Happy? Sad? Who Cares, I'm With Dad! ~SOUS April 30~

Happy? Sad? Who Cares I'm With Dad!

Well today's reveal is our first 2 page sketch (I think! LOL!) and it is by Beggahuna! I really enjoy her sketches and find them extremely versatile! You can find her work here. I feel really lucky we have so many awesome choices for sketches these days!

I had a few struggles with these pages. I knew the photos I wanted to use and was lucky enough to get them to fit well with the sketch. The large photo printed badly so that was disappointing but in it went!

The blue base paper is Bazzill. And all the prints are by KI Memories. Well all but the cream pp which is by Autumn Leaves. And here you can really see the off coloring in the photos ;o(

The font is Cuttin' Up and the large arrow is from Graphically Speaking. I went with that shape to mimic the arrows in the PP.

Well I have got to say that I want sooooo badly to start sewing on projects and since that isn't happening any time soon I went another route and drew my own uneven lines...and actually really dig how it turned out! It as fun and freeing to do and added a great detail to the pages!

After putting together the lettering I thought it needed a little something else so I added some random doodles in the same fashion as the outside lines. I also added my very favorite distressed splatter stamp as well as some stars.

And man, I was on such a roll that I decided to take some of my scraps from the project and put them together on a card! I added some twine, another thing I use often, and then added a cut from A Childs Year. This was actually my first time cutting a silouette from this cart!

Thank you for coming by...I want to again thank all my new followers! I know not everyone has the time to leave comments but I appreciate the visit none-the-less! Hope you all have a kick butt weekend!!!
