Maybe I should of done a card dedicated to rain in place of a rain dance because by golly we need rain soooooooo bad. A couple of months ago all we had was some really bad flooding. Now everyone's hay I mean grass is dried up and crisp. I try keeping up with it and watering it but it is hard to do with over 100 degree temps and an acre and a half of grass to try to save. As I am typing this I hear thunder in the distance so I am praying that it will rain!
Anyway this week there is a great sketch over Peachy Keen Stamps. But hold on there is a twist!!!!
Here is the sketch:
And the twist was to use this color combo:
This is what I came up with using both guidelines:
The adorable elephant is from Peachy Keen Stamps. I embossed the image in a blue powder first and then colored it in. I wanted to add a little something in the blank space so I took a scrap die cut I had laying around and used PK-101 Medium Polka Dt background stamp to give it a bit of design since it was the same kraft color as the card. The buttons, sentiment and card stock are from Papertrey Ink.

- I am a stay at home mom..now that is! February 19th, 2007 I was involved in a car accident while on vacation in Florida. I awoke in ICU to find out that my only two children Annemarie age 3 and Michael age 5 did not make it. Scrapbooking became such a big part of my life. It helped fill a void that I desperately needed to fill. Our therapist suggested that I take up scrapbooking as a way to memorialize my children, little did she know! So I took that and ran with it.I became obsessed with scrapping and took over the second largest room in my house. Because of my injuries I couldn't go out and get a job, I just scrapped!I printed out 2,000 photos and my journey began. I have made albums for family members and layouts to decorate my craft room. We thought we were done having kids but who expected this tragedy??? I just gave birth in June 2009 to two beautiful baby girls Mia Anne and Gianna Marie named after their brother and sister.I swore that I would keep up with their albums so I won't become overwhelmed so we will see how that works out! My profile picture is the last family picture that was taken of all of us.
