Live. Love. Laugh. - SSS163

Hi all! And a Very Happy Sweet Stop Sketch Saturday to you too! 8-) Hope you all had a Wonderful week! Mine's been busy busy creating in my crafts room, attempting to get back ahead of the 8 ball, lol..8-)  I'll also have some Exciting News and some fun upcoming projects that I can't quite share with you just yet, Yay! So stay tuned...8-) Well, today I'm back with the latest  Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge, Yay!  And since it's the third Saturday of the Month,we have a fun spin for you too, so you know there's a Terrific prize up for grabs to one very lucky winner! 8-) Our spin this time is "Fun with Textures" 8-) So without further delay, here's my take on Miss Korin's Fabulous sketch and the spin..
I stamped my Sweet LOTV Bear and Butterfly image onto Flourishes Classic White and colored this little Sweetie up with my trusty Copics. I cut him out with the help of my Classic Ovals and scalloped ovals Nesties sets and popped him up with a bit of foam tape. For my mats and BG layers, I chose a combination of kraft CS from my stash, some Adorable dp's from Authentique's Delightful collection and the help of my CB and Big Dots EF for a bit of Texture. To finish it all up, I stamped my I/O Sentiment onto layered punched circles with Memento Rich Cocoa, popped them up with a bit of foam tape and added a touch of Starlight Stickles to the Sweet little butterflies wings!.. 8-) 

And Here's Miss Korin's Awesome Sketch..
I sure hope you can play along with us at The Sweet Stop! Can't wait to see what you all come up with this week! And as always, please, make sure to stop by and take a peek at the Darling creations the rest of the Wonderfully Talented Sugar Babies have put together for your inspiration.
