Sketchy Thursdays

When I saw this sketch at Sketchy Thursdays I immediately thought I am not near clever enough to swing it. It just looked so darn hard. Like a really intricate quilt block... Dresden Plate perhaps.

Then the part of my that gets my back up at the very thought of, "too hard" decided I had to drop everything and give it a try. No surprises there.

Since I was still basking in the glow of a truly awesome visit with Tiffany and family I decided to take my very imperfect photos (it's been SO DARK here) of their stay and make a LO.

The rules were:

1. Be based on the sketch above (done!)
2. Include at least 5 pictures (got it!)
3. Include a bit of sparkle (red sparklies!)

(click to see it full size)

Again, sorry for the dark and angled picture. It's the best I could swing with no sun and heavy winds. Oy! How much fun is the new Circa 1934 paper from Cosmo Cricket

Here's a few close-ups:

Thanks for popping by :-)

Don't forget to pop by Tiff's blog, you could win some of my wrinkle ribbon, a $100 GC to Two Peas and a lot more from the different guest bloggers.
