Then yesterday, Denise and I had a "girl day". We started out by having lunch out at a local Mexican food place. Then we hit the local scrapbook stores and bought a few goodies to play with when we had a chance. We finished up our "girl day" by going to see a movie, Snow White and the Huntsman. Not really the best movie because it was slow and all Snow White did was cry the whole movie but we wanted to see it and and we got to. I wanted to see Prometheus but Denise said NO! Scaredy cat!!

We came home and the guys had grilled burgers for us all. Then the guys watched hockey and we went in my scrap room and scrapped and watched a couple of movies. I made a card from a sketch challenge that Fia has on Sketches4all. I used some gorgeous paper from Graphic 45 - A Ladies Diary Collection. And I got this cool wooden bird flourish from Kaisercraft that I colored with a Tim Holtz watercolor marker. I pulled ribbon and pearls from my stash and I used my new stamps from CTMH for the sentiment.
Today Denise talked me into working on a sketch challenge from Skissedilla blog. Here is what I came up with today. I used some paper from the same collection as the card, Graphic 45 - A Ladies Diary Collection. Then I added some Tim Holtz distress ink drops. I swirled a round container in it and made circles. I put some on a paint brush and flicked it on the paper for some splatters. Next I pulled out a Dylusions stencil and a TH Distress in pad. I just randomly placed the dots around the page and rubbed the ink over the stencil.
I pulled some cardboard, a doily, a vellum envelope, a metal clock face and a roll of flowers from my stash. I distressed them with Distress ink and started layering things. I decided to print my photos in sepia so that they would go better with the distress feel of the layout.
The photos are of my dad (but you couldn't guess that! LOL). We don't get a lot of photos of him and he usually isn't smiling so it was nice to get these. I made a little journaling card for inside the envelope.
I like how it turned out. How about you??
Now we are going to feed the kids and go swimming. Then hopefully more scrapping after that so expect another post soon. Hope you weekend is going great too!!
