I used my Silhouette to cut out the shapes. Distressed the flowers a little and used a popdot under the 'diamond' gemstone to give it a bit more dimension. Will have to save this for the right couple though, one with a sense of humor, but I just love this image and thought it was a perfect fit for an engagement card!

I love how this turned out! And I didn't have to download anything! I used the square, circle, and exclamation point (without the point) as the spinner. I colored in each of the circles using the fill color window on my Silhouette. I just made half a circle and the used the mirror image button to make the other half. I added the text and then I sent it to my printer. I just cut out the square myself. I could have used the print and cut function, but it was a square, figured it was just as easy to cut it out myself. I added a brad to the spinner and used pop dots to attach it to my board, since I didn't actually need it to spin. I used Frances Meyer hands and feet stickers for the hands and feet and voila! My square is 6" x 6" and the circles are 1" circles. It's for a layout of my nieces playing......you guessed it, Twister!

For a person who doesn't use sketches I have now used 2 in a week but I really loved the graffiti design on this one. It is the Mid-Week Madness #36 sketch from Scrapbook Steals. I believe they are on #53. I have such a hard time with the whole mixing of papers and patterns but I like the way the page turned out. I am a chronological scrapbooker and I am trying really hard to stay ahead of today's date so that I don't fall another whole year behind ;o) My lesson learned: 32 feet of adhesive tape only sounds like alot. It actually doesn't go very far at all. I guess moderation is the key.
