Lets get sketchy

Week #3 sketch over at lets get sketchy


 I decided to dig deeper into my pictures and found a wonderful picture of Stephanie on her third Birthday,she was trying to help me decorate the cake.As a matter of fact her and Sam helped make the whole cake,it was one of the worst cakes we have ever make but they had so much fun making it!
I used mostly scraps for this whole layout and Sam convinced me to use the lace with the little coffee filter flowers as the center.

I really didn't like anything I had around the house for the small embellishments at the top,So I took a ride to the thrift store.I thought I could find some really cool buttons or something.
hanging heart charms
what I did find were these cute heart charms,not sure what they were suppose to be for but I thought they fit perfect with just a little bit of thread to hold them on! The last thing I added was the banner/pennant thingy as you can probably tell I really don't like those things but this one kind of fit.
layers and the banner/pennant
I used a flower punch,still using scraps then ticked thru them and put a cute stamp on a few...like this one better then my other attempts.So that's my entry for week 3 at Lets get sketchy thanks for taking a peek.

  2. thank you so much for your kind words. My oldest sews so we are always going to the thrift store for odds and ends and there aren't any craft stores around here...plus our walmart doesn't carry much arts and craft stuff...I also found ribbons,beads, they have tons of post cards...it was great!
