bedtime is a pain.  She even wakes up yelling "Glasses ON!" sometimes.   Goodness!   Toddlers really are crazy.  lol

I have a question about the sequins. Did you color them? Where they originally gold colored? You are very creative and I love to see your posts and the pictures of your cute daughter.
