Boy I don't know about you all but I am soooo happy it is the weekend. I just need to rest. I feel really run down. Unfortunately I don't think I will be able to find the time to rest. We have a big weekend. Jack has his last flag football game (thank goodness!--I know that is bad of me to say but I really don't like sitting outside in the cold! and Jack is also happy it is his last game). My in laws are coming to watch it then we are going out for pizza afterwards, and then the main event is Sunday. It is Michael's birthday. We are just having grandparents over to celebrate and have lunch. It will be really small but I think he will have a good time. Once that is over --hello couch!
Well as you all know I love Imaginisce and one of my favorite things to do is to take part in their monthly sketch challenges. Imaginisce has the most talented DT. I love their sketch challenges. Here is the sketch that we had to work with.
This sketch really made me step out of my comfort zone, but I must say I am really happy with the results. I used the Apple Cider Collection (yes i am totally addicted to this line!). These are pictures of Michael at my mom's house. It was just a perfect fall day and we were over visiting. Michael saw these scarecrows and just fell in love with them. He kept calling them his "friends". He would line them up and hug them and was just having a great time. So here he is with his new "friends". In the last picture he knocked them down and he was just so cute.
To make the trees I used my Silhouette. I was lucky and found this set of trees that look really similar to the trees in the paper. I cut those out and then stamped the tree tops with the friends definition from Hero Arts. I know you probably can't see it because it was down with light ink for just a soft effect. I then cut out my title again with the Silhouette. I cut it out 4 times and placed each layer on top of one another in order to create a chipboard effect. I love doing that! Next I added some buttons and twine and called it a day.
Pattern Paper: Imaginisce

What is everyone doing on this Friday night? I plan on putting the kids to bed and curling on the couch and watching t.v. Can't wait! Going to bed early! Maybe I can squeeze in some scrapping later in the weekend.
Thanks for stopping by! See ya tomorrow!
