Playing in Paradise #87 - Sketch Time!

Happy Friday! It's pretty official - I have succumbed to the cold, or at least the sore throat portion. I really thought I was going to be able to fight it off. *wah*

In other *sickie* news, remember last week when I told you about my pre-paid cat barf cleanup? Yesterday tested the limits apparently. One cat isn't feeling great (she gets that way every few months, usually after escaping & eating grass). Riley now says that I owe him $1, or next time he has to clean it up he's going to barf too. I'm pretty sure I still had some pre-paid jobs left, but he's no dummy - he knows I'll pay it to avoid anyone else getting sick ;) I don't know, don't tell him, but at $1 a cleanup I still think that's a pretty good deal.

Alrighty then.
Onto today's challenge over at Playing in Paradise - Allison is the hostess this week, which means SKETCHY SKETCH!
Something I love about Allison's sketches is their versatility - they adapt very well to either a standard rectangular card, or a scrapbook page. And, of course, the more sketches I play along with, the more comfortable I am with interpreting them. No bow on my card, and no matted squares. But I do have this:
Supplies: papers from Basic Grey, "Indian Summer;"
lace from Hero Arts;
Vintage Photo and Worn Lipstick distress ink;
sentiment from Paper Smooches; leaf from All Night Media;
buttons from stash;

The tight weave of the canvas makes it a little tougher to fray the edges,
but I noticed once you work the fibres out, it stays as frayed as you want it.
The tight weave also makes it possible to use foam tape for dimension
without it showing through the fabric.
Scrapbooker's Paradise has over 100 products from Canvas Corp - fabric and more - that you should really check out if you've wanted to try incorporating canvas, burlap, etc in your paper crafts. 

 The linky is open until noon on Thursday, October 11th. 

Don't forget to see what the rest of the team has been up to:
