DeLovely Monster

Happy Sketchy Thursday!  Have you seen the new sketch at Sketchy Thursdays?  I loved it!

The carnival was in town a few weekends ago.  We took the boys and spent an entire afternoon going back and forth from ride to ride.  My hubby decided to try his hand at darts and I decided I wanted a Domo.  After many well-placed darts and a trip to the ATM, I had my monster :).  Isn't he cute?

I used DeLovely papers and chipboard by Cosmo Cricket.  I LOVE this line!  It's so bright, cheerful, energetic, and perfect for carnivals and summer fun!  I picked mine up at Scrapbook Chicks, who is also featuring DeLovely in a new *affordable* kit ($19.99 with shipping - can't beat that!).

I painted my background with the lid of a Prima flowers bottle and some paintbrush splatter.  To emphasize the circle motif, I stitched some of the circles in the patterned paper with the colors from the striped paper.  I thought the circles went well with all those balloons!

Thanks for stopping by! Tessa
