Friendly Sweet Stop


Well, well what do you know...it is Sweet Stop time! Is it Saturday yet? Not sure why it has been a rough week...maybe it is because my husband just told me that he will need to be working longer hours and most Saturdays for about a month. I think the looming thought of little to no breaks is a huge weight on my shoulders. I love my kids, but I get worn out from them sometimes. Between the chatterbox boy that literally never stops talking or asking questions to the starting to talk but still screams far too much little girl I feel like I could go crazy some days! So I may be using my therapy sessions on here more often! Not feeling very chatty this evening (the whole huge weight thing), so let's get right to the topic at hand.

This week's sketch, Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #45, was a tougher one for me...remember I am an engineer by trade, so putting things askew is not something I do very often. But that is why I love sketch challenges...it forces me to do things that I wouldn't do very often! I threw a weird, in my opinion, color combo together. Started out normal with Kiwi Kiss, Melon Mambo, and Bermuda Bay, but then I threw in the Blush Blossom because the largest button I had for my flower happen to be that color. But I think it works...or is it a little strange? Anyway I used the Women of Life stamp set by Papertrey Ink making the largest flower more of my focal point. The ribbon is by Offray (from Wal-Mart...love it when I find cool ribbons there cuz I can sneak them in the grocery bill!).

Now go check out the creations by the other Sugar Babies: Ann, Audrey, Candace, Jodi, Julie, Lisa, Nancy, Nicole, Renata, and the Sugar Mama, Korin. Leave them some love and the create a card of your own and link it up to the Sweet Stop Blog! Have fun and thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
