Its A Beautiful Day....

Good Evening,
I have been enjoying this beautiful weather we're having! Ben and I went up to my daddy's orchard and sprayed the peach trees today. The bloom are all gone now, so the peaches will begin to grow in the next few weeks. He always has the best peaches, I suppose they are the best because they are grown on the hill just above my backyard!

Today, I bring you the weekend sketch from Practical Scrappers. Now I did take a few liberties with the sketch. I began with a card and mid-stream, changed my idea and ended up with a gift bag! At any rate, it was completely inspired by Gloria's sketch below.
Here's the gift bag, I told you I took a few liberties.....sometimes sketches just need to give you a place to start. I used the rainbow and girlie turtle images from Creations by Penny, our fabulous sponsor this month at Practical Scrappers. She has a brand new forum, please visit and say hello!
So I used the fabby digis, some Martha glitter, watercolor paper, pencils, I embossed the blue cardstock and used ink from and a sticker from CTMH. The bag, tissue, and ribbon are from the dollar store. I hope you enjoyed the fun bag, oh and don't forget, we are having our DT Call at Practical Scrappers until April 18, please stop by! We'd love to see your talents!
Blessings,

  5. Thanks for playing along with my sketch! I also think that sketches are STARTING points and you can go your own way once your creative ball gets rolling. I love to see all the different takes with the same sketch!
