Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #29

Beate is finally back with her weekend sketch challenges! Yay! I don't know about you, but I sure have missed her! I really missed doing her sketches every Friday too. As you know, sketch challenges are my favorite! This one is no exception. I've had this set from SU's new Spring-Summer Collection, but this is the first I've used it. I just love it. It reminds me a lot of the "So Very" Sell-a-bration set from last year. . .and that was one of my favorites. In order to make "celebrate" fit in the space, I used markers and colored the first four letters and stamped them, then cleaned the stamp, colored the last 5 letters and stamped them. My Stamp-a-ma-jig was VERY HELPFUL in the placement of the letters. The paper is also from the new Bali Breeze Designer Series. Love these fresh, fun colors! Be sure and see what beautiful creations Beate, Cami, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, Mary Jo and Sharon have come up with. I'm sure they'll dazzle you just like they dazzle me! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Celebrate Everything (SU); Paper- Bali Breeze DS; Ink- Whisper White Craft (SU); Accessories- 3/4" and 1" circle punches, ticket corner punch, Taken With Teal, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, Old Olive markers, Signo White gel pen, paper piercer, horizontal slot punch (SU), brads, ribbon (Darice).

Charmaine, this is wonderful!!! The colors are so happy...and I love how you "broke up" the sentiment (you are so clever!)! You are definitely motivating me to finally ink my set up as well! :-)
