Cuddle Me Better
Sweet Sketch 47
Sweet Sketch Wednesday
Sponsor: Busy Beauties Boutique

I found this adorable image on Busy Beauties Boutique. Isn't he just so adorable! I do want to cuddle him better! Don't you? It was fun using the crystal effects on the sucker, themometer and the water bottle cap! I haven't used it for awhile and it really adds some fun dimension!

This is the sketch we are using this week at SSW! While I was in Utah in March I was able to attend the Scrapbook USA Expo. It was my first time and wow did I have a good time with Nancy and Arlana! One of my favorite finds was at the Sizzix booth....where we each purchased the Winter Set which included this large polka dot. It was so perfect with this card!
