Sweet, sweet victory.......

We did it, we did it!! Anyone else singing Dora? *GRIN* I don't know what was wrong, but my computer would not let me upload photos from my camera or my memory card. I worked hard to get this to yall...I uploaded pics onto my hubby's computer, then emailed them to this one, then here we are! Whew.

I have been wanting to ink up my Ella and Looloo stamp FOREVER, and this week's Sketch for You to Try was perfect! I had such fun coloring this one...although there are some TEENSY spaces that are quite scary...we made it through alive.

The colors of this new Kaitlin collection from Crate Paper was perfect, so I used it for the three strips on my background. This card ended up taking a shabby chic turn that I wasn't expecting, but I quite like how it turned out. And the sentiment from Papertrey's Mixed Messages was the perfect finishing touch.

Well, thanks so much for being patient with me today through all my technical difficulty. Hopefully it was just a fluke and not something more serious! If you haven't already, make sure you check out the fabulous creations from Jen, Amy, Carole, & Susan using this sketch. And if you upload to Splitcoast, don't forget to use the keyword SFYTT so we can all see your beautiful work!

Have a great weekend!
