Sweet Sketch Journal

Hallo, I started out telling you about my day but decided to leave that for last in case you want to skip my whining... :) My project today is an altered sketch journal - I covered it with DP on the inside anb outside of both the front and back covers and then decorated the front cover. This sweet little fairy is from Sweet Pea Stamps and is colored with copics and spica glitter pens.I cut her out with a Spellbinders labels die and layered her to another slightly larger die. I edged the main panel in gold metallic pen. The butterfly wings behind her are done with a stencil and some glimmer mist. I added some punched glitter flowers with pearl centers. I am entering her in 2 challenges - first is for 'punches' over at Sweet Pea Stampers - And second is for In A Sweet Pea Dream challenge for 'spring' - Be sure to check them both out!!!! Ok now for the story of my day/my whining.... Well it's a good thing I had productive craft time last week because this week sure isn't shaping up too well - worked mon/tues nights, slept alot yesterday, spent alot of time yesterday trying to sort out my computer and this am ended up taking the computer back for another round of fixin.....(turns out I must have misunderstood the DH when he said he would take care of getting the wireless router encrypted......well it wasn't and my laptop was promptly hijacked once again which means I also get to change all my passwords AGAIN too...) Anyhoo so that is what I did this am - take computer in, go for a walk, get some groceries, spend a bunch of time trying to figure out the router...gave up...back to spend a bunch more time and finally got it encrypted......then this afternoon I had a class at work to 'learn' about all the new computer changes coming soon.... A bit of time changing passwords and I should get about an hour in the craft room off I go.... Take Care Tera
