~heart~ u, then & now

It's Thursday and you know what that means!!!!  SKETCHES!!!!!  Today not only do I have a Sketchy Thursdays sketch, but also a Design Dollies one.

This week's Sketchy Thursday sketch:

The layout:

January 2011 issue

Every single thing on this layout (except the thread) is from the Ninja Addicts "Three Little Birds" kit, which is incidentally the prize on this month's Sketchy Thursdays Guest Design Team ChallengeYou have until next Saturday 3/20 to play along!! 

I just love all the touchable elements.  That giant fabric & tulle flower is awesome!!!!

Lacey, sparkley, shiney.  Yum!  That blue sparkley paper by American Crafts is amazing.  It's the thickest cardstock I've ever encountered.  It was even a bit hard to cut out the "u" and it's not even that small.

How cute is this felt & fabric birdie.  Toooooo cute!!!  Ally & Nely did such an awesome job with their debut kit!!

Incidentally, this has always been one of my favorite pictures.  I turned my bedroom into a little photo shoot one morning when they were so much smaller and clicked away.  I don't know why this particular pic stands out to me.  I've never been able to put my finger on it.  It just does. 

Be sure to hop on over to the Sketchy Thursdays blog to see what our amazingly talented Design Team made for your inspiration.  And up for grabs this week...some yumminess from Sweet Twee Lab.  Be sure to check out their etsy shop.  Lots of lip-smackin goodness there!

This week Design Dollie Kristy outdid herself with the sketch:

It was a Ninja Addicts sort of crafty evening:

January 2011 issue

This one is almost entirely made from the Addicts' "Don't Get It Twisted" kit.  Only the base paper (My Mind's Eye) and alpha stickers (My Little Shoebox) aren't from the kit. 

Again, had lots of fun with texture.  Cloth, tulle, stitching, glitter.  Yummy!!!  I know it's hard to see but the two pics are our first posed family pic in 2006 and a posed family pic in 2009.  (Yes, I just noticed I wrote 2004 on the layout...gonna have to correct that.  Little girl didn't even come along until the end of 2005!)

I love how this whole kit is so bright and whimsical. 

And who wouldn't love this adorable Fimo cloud friend?  Smile!!! 

Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT made over on the Dollies site for your inspiration. 

Thanks for stopping by!
