Hi everyone!  It’s actually Tuesday night as I’m typing. I’m preposting this entry for tomorrow (today/Wednesday for you) in a bit of a hurry.  I’ve been busy helping my fourth grader with a mountain of math homework (his least favorite) and it’s a “must-see” tv night…American Idol, Lost and, finally, the season premier of Deadliest Catch.  (I’ve been impatiently awaiting the return of Deadliest Catch, but I heard some very sad news this morning regarding that show….I think it will be difficult to watch, knowing what’s coming.)  I also have some prep work to do yet for my daughter’s afterschool scrapbook meeting tomorrow.  Eek!  🙂

Kraftin’ Kimmie is this week’s sponsor at Card Positioning Systems and so I have a quick little sample to share.  Well, the coloring was not so quick, but I love having a layout right there to work with.  Layouts are always my biggest struggle.

I chose my favorite Kraftin’ Kimmie image, Charlotte from the Moonlight Whispers line.  She’s colored in with Copics and then I added ground/grass with Prismacolor pencils.  The paper is new from My Mind’s Eye Quite Contrary line.  I picked up a bit in Arizona but now I wish I’d gotten more. I **love** it.

KKPUC3I used Charlotte’s little accompanying ragdoll image and a phrase from Kimmie’s Coffee Sentiments to complete the inside.

Be sure to check out the CPS blog!  I believe there will be a prize to be won.  And Kimmie is giving away an extra dose of Kimmie stamps if you use the CPS sketch, KK stamps and link to CPS and the KK challenge blog.   You can find those details here  (after 7 a.m. EST).

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!   🙂
