It's been a long week but with a perfect ending. Last night, my dear Krissy came over and we laughed and talked and pushed around our scrapbooking supplies.

We're both big suckers for any and all My Mind's Eye products so we often troll their blog for challenges. They always post awesome sketches!

I just LOVE the February Sketch. Anything with 3 photos is perfect for my style. And, it turns out, that I got this done just in time for the Gossamer Blue/My Mind's Eye Guest Designer Contest. I'd never heard of Gossamer Blue kits before but they are AWESOME!

What do you think of the journaling on the edges of the layout?

I used papers from Stella and Rose "Mabel." The sticker with the orange border is from Fly A Kite. The chipboard button is a piece from Crate Paper. I don't have any mustaches in my stash (hehe) so I printed some free ones. I fussy cut the mustache and cleaned it up with a black Memento marker and some Basic Grey file tools. The button with twine is a random bit leftover from a previous project.

The "silly" chipboard is by Crate Paper. The journaling tag is by Sassafras. The background border stamp is from Miss Caroline by My Mind's Eye. If Krissy had a dollar for every time I say, "I need an alien to tie the whole look together," she could retire early. This felt alien sticker is from Sassafras.

The chipboard frame is from Crate Paper. The sentiment piece is from Stella and Rose by My Mind's Eye. The large brad is from the Robotz collection by MME. The two smaller dots are chipboard punched from the button I used at the top of the page.

Thanks for stopping by!

I LOVE the finished result! I knew that was the perfect sketch for you as soon as I saw it, too! And you ROCKED it (and even found a way to add a trademark cute little monster)!
