April Burlap and Buttercups Sketch Challenge

Happy Monday!
Did you have a great weekend?  I sure did!  Friday we met some friends at the Melting Pot ( a fondue restruant) for dinner.  My mom watched the boys and we had a great time!!  My favorite part is the dessert.  We ordered the chocolate turtle- a fondue with dark chocolate, carmel and pecans- and then you dip various fruits, marshmellos, and other treats.  OOOOH was it good!  Saturday we really just hung out in the family room all day.  It was very cold and rainy!  I did not even go into my scraproom.  NO motivation.  Sunday I did my work for Simply and then worked in my room just a bit.  Not a lot done because the weather was 80 degrees and sunny! 

I am up over at Burlap and Buttercups today with a new sketch and challenge.  The sketch is really fun and the twist this month is really easy- use some mist or paint on your project! The prize package is to die for if you are a My Mind's Eye fan.  So please stop on over and take a look at the sketch and then maybe enter!  You don't need the kit to win!

Here is my take on the sketch.  At the end of the summer we all went to Kings Island, our local amuesment park.  My mom and hubby went on the new ride the WindSeeker.  It goes really high and spins you around.  I love rides- the faster the better but I do have a little bit of fear of heights.  I decided to stay with the boys and my mom and hubby went on up- the Dare Devils!


Supplies
the April kit from Burlap and Buttercups
papers- lily bee
embellishments- mme, lily bee
twine- doodlebug

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with  another layout.  See you tomorrow!
Have a wonderful and crafty day!

To answer your question~Shimelle has taught me so much about design, I love her videos{she is hands on)But the main reason I stick with her ~ she is one of the BEST SB'ers I have come across and she teaches with ease!! So talented and she SB's 4x6 photos!! Give her a look up!!!

I'll have to check out the sketch! Great page! I can't do rides anymore or I'd be a tad sick.

Absolutely love, love, love this layout! The colors, patterns and embellishments are fantastic! Did you make that little banner or was it pre-made?

Your weekend sounds perfect!

Great banner work, Mary Pat! I love the mix of color and patterns on here too. We tried The Melting Pot for the first time last month. We never got to dessert though because we were too full from dinner. LOL!

OMGoodness, Melting Pot is my favorite restaurant! :) It's our special occasion go-to place! For me, it's a toss up between the cheese course and the dessert for my favorite part ... and the "Love Martini" is right up there too! :) Your layout is darling! :)

Tammy said...
