Deconstructed Sketch #85 {All You Need Is Love and lots of Pebbles Paper!}

Playing with new goodies is always fun especially when you HAVE to have them, because a fellow blogger has used them and has made you NEED them! Let me share the blogger's photo...

"The Enabler"

I happen to live close by to a stamper who I admire! She is also a teacher and we met for the first time in the Fall quite by chance! We were both at the same professional development day and I happened to win a door prize. The announcer called my name in a gym full of 300 people. So up I went to get my prize and when I got back to my seat, there was this smiling gal, looking at me as if she knew me! Well it took me not even a minute when she said "Hi Lesley, I am Laurel"! I couldn't believe it!!! Laurel Seabrook! There she was! Ha! We had a good chat and again, I thought how wonderful the blogging and the card making community can be!


Fast forward to Jen's fun sketch and immediately I KNEW I needed to use some Paper I had seen on Laurel's blog right before is from Pebbles and I LOVED it! I bought the 6 x 6 paper pad of Seen and Noted because of Laurel and I am so excited to use it today on my graphic Valentine card! 

Stamps: Hero Arts
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Papers: Pebbles {Seen and Noted}, Flourishes White CS, Basic Black {SU!}
