Fab Friday #41

It'a Fab Friday, peeps!!! I love me a good Friday ... and I have today OFF of work!! HooRAY!!! Not sure where my brain has been lately, but I almost FORGOT that we were due for another round of Fab Friday goodness ... but I was MORE than happy to dig into my box of catalog preview goodies to come up with something!!

Like ... this octopus ... how freakin' ADORABLE is HE??? What IS it about an octopus with a smiley face that just makes ya happy?? Not quite sure, but this one fills the bill!!

I cheated a TINY bit on this one ... I used SU's old spiral punch on the DSP ... could NOT help myself!!! The sparkly star was leftover from the ones I used on my LAST Fab Friday card ... LOVE me my Silhouette so I can cut out WHATEVER I WANT!!

And if I'm being TOTALLY honest, I was STUMPED by the sketch we had this week!!! It was one of those things that I had to STARE at for a good ol' long time until an idea sparked in my creaky lil' brain!!! Which is one of the things I LOVE about a challenge ... gets you OUTTA your "zone" and puts you somewhere you might otherwise NOT go!

Paper:  Night of Navy, Real Red, Whisper White, Maritime DSP, Silver Glimmer DSP

:) I think you did awesome with the sketch! Fun colors and choices of stamp products! The embossed background looks like bubbles in the water the octopus is in. :)
