Live It Up - Celebrate

I FINALLY got around to using one of the fantastic sketches over at the wonderful 2 Sketches 4 You site!


This is not for the current sketch, it is for a past sketch. At 4 Scrappy Sisters, one of the monthly challenges for August is to use Laura's Sketch #5. I turned the sketch on its side. I used Cosmo Cricket Halfway Cafe papers. I love these papers! The "live it up" stamp is one of the $1 acrylic stamps. Then I used Twistel on my card. Remember Twistel? It's from Making Memories, and I've had it for such a long time, but it really works on this card. Last touch is a western brad and lots of chalk ink distressing. I love the way this turned out!

Well, my girls start marching band boot camp today. It's from 9 a.m. until 12 noon. They have it for five days in a row. Thanks goodness it's only going to be in the upper 70's today. At least they won't be overwhelmed by the heat.

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous as always! :) I'm glad the weather is nice for the girls! My future sister in law just started in the band at college, and they practice from 9am-9pm everyday! They get time off every few hours, but its been disgustingly hot here!
