SMOOTH OPERATOR – Twisted Sketch #62


Twisted Sketch #62 is now live over at www.twistedsketches.com.  The “twist” for this week’s sketch was “SMOOTH” – I thought these photos of our little “Smooth Operator” would be perfect for this!  Here is my 5 year old all dressed up for a wedding!  He thought he was pretty “smooth.”  I think that he is going to be quite the ladies man when he grows up!

You can find a direct link to this week’s sketch HERE.   Come over and join in! Let the “twists” get you  thinking OUTSIDE the box,  use up some of your stash, & get some pictures scrapped all at the same time.  It’s a WIN-WIN situation.  Be sure and link up your layout under the comment section of the sketch you are working on.  I would love to see your interpretation, and I check out each and every layout  linked up!!! Some come on, whatcha waiting for?!?

Yes, those are discs from a ViewFinder from ViewMaster (sorry kids!) I picked those up at a garage sale for “next-to-near-nothing!” Woo Hoo!!!  I punched circles out of patterned paper to cover the centers!

I hand-doodled part of the title to coordinate with the Love Elsie doodled b/w paper.

Journaling on this reads: “You may only be 5 years old, but you are already a little smooth operator – Uncle Mike had to laugh when he told you that your were fast, and very seriously, you pointed your finger at hims and said, “Yeah! I am fast.”

Other supplies used here but not already mentioned above, include:  Jillibean Soup paper; Bazzill’s Just the Edge loop border; foam circles (cut apart) from American Crafts; Cosmo Cricket title letters (painted red); a large green photo corner from Heidi Swapp; various buttons from my stash (many of which come in my monthly Scarlet Lime kits – they don’t skimp on the buttons!!!); and Janlynn embroidery floss.

TFL!  Please be sure and subscribe to my blog so that you can get an e-mail direct to your inbox anytime I post a new project!!! Have a great & blessed day!!!!

    Love the viewfinder discs. (Did we call them discs as children?) Really like the whole layout, buttons inside the alphas and all.
