Big Brads

Hi, I'm feeling tired today and abit odd. I think I'll feel happy when I've been to the post office, got a couple of worky jobs done that are on my 'to-do' list and then I'll make a latte.

In the meantime, I've uploaded these.
I think this is one of faves from this Florida Album so far. This colour combo of brown, green, red and turquoise is a real favourite of mine right now.
I found this Sketch Challenge Blog this week which I love. Twisted Sketches. Here's the Sketch I worked from.
I used bits and pieces from Cocoa Daisy kits and some October Afternoon stickers too.

The twist in the challenge is to use fabric somewhere on the LO. I used these large fabric covered brads that were in the CD Ali Edwards kit.

The photo was taken in our fave park, Island of Adventures. We love it there. Both times it's been our fave. I've popped a journal tag under the photo of all the reasons we love it so much.

This next one is a sketch from Sketchy Thursday. It's an additional sketch this week sponsered by The Pink Ninja Addicts. Their blog is really cool and definitely worth a visit.

The challenge is :

Prompt - Fill in the blanks: "If I could __________, I would ________."

Technique - Mist or paint IN PINK.

And to use the sketch here.

My pink mist isn't so obvious, but I didn't want it overpowering my page. The smaller pink dots near the photos are Heidi Swapp hot pink paint pushed though a piece of cardstock with holes punched out.
My journaling on all the circles says: Hey Guys!...... If I could join..... You in that pool.... I would but it's Freezin.... You say you get used to it.....But it's far too cold for me.... I prefer the hot tub.

It really was icey cold. I have no idea how they kept playing in there.

I guess that's me done here. Orders to be packed and Post Office here I come !

Lisa, as always wonderful work and you would also have a hard time convincing me to hop into a cold pool if there was a nice hot spa nearby! xx
