Merry Monday 42


Good Monday morning, everyone!  A bright early Merry Monday sketch for you to play with:

I wanted to do something other than vintage, and I did choose some non-vintage colors and papers, but I realized that my retired rub-on is distinctly vintage!!  I just can’t get away from it, LOL!  And---there’s NO stamping on this!


I think if I had to do this over again, I would choose another color on which to put the rub-on…..but since I had no more rub-ons, I stuck with what I had!  I added a glimmer scallop and felt snowflake atop my banners, and embossed a Pink Pirouette mat to finish it off.


I hope that you’ll play along with us!  The banners, as well as the focal panel,  give you lots of creative possibilities!!!  Be sure to check out Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper, to see all the other beautiful creations this week!

How about a cute spaghetti face?  Her favorite lunch!!!
