JBE067 Mindscape Pink

I'm late. I know. Thanks for your patience! ;) This is the sketch for Jacksonbelle Tuesday. I found it to be a bit of a toughie. I could have fit a sentiment in that little oval, now that I think about it, but I really had my mind set on using a new Inkadinkado set that is SO FABULOUS!!!! And I just could not get my head out of that idea.



I finally got this baby done! We had unexpected, delightful company yesterday and I really don't like turning people away from my door because I 'have to' stamp. I'm trying to get ahead a little, but it's not working yet. Several people have assured me that when my children go to school next week, things will be different then. Hmmm... We'll see. I haven't been alone in 15 years and I may spend the next few weeks babbling incoherently... Or, my planets may align and I will get all these little things done and get ahead and have a clean house to boot. I'm not holding my breath.


The real story is this close up of the butterfly. I blinged it with stickles and blingz. I stamped this image (btw did you notice the butterfly is made of fairies and flowers?!!!! Get outta here!!!!) with chalk ink on designer paper to give it some depth since the dp was all smooshy and smudgy already.

Yup. Done like dinner! The rest of the Jacksonbelle Rockstar dt have totally rocked this challenge, so go take a boo and leave them some love!!!
