Sketch Frenzy Friday 081012

Happy Friday all! Better week here with cooler temps! Still dry, but the cool helps!!! Spent today getting my boys ready for school. Doesn't seem possible that they start back Monday, but they do! I do like the routine of school, but I'm not ready for the days to zip by! My oldest is a Senior and I know it will be a crazy year!!

On to the reason you're here: Sketch Frenzy Friday!! It is amazing that I was able to come up with something!! I was running ideas through  my mind, picturing things with some of the new Framelits dies when I remembered: I don't have a working Big Shot. Oh no!! While prepping for Club last weekend, it didn't feel right on a couple of runs. Then it just stopped functioning :( It's seen many cuts and was just done I guess!! I have a new one on order, but it hasn't made it to my hands yet. So, after a bit of panic-really?? this sketch without a Big Shot??- I settled down and looked around to see what I might have cut already. Here is what I came up with

based on this sketch by Sharon Wheat

Not too bad?? The Green Label could have been a size smaller but it was one I had left over from Open House. I started there, then choose a color set from the Color Coach: Gumball Green, So Saffron & Melon Mambo. The background is So Saffron Designer Series Paper with an accent of Melon Mambo. I punched two Melon Mambo Decorative Labels and layered together under the featured layer. I stamped the bicycle from this years Ronald McDonald set Moving Forward on Whisper White. It has a saying included so one and done!! I used Markers to get all three colors on the one stamp. Well two actually-the flowers are separate. The final accent is a So Saffron Taffeta ribbon bow. 

Thanks for stopping by today! If I can connect with my new Big Shot over the weekend (my Club Hostess has it), I may have to give this another shot! I do really like these colors though!!

Great job for not having a Big Shot! I don't know what I would do without one! It is just such a bit part of my stamping life - lol! Love the bright colors!
