Whoooootin "Saturday" Hi!

It's Saturday and time for Lauren's Sketch! I absolutely love this sketch! I'm actually thinking about using it for my Christmas cards this year.....wouldn't it be perfect to use a picture as the background and the sentiment on the circle! I ran out of time to play with it so I'll have to work on that this week!

I'm typing this in the hospital as we wait on Ethan getting his biopsy. (It's not actually Saturday, but Saturday mornings at our house are too busy so I did this early!) I got to use my new Papertrey Ink Set "Wise Owl". I love it and can't wait to play with it more. The sentiments with it are great too! I love the one that says "Happiness is not having what you want, it is wanting what you have." Isn't that a great saying!

The colors I used are mellow moss, chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, and close to cocoa from SU. The background paper is something new from Basic Grey called "Mellow". The ribbon is from Papertrey Ink and the dew drops are from Michaels....although the last couple trips I can't find them there so hopefully I won't run out anytime soon! I broke out the sewing machine too for the first time in weeks. I love the added touch of the stiching!

Hope you give this sketch a try. Have a great weekend! We are going to try to keep busy and keep our minds off of Ethan's biopsy results. They say they won't have them back until probably next Thursday! Thanks for taking a peek! Don't forget to stop by the other gal's sites to see their creations for Lauren's sketch.
