Scrapbook Friday ~ "Dream Big"

Scrapbook Friday - August 3, 2012 - Sketch

Hello Crafty Blends.
I am so glad you are stopping by today.
I was so pleased
with the way my next layout turned out,
that I have been cringing to show it to you!
I hope you like it 
as much as I do.

I started with this Sketch
from Erica at My Cricut Craft Room

I love when you can start with a fun
sketch and
your creativity FLOWS on from there 
without any glitches.  

Well . . . . to be completely honest, 
there were a few
minor glitches . . .  
I had a bit of a re-inker explosion 
in the bathroom that left 
my hands looking like I just got done
arm wrestling a Smurf.  
* * * * * 
Then there was the hidden finger daubers
under all of my other crafty supplies 
that were almost impossible 
to find
since my thumb and index finger
 were stuck together 
from the Glitter Glue.  
* * * * *  
Oh, and I tried to take
a break an eat a yummy sandwich in between crafting.  
Let me just say,
it is REALLY HARD to get Italian Dressing 
out from in between
the home-row keys on your keyboard.
! ! ! ! ! LOL ! ! ! ! !

I am laughing, because I took it all in stride, 
and didn't let it stop
me from 
reaching the finish line.

And here is what I ended up With:
