Pencil Lines #109 - Sasha Holloway

November is here, so is Sketch #109 for Pencil Lines. We have Sasha Holloway joining us this week. We're so blessed with amazing guests week after week! Sasha H is not a exception! The talent inside this girl.... words failed me! *gush* I could go on and on, but really, I am still thinking how lucky I was, when the stars alligned a while ago, coz that was when we found each other. I adore her, and she knows that :) Rock on Girl!

The gallery is looking awesome too with layouts from our readers! You guys rock! Thank you, seriously, thank you for playing along and sharing your talent with us.

Not Made For Walking

a closer look (rephrasing my usual sentence here... LOL)

close up 1

Some Love, Elsie goodness, a stapled sticker from MM Passports collection, buttons (my love affair with buttons, a complicated one.. *winks*), machine stitching, pop dots and a 7G sticker. Those 97% sticker sheet, will they ever finish? I stopped buying so long ago and I still have them! talk about value for money :D

close up 2

Arrow stamp from Fiskars, embossed with Tim's Distress Embossing Powder in Shabby Shutters. Love that green. I have no idea if the embossing effect is supposed to look like that, because to be frank, this is the first time I'm using Distress Embossing Powder. Love it anyway. I will be on youtube soon looking for demo videos *grins* Love that green. Did I say that already? LOL!

close up 3

Popped some part of the alpha stickers, i now think i should halve the height of the pop dots, maybe it'll look better. The black alphas on acetate, I've had those since December '06 *grins* If you notice, I am not the 'mix your alphas' kinda girl, unlike Laura, who rocks and mixes her alphas expertly, so to get those on there, well, let's just say I gave myself a pat or two on the back. LOL.

Do you wanna read the journaling? *grins* LOL, It's silly, really. But really, a huge lesson learnt. Here goes :-)

Cute shoes. Achy feet. Sounds familiar?
Please do not ever make the same mistake I did.
I bought those for our San Francisco – Seoul trip in June ’08.
They’re cheap and silky to the touch.
They’re a pleasure to wear on the flight and nowhere else!
They’re too soft that you can feel the pavement beneath you.
Not good, that much I can tell you. Not good.
They’re definitely not made for walking.
Pretty, yes. But nope, not made for walking.

Have you seen HSM 3? I love it. The sounds and steps and energy.. just awesome. Such an upbeat movie, I was practically dancing in/on/with my seat. (ha-ha-ha-ha!!) You don't have to know that I cried too, during the said "upbeat movie"! Hah! They (The Husband and The Girls) laughed at me! How dare! I'm sensitive, so what? I cry when I'm happy, I cry when I'm touched/sad/angry/shaken/(insert other emotions here).So here's me, sticking my tongue out at them :P! :D

I am a woman with a plan today. I have a list and I'm going shopping! See you soon!

You ever take some pattern paper and glue it down on a pack of smokes so when someone says, "Hey, Cleetus, can i bum a smoke off you?" you pull out your smokes and they see the creative paper and realize you're really just a sensitive male just tryin to express your creative side?

laura vegas said...
