life's simple pleasures (interactive?)


When I saw Papertrey's challenge yesterday I figured I would be sitting this one out.  Movers and shakers is not me.

Looking for the interactive-ness?  How about count the birdies?


I used the color combo from CR84FN:

And I struggled big time with CPS sketch #26 of day 10.  Too scrapbooky for me:


But alas, that is what is so cool about sketches.  Just gather your goodies and let the sketch do the talking.  Again I hit my stash of previously stamped images and scraps and lo and behold (two hours later I must admit) this emerged:



I do likey, even though getting the balance was tough.  Hope you likey too!
