The Sweet Stop Saturday

Good morning everyone.  Happy Saturday!  I hope you can take some time and enjoy the weekend before the work week begins, again.  Our little guy came home sick from day care yesterday so that means the trucking home of work for the weekend.  I'm beginning to think this year will never end!  Oh well, at least I was able to spend a little extra cuddling time with my little guy, even though he wasn't feeling his best.

Today we have a new sketch for you to play along with at The Sweet Stop!  Yeah for Saturdays and new sketches!  For my project this week I used an image that I just purchased from Alicia's Little Shop, Alicia and her Cat. What a fun image to play around with and it worked just perfectly for this sketch! 

Let's start out with this week's sketch.

Here's what I came up with to play along with this sketch!  I have to tell you that I absolutely LOVE seeing all the variations thought up by everyone to follow one sketch!  It's amazing how so many different variations can be used while still staying true to the original sketch!

Materials I Used on My Project:
Copic Markers
Glossy Accents
SU Banner Punch
Spellbinder's dies
Wild Orchid Flowers

Here's a closer look at my colored image.

Stop by the challenge blog to enter your vision of today's sketch.  While there you can see the amazing projects created by the rest of the Sugar Babies!
