Get Sketchy #83

Hey Everyone, 
Hope you are having a good week! I am glad to be home and off until Monday!  We can celebrate this weekend and remember the true reason for Easter. I am so glad I can share time with my family and friends! 

I made a few cards this week and I just wanted to share a couple with you. 
The first one is from Get Sketchy. Great sketch... I had it originally going the same direction as the sketch, but silly me... I stamped the sentiment upside down... oops... Anyways... Here is the sketch!
Here is my card, using Echo Park's "A Walk in the Park" and Unity's "Could I Be Any Cuter?".

Have a wonderful evening!

The Kraft Journal and Sketchy Thursdays: Now That Takes the Cake

Well, good evening there! I have a great story to tell you! So funny! I came home today and opened the door and I thought, "It smells like cat food!" (no joke!) And then I turn the corner to go to the kitchen and there it is! Cat food EVERYWHERE!!!!! See take a look!

I got Tiger Lily on a diet... hahahah! and she has to be the perpetrator! The diet part just cracks me up... And so their food wasn't in their container because their old food is in there and that's how the food ended up on the floor (Tiger jumped on the counter to "eat")... Well, there is a hole in the bag needless to say... I started to clean it up, but I thought wait this will be a great page, especially for the Kraft Journal's Spring Cleaning challenge! I was racking my brain while I was driving home on how I could participate in the challenge and voila!!! And I also captured a few pictures of the suspects! They always look at the camera but today... they knew they were in trouble!

So, I created a layout using Sketchy Thursdays newest sketch!

 And so here is my originallayout, using Echo Park's For the Record!
And here is my newest version... I looked at it this morning and it just wasn't what I wanted...
Hopefully, I won't need to make any more changes.

And a close up of the journaling!

Hope you have a wonderful evening and my little story brought a smile to your face!
