Just playing around...

Hi everyone!  I am enjoying my mini-vacation.  I cleaned my apartment all day yesterday, it felt so good!!  I know, did I just say that about cleaning?  I hate cleaning, but I was tired of mess, my children too often use our home as a dumping ground and I got tired of hearing my own voice saying "pick that up.... put that away.... why couldn't you just put that in dishwasher..."  I'm sure you can relate.  Well, I just couldn't take anymore, so I cleaned from top to bottom and it felt really good.  Now I can spend the rest of the weekend playing.

I kicked off the playing part with this....

I'm sorry the picture is so bad.  I don't like taking pictures during the day - there are so many shadows to deal with!  But I really wanted to play along with some challenges.  It's so rare that I get to play with some of these challenges.  So I used the sketch from CASual Fridays, the colors from Color Throwdown and I used my one of favorite stamp company's stamps, CC Designs, and All That Scraps Wednesday challenge doing an Anything Goes challenge.  Why I like their Anything Goes, is it still has some specifics so one can't just fit.  I am there on purpose!

Speaking of challenges, we only have a few players so far at Tuesday Morning Sketches and great prize up for grabs!  Come play along.

Have a happy Friday!
