Skissedilla #199 - Back and Forth

Hey there!  What a wonderful time the ScrapFX Blog Hop was!!  Thank you to everyone that stopped by, left comments, and answered questions.  I appreciate it so greatly.  A big huge welcome to all my new followers so happy to have you along!!! I'll announce my winner soon - perhaps tomorrow. For now I've got a Skissedilla page to share.

Sketch #199 is up and ready for you to take on at Skissedilla and I must say this week's sketch had me going eeps! I mean that is a whole lotta white space.....I don't do white space all that well LOL!

ScrapFX speech bubble chippies are too fun!  For this page it worked out lovely to leave it bare and just outline with a gel pen.  Really love how gel pens and chippies mix.  Remember my sheet of arrow embellishments from my tutorial posted here? Yep, you guessed it put some more of them to work right away on this page.
Arrrgggh! went through my mind more then once....giggling over here now (after the fact) because truth be told I was arrrggghing more over the fact my mischievous kittens decided to destroy the page I already made (yes this is the second take) and my space the night before this was due!!  Picture twine, sequins, punchinella, paper bits, stickers, jars of mediums - you name it - EVERYWHERE!!!!

Lovin' the dies I ordered during my guest DT time with the Crop Stop store!!! The deer and string of stars are from the Memory Box line they carry and I love them!  Lots of sparkly texture going on in the background of this page and you'll soon see/learn how I created this when I have my next ScrapFX post go live - eek! can hardly wait - its a doozie!
Thank goodness a peaceful deer scene can bring zen to just about any situation - the kittens live to see another day ;)  Not to mention when I think about all the snow my poor hubs has had to shovel because our snowblower conked out and we don't really wanna pop for another at the moment - he gets the privilege of the arrrgggh chippie. Yup, for reals.

I used a ton of older stash on this page - Echo Park to be specific - and it felt wonderful!  I'm totally making room for new goodies I've got on ordered that will ship soon - yahoo! - but what I also discovered was using this stuff hat had been here for ages WAS like using new stuff again - win/win situation if you ask me. 
So back and forth he goes on a Saturday morning before leaving for work so I can be assured of getting out the driveway if I want to.  Not that I need to, only if I want to.  Aww, I'm a lucky duck for sure. And I was even able to manage leaving a bit of white space - not all of it bit some ;)

I do hope you join us this week - there is a gift card up for grabs from The Flying Unicorn and our Selected Scrapper, Kelly Foster, has a lovely prize for the overall monthly winner as well!

Looking forward to seeing your pages there!!
