Playing in Paradise #107 - Sketch Time!

Happy Friday! It's the first 'unofficial' day of March Break for the Nova Scotia kids - the poor school staff still have interviews & an inservice today, but the kids are feeling pretty footloose & fancy free. A whole week stretched in front of them with nothing to do! My guess is that they'll still be getting up by 6 a.m. After all, you don't want to waste any of that precious vacation time ;)
It's Allison's turn as hostess this week, and that means that the Playing in Paradise challenge is a sketch:

I started out with some pink polka dot paper, added a grey scalloped border, and then....

...and then got a totally different idea, and ran with it. 

Supplies: Bo Bunny paper; Timeless Twine (orange, blue, yellow); stamps from Unity; Palette Noir ink; buttons from stash


This challenge will be open until next Thursday, March 14th.  To add your NEW project to the linky & see what the rest of  the team has created, click on over to the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog, and check out the DT on their blogs too:

And now I'm off to watch the very last episode of LOST before the kids wake up & insist on watching something else....I am so confused, and yet I somehow still care what happens to the rest of the characters. So, so confused, lol!

xoxo,
Jessi

Tell me about it.... James is a nightmare on school days to get out of bed yet in the hols he's as bright as a button at the same early hour!! E??? At least I'm not making packed lunch at an unearthly hour :0)
Great card, that bkgd paper is just so vibrant and a fab match for the coloured image :0)

Love this card Jessi! Great bright colors and that row of traffic is so cute! Wow! Just now getting to see the last episode of Lost? Let me know what you think!

Lindsey said...

And you thought you were confused before you watched the last episode! :D
You mean there's pink polka dots and scallops hiding under there? Okay, just kidding. What a fun boy birthday card!

Linda Pekrul said...

You're so funny Jessi ... pink polka dots, lol. Well I LOVE what the card turned into. Bright and fun! Good for you for making it to the last episode of Lost, I got LOST early on in the series and gave up, my brain just couldn't keep up with all the goings ons!!!

Love that bright funky paper - it goes perfectly with the style of those cute cars!

Lost is on my list of things to watch "one day". Given how long the list is I really ought to get started or there's no way in hell I'll ever get through it!
