Sunday Sketch February 26th

It's Sunday and time for another Sketch!  I cannot tell you how much I am enjoying sharing my sketches again.  I feel like 2011 just kind of got away from me and am very glad to be back to the "business" of sketching.  I really enjoy seeing what many of you do with my sketches, so you know the drill, leave me a link and I'll drop by to see what you have been up to.
I have had Crate Paper's Random collection "hidden" in my scrap stash for a few months now.  I think I often hide my supplies just so that when I find them again, it is like opening a Christmas present.  Obviously today was full of fun surprises, because I also found these photos of my kids.  Based on my own experience, I recommend cleaning out the stash more often than not - LOL.
I love this denim paper and how it looks with the bright pinks, teals and mustards in the collection and especially how it looks with the pink baker's twine from The Twinery.  There is something about denim and twine...
So I have to admit that I broke down and found a typewriter.  Who knew it would be so much fun and that you can actually load die cuts of just about any shape.  This scalloped one rolled right into the typewriter and was actually easy to space the words.  Normally I write on my pages, but lately, I have been thinking it would be a nice change to use printed type, but I also know that I am not clever enough to figure out how to run these through my printer, so there you go.
I used a clear glue from Tombow to get the twine to stick to my pages in this winding pattern.


Thank you so much for stopping by!

adorble lo and a great sketch. Thanks for the scrappy tips too. I've always wondered which adhesive to use for twine. TFS:)

The layout caught my eye and made me want to do the sketch (that's how my brain works :)). Here's what I came up with: http://scrappingwithchristine.blogspot.com/2012/02/authentique-genuine.html
