Skissedilla #174

Happy Labor Day to all those celebrating today!  Do you have plans to get your grill on??  We'll be doing that a little later on today - YAY - no cooking for me!!!  I think we may also go to play some Frisbee golf but it sure is rootin' tootin' hot outside so we'll see!

If you're looking for something scrappy to do then I would say you should head on over to Skissedilla where there is a brand new sketch and Selected Scrapper posted!!!!  I was beyond thrilled to have my first turn at choosing the special person to scrap with us this month and I just know you all will love her!!!!  Let me know what you think after you check out the post, K?

I've used some lovely new Glitz papers - along with a new Crafter's Workshop stencil, and of course I used my favorite ScrapFX clouds stencil as well along with lots of ScrapFX chippies - I'd been pondering for a long time what to do with that oversized gear - turning it in to a sun suited me better!!
 For my take I decided to mirror the sketch and instead of the circle element being in the lower right hand corner it flipped up to the top left.  I was inspired by the circle element and the word strips for the title.

I've been wanting to do something with a pie chart type shape for a long time but wasn't entirely sure how to make it my own - filling the gear sun with a mix of papers was a great way to start experimenting - I wish you could see the texture of the cloud better - some scrap lace embedded in gesso give it a great bumpy look and feel
Its my turn this week to host the Skissedilla blog so I would love for you to stop on by and say hello - plus if you play along you'll have the chance to win this:

(12) 6x6 Prima Doodle papers, (1) My Mind's Eye stamp set, (6) Maya Road chipboard banner pieces, (5) Maya Road gem beads, (5) buttons, (3) Maya Road stickpins, and (1) roll October Afternoon washi
Good stuff right??  Wait until you see what the Selected Scrapper has up for grabs!!!  You're not going to wanna miss it - and to be sure you don't, how about a lil' giveaway here too??  Yes, I think that would be good - I'll be back with some deets on that!

Until the take care and make some terrific memories today!
