Sketch Inspiration Sketch #133

Just poppin' on real quick to share a new (new to me) sketch site called Sketch Inspirations. Be sure and check 'em out if you get the chance. 

Here's the sketch:

And here's the layout I came up with:

Thanks for looking!  Off to watch Burn Notice and Royal Pains with the hubs!

I have the house all to myself....

today and what am I doing you ask? Laundry, dishes, cleaning out the fridge and scrubbing toilet bowls! UGH!  What the hell is wrong with me?  I should be using this time to scrap my little heart out or veg out on the couch with the remote control in MY hands watching sappy movies on Lifetime.  Have I neglected the house so much that I find the need to give it a good thorough cleaning on the only day that I have it all to myself!  For the life of me, I can't understand how some women could ever be bored when there is always something to do!  Let me tell you, I am not one of those women.  I can always find something to scrubbing the toilet for pete's sake!  Hey, I know it's not a pretty job, but I'm pretty damn pleased with my life, even if it means that everything I've done in the house today goes unnoticed and unappreciated by my two boys.  And by the end of the day I will have another sink full of dishes and another load of clothes to wash......but for now it is done and I can sit back and enjoy all my hard work.

Hope you all are having a wonderful Wednesday and you're doing something you enjoy!

Yo Yo Flowers

I created these little flowers back in May for the flower contest over at Cookin' Up Creations....needless to say, I didn't win but it was fun anyway.  I used my large circle nestabilities to cut the fabric and then did a running stitch around the edge of the circle, pulled it taut, stitched the button on and voila.....a yo yo flower!

and here they are used on a card.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend!
