Seeing Stars

I feel like I am seeing a lot of stars lately :).  And you'll see more from me tomorrow! I just love stars as a masculine embellishment, and when I saw the fabulous sketch for this week's challenge at Sketchy Thursdays, I knew they would be my embellies of choice.

One of the most exciting parts of turning eight years old was starting cub scouts.  Colten could not wait until he was old enough, and now he is just eating it all up!  Twilight Camp is next week (no vampires - just an afternoon/evening day camp for the cub scouts) and he is thrilled to be going! He let me capture this one goofy grin the day of his first den meeting.

The stars I used are the Studio Calico wood veneer ones.  They are so smooth! Doodling on them was a piece of cake.  I colored them with two Mister Huey mists - barnwood and white.  As I went through my stash to find a yellow patterned paper, I realized that all of my yellow papers are really girly.  I was excited to find this sheet from Crate Paper's Toy Box line and then threw in some Pink Paislee scraps.  Colten liked it :).

Here's the sketch:

I hope you'll play along! The prize this week is awesome, so you'll definitely want to check it out (here).  I'm off for yet another end-of-the-year event at the boys' school. One more day - then summer! Enjoy your day! Tessa
