Some Cosmo Cricket Fun

There is still time to get in on the Giveaway here!

I spent some time getting back into CC's recent lines, "Social Club" and "Up Cycle".  While I totally loved the papers that I purchased from the lines, they are not the easiest to work with.  Lots of pattern going on!!  After completing these two LO's I decided to break up the remaining papers to use with other lines.  Sometimes a little bit of busy mixed with something calm makes for a perfect balance.

Love this photo of Richard, Susan and Rob!  There is just something about photos taken of people walking away that I like.  We were at a community park looking for some caches and it was the most beautiful Spring afternoon.

The sketch I used is designed by Aphra Bolyer for Creative Scrappers.

Next I decided to dabble back into an old time 8.5x11 LO.  They always come together quicker for me although they leave me with the feeling that there just should be more to it.  Oh, out comes the tortured artist who lives within me!  hee hee  The teal and grey patterned paper is one of my all time faves of this last CHA.  Such a retro vibe to it.  Just can't get the 60's out of this one!

A candid shot of Diane seems to be my only chance of her not pulling a face.

Here is the sketch I based it on but I unfortunately forget who created it.  I think it may have been someone on a kit club team.  Thank you to whoever you are. :)

Happy Scrapping!!  Jen :)
