Celebrate Life with Let's Get Sketchy and SATW!!!!

If you are here for the SNS Birthday Bash and the $20.00 Frosted Designs Gift Certificate, please click here!!!

Hey there gang!!!  Hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend!! Let us remember why we celebrate this day, and to the men and women who have made that possible :-)

Well, it is Monday, which means another fabulous sketch over at Let's Get Sketchy!  Here is this week's sketch:

I also combined this sketch with the May Mood Board over at Scrap Around The World!  They have an amazing challenge lined up with tons of fabulous prizes!!!  I was inspired by the beautiful colors, patterns, and balloons!!!

I know you are all so sick of seeing this collection, but I promise, it's almost all used up!!!  Hahaha!!!  
Here's my page:

I've used the Simple Stories "Homespun" Collection from the Frosted Designs Store, yet again!  I just love the bright, bold colors!!  It's right up my crafting alley :-)

I wanted to keep this page pretty clean, so I used white Bazzil cardstock as my base, matted on Kraft Core cardstock by Tim Holtz (LOVE these papers!!!!).  I added some simple stencil work with the Heidi Swapp "Chevron Stencil" masked with a circle stencil on top.  I used black distress ink for color!

Teh, I cut out these adorable photos of my youngest daughter taken when she was only six months old!!  Oh, how I miss those days :-)

I used my Cricut Explore to create a stencil for balloons, then mixed molding paste with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals and alcohol inks for my desired colors!  After that was dry, I applied some Faber Castell Glaze mixed with fine, gold glitter for shine!

And I used red and white twine as my "strings!

I finished my page with some additional twine, and DIY Thickers with red and gold glitter for my title!

DON'T FORGET!!!!  You have until June 15th to link up your challenge for my SNS Birthday Bash Challenge for your chance to win a $20.00 Gift Certificate to the Frosted Designs Store!!!

Well gang...  Thanks soooo much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
