A Fish Ahoy!
Sweet Sketch 61

Hello Everyone!
Arlana has such a sweet sketch this week! You will love creating with this one! I did! I found these fun papers at a small independent craft store here in Tacoma called "Scrap That!"
I also found these cute turquoise droplets that I thought would give a great water effect! For my three elements on the left side of the sketch, I used the tackle basket and two fish!....Well, it kind of works! I also added some jute to the fishing pole.
The fishing gear is from Arlana stash in her craft room! I really should take pictures and give you a sneak peak of her room. I do believe that there in not another person who has a craft room like hers. I am like a little kid in a candy store when I visit! Here craft room is over a three car garage with an additional large storage room and three closets for storage! She has four banquet tables set up for classes plus her work station but would you believe that Arlana, Nancy and I completely feel up all the table space when we are crafting!
I just love this image from Di's Digi Downloads. It is called "A Fish Ahoy." I added stickles to the fish and crystal effect to the bobber! I just love Diane's images. Di's Digi Downloads is our sponsor this week. I know you will have the greatest delight as you look around her shop. Diane is offering 5 free digis to our weekly winner. That could be you!!!! So stop over to SSW and check out all the fun eye candy from our DT showing off some of those sweet images from Di's Digi Downloads.

You paper , water droplest and embellishements are just so sweet. I love your perfect colors. thanks for all you do for me.Love ya and have a sweet day!!!

  8. Hi Judi your card is adorable as soon as I saw it I loved it especially the colours and your embellishments. I should come to the US and visit Arlana's craft room rather than going to Australia. I hope to do some craft shopping over there. Things are much the same there especially the selection and I think our prices are a little cheaper than theirs especially when your buying in Australian dollars.
    Will email you soon what to pick your brain.
    Have a great weekend.
