MY SATURDAY SHARE

Happy Saturday! 

Today I am here to share with you one layout and one special project that I really enjoyed creating.


First for the layout. I chose Team B May Week 2 sketch from Let's Get Sketchy.



 
I rotated the sketch 1/4 turn counter clockwise.

and the layout!


with a few close-ups.



fun fabric ribbon with stitching



and then my stitched circles

Next up is a really fun project.  I've recently joined a Facebook group called Addicted 2 Paper Dolls. The Monthly Contest just closed.  The Theme for this month was April Showers bring May Flowers.  Of course with it being a Doll group you would create something using the theme that would include a Julie Nutting or C-thru the Woods doll stamp.

I decided I would make a small canvas. I started by using some white chalk paint that I add a few drops of re-inker to and painted my canvas.  I had a few sheets of paper, chipboard and sticker embellishments that were just perfect for the theme from an old Crate Paper collection.  I fussy cut the clouds from one of the sheets of paper and used some chipboard raindrops and flowers. I created my dolls and chose an inspirational sticker to finish it off.


and now for my close-ups...


some flowers


some raindrops

I'm also going to enter my canvas in challenge #183 over at Word Art Wednesday.

I hope that you have enjoyed my Saturday Share. I'm off to create something new! Thanks so much for stopping by.  All comments greatly appreciated.

TWO FOR YOU!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!

Today I had a wonderful Mother's Day with my two sons and my future daughter-in-law (no - there are no official plans set yet but...we all know there will be...hopefully soon!)  We had a delicious brunch at IHOP and spent some time together this afternoon.


Tonight I got back to the creating I started yesterday before I got a horrid aura/occular migraine and then got a call that another special person in my life had died. All in all yesterday was a pretty awful day.  I was still not in great shape when I went to worship this morning but I think all the prayers and support followed up by a nap helped me to enjoy the special time with my children.



So back to the creating end of things...

Feeling Sketchy had 2 extra challenges 
this month for NSD.

Here is the first great sketch:
