My girlfriend broke plans with me tomorrow, so I can sleep in... And what am I doing? Staying up late (obvs).

Here is Super Sketchy Sunday over at 365 and a color scheme ala Double Dutch Everything on here is Sassafras and from Mackenzie Mae card kits. It's looking a little sloppy. More early am crafting from me. The sketch is below. This is one of my favorites from Pam so far. I hope to use it again (maybe not at 1am).

Double Dutch's color scheme was pink, brown and cream from what I can tell.

Cupcake, anyone?

Above is so you can see the dimension. This is one of my favorite cards ever! It looks better IRL.

This is for a few challenges:

365 #9 Use only scraps ~ All Sass and cs from Mackenzie Mae kit

Heart Hugs ~ inspired by picture below

Cinema Saturday ~ inspired by Sixteen Candles (so fun)

3 Clovers ~Use something digital (digi stamp)

Last, but not least...

Pile It On ~ Make it Masculine
Tim Holtz stamp says "to be all that is possible, we must attempt the impossible. to be all that we can be, we must dream of being more."
Rubbernecker ~ make a card using a favorite memory in your past as inspiration. It can be a favorite moment, event, trip, article of clothing...anything that brings a smile or a giggle. Oh, one more must tell us the story behind the memory!!!

I've been to Venice twice. Once as a 5 year old as seen below (and that's my little brother, Lance).

That hat I'm wearing was given to me by one of the Gondola drivers. I was obsessed with it for quite some time. I loved everything about it and jumped at the chance to go back when I was a freshman in high school. I loved it again at 14 and was thrilled to get hit on by Italian men and have the Gondola drivers sing to me. It's been far too long since I've been back to Italy and this pic always puts a smile on my face.
