Still avoiding the housework...

Heck, as long as everyone else is going to sleep, I"m going to play!

Practical Scrappers has some interesting sketches this month. They are always so pretty, and so challenging for me. Here is a beautiful sketch by Jannike. :)
I'm not big on cutting up my photos on purpose like this, but Lasting Memories challenged us to try something new. I also used this for the color palette challenge from Color Combos Galore. :)
I love that there was plenty of background on this photo to make this sketch work. Luckily, my sister hasn't mastered the art of the zoom button on my camera. :)
And I realized that quite a few of the nozzles on my Glimmer Mist are starting to give me a hard time. They either stop working, or spit out the mist in globs. Time for a cleaning!
I added a piece of handmade paper I found at an Expo a few years back. It was so pretty and glittery and I finally found a use for it. Still attacking the older stash....
All of the chipboard pieces are from a collection by Me and My Big Ideas. And luckily, Michael's had a huge sale on all their bling, so I stocked up on swirls and pearls. The pearls were just the right touch to finish this up. :)
