Sketch Stretch-HSS 178

It's sketch week over at Hand Stamped Sentiments and I took some liberties.  First, here's the sketch:

I'm a scrapbooker.  I try to make cards, but it's just such a small work space.  I made a card.  Hated it.  SO, I thought I'd make a layout. And thankfully, I love it!

I kept the circles and the speech bubbles...only I added a few more! Anybody else remember stickers that were in the shape of bubbles with sayings in them that you could add to your photos...guess I've been scrapping for quite some time!

These kitties were behind our flower box on our front step one morning before school.  Our kitty was  meowing like a beast at the door!  I took the girls to school and when I returned they were gone.  We saw them occasionally the next few weeks and tried in vain to catch them with no luck.

The layout is very messy, which isn't me, but I've seen so many doodling layouts that I love so I decided to give it a whirl.  It came together quickly!  I used the circle framelits to cut my photos.  I mixed up Summer Starfruit reinker/alcohol and gave it some good flicks across my DSP.  I added some gray floss to give it some more texture.

The girls just came by and gave the layout two thumbs up!, and couldn't stop talking about this day.  This is really why I love scrapping.  Thanks for letting me stretch the sketch!!
