Paper Players Sketch #88-{You're Tweet!}

Sunday is here and that means tomorrow I am back to work after a wonderful week off for Spring Break. My husband and I went away for a few days and so I have spent this morning, catching up on comments. We went to a lovely lodge that is located near the ocean and enjoyed whale watching and being outside, walking along the beach. The weather was amazing! 

This week we have a terrific sketch by the talented Ann Schach! I loved working with it and I know you will enjoy it as well!  I wanted to play with a new stamp I recently found from Pink Cat.  It is called "Love Birds on a Swing".  I think it is super cute. The reason I chose the muted tones was because it matched my BRAND NEW PAPER from Pink Paislee called "Indigo Bleu"!  I LOVE this paper and what is more, I love ALL their paper. I found their product through Mona Pendelton. Thank you Mona!  I have ordered 2 more of their paper packs, I would say I am hooked! LOL!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Pink Cat Studios  "Love Birds on a Swing"
Papers: Baja Breeze, Sage Shadow, Whisper White, Pink Paislee "Indigo Bleu"
Inks: Memento Black, Copics
Extras: Lace Ribbon from Scrapbook Essentials BC, Baja Breeze Button (retired from SU), 
Rectangle Nesties, SU Decorative Label Punch for Sentiment

My image is coloured with Copics. Sorry this is not the best picture, I had trouble trying to capture the colouring, it is actually darker IRL. The flash washed it out it a bit.  We hope that you will join the Paper Players Challenge this week!  Please be sure to visit the other DT Members to see their wonderful creations!  Enjoy your week!  I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things!  I have decided to begin a learning unit on Gray Whales with my class after this week's adventures, I am excited to get started!  This is also our last week with talented GD Sherry Eckblad, thank you Sherry for your hard work as our March Guest Designer!!!
