we'll be ending this year with a little gathering with some close friends... more than likely reminiscing about the year and our plans for the upcoming new year... stuffing our faces with yummy food and some bubbly... and then we'll line the street (one house up and down from ours) with fireworks and blow out the old and bang in the new... it's tradition... my friends know that besides our chosen dress code, they must bring a favorite dish and a roll of firecrackers (each person, children included) to line the street at midnight... my poor neighbors get smoked out every year... =D our fireworks are usually the last to blow out on our street... LOL...
yah, yah, enough bambling right?! hehehe.... okay so, i finished sketch 3 from the 12 days of sketches at TGF... somehow i managed to skip that one and i'm not sure why... but here it is... i LOVE shopping Anya as i'm a shopaholic... haha! so i knew i was going to use her for atleast one of the sketches... played with an orange and brown combo, which i'm starting to love... but after coloring her, i couldn't find any pretty orange DP to use... so, i stuck with a brown... i did mat the brown DP with orange CS though... i stamped the bags a 2nd time and colored and cut them... added some tissue paper to the first stamped image and then ovelapped/popped on the colored bags... added buttons and rhinestones for embellies and the blank panel will carry a sentiment when i figure out who to give this to... i just love the way this one turned out... i think my fave of my complete ones so far.... hmmm, i wonder what's in he bags?! LOL
here is sketch 8.... i'm not so sure i like this one and have been trying to decide if i should redo this sketch... if time permits, i just might... i like it, but then i don't.. LOL, silly me... i love Angel Anya because she is so versatile... remember seeing her a lot for Christmas?! i just can't put her away... very simply done... rounded up some DP from DCWV... all in green... added both diamond and christmas tree green stickles to Anya... use the sentiment for the Shepard Boy set, and added rhinestones to the flower middles... see, now i'm liking it again... haha!
