if i could create daily...



I just couldn't resist the LURE of a guest design spot over at Sketchy Thursdays! I just love Diana & Heidi's sketches...they are just so fun & they tend to push me to do things that are out of my normal...whatever my normal is! LOL!

The guest design spot challenge is sponsored by The Pink Ninjas and up for grabs is their first kit "Three Little Birds"...looks like tons of fun:



So the challenge for the April Guest Design Spot at Sketchy Thursdays is this...

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

2. Technique - Mist or paint IN PINK.

3. Sketchy Twist - Use this sketch:






I had to give the prompt quite a bit of thought, but kept coming back to "if i could create daily"...so I went with it! Next, the PINK mist or paint...well, there's just not a whole lot of pink in my scrappy supplies at all...guess that happens when you are scrapping mostly BOY stuff :o) I found some PINK acrylic paint & some large bubble wrap @ work & decided that would create a fun circle background...so here's my layout:





I just have to say that I had a blast creatingthis layout! Not only was the paint fun, but I also went with the 8.5 x 11 format...totally out of the norm for me...I can totally see myself doing more of this size...I also played with the sketch quite a bit, but was totally inspired by it :o)


My journaling (using those wonderful tiny alphas by Making Memories!): if i could create daily i would be on cloud 9


Here's a close up of my title embellishment:
