So many things needed attention...

...there was laundry to fold, floors to vacuum, a guest room to spruce up for my dear sister who's coming to visit tomorrow (YAY!), a dog that was begging for a walk, oh yah...and dinner to get on the table. But I just couldn't resist taking some time out for the Crate Paper October sketch challenge!
Emily Pitts posted this fun sketch on the CP blog...

And here's what I came up with...

I used some Kaisercolour acrylic paint in 'yellow deep' (kindof a boring name for such a great yellow!) with a little bit of white pearl Smooch over it for a little sparkle...which, sadly, you can't really see in the photo. Two inch squares of fabulous patterned papers from Crate Paper's Restoration, Snow Day, Pink Plum and Lillian Collections create the grid - I do love how the CP collections work so well together even when they have such different themes & personalities on their own. I added a couple of vintage milk caps, a few Tim Holtz metal flowers and some other bits & baubles. A rub-on from the Pink Plum collection...'Life is Pretty Wonderful'...don't ya think that's true? It's so good for the soul to have a little creative break from the 'to do list' every once in a while. And don't worry...we did manage to eat, Miss Griffin got to go on a walk & the guest room bed has clean sheets!
