Pencil Lines #120 - Celine Navarro

My gorgeous, talented friend, Celine Navarro is our Guest for sketch #120. Where do I even begin? She is da-bomb. She probably creates in her sleep, this girl. So insanely mojo-full and inspiring at all times. Not only that, she is super sweet too! Man! I love her! *grins*

My layout :D

i have you *hambly screen prints*

I have him on my side, when when the whole world and its odds are against me, I have him. That man. Without him, I don't think I'll even be here, scrapping and sharing with all of you. When someone tells me how great he is, I just grin like an idiot and agree with them. Lucky me. Hahaha!! Nuff said? LOL. Mushy, I know. . .:P

Close ups.

close up 1

My love affair with bird and their cages. . . still going strong. Thickers were originally lime green, painted red with MM Acrylic Paint in Cranberry. My go-to red.

close up 2

Bird, again. (see what I mean?)

close up 3

Layered the overlays together to get that outline. Yellow and Teal.

What else?

I've been playing 'teacher' with the kids, a lot. We're getting a lot done these days. *grins* Don't you just love spelling lists? *shudders*

and oh! Neha can ride on two wheels! I am so proud of her. Only took her two days too. I rode two wheels when I was 11 mind you, after numerous dives into the not so dry drain in front of my mom's house. She got to two wheels with minimal injuries, only a few scratches here and there. I need to take photos of her riding, soon. I promise. That fateful day, it was already dark outside. We'll do it soon. I know she will want to show off to all of you! *grins*

Such a beautiful LO. Love the colors, Sasha. I may have to lift the design of this LO, with your permission of course!

Wow!! Neha, superb. Give yourself a pat on the back. Well done.
My 7 year old learn to ride the scooter during the holidays and want to ride it to school everyday!
They just have that " feeling of achievement" when they learn something new don't they? You can see it in they face!

Peggy said...

Sasha I'm in love with this LO, it's perfect in every way! And I share your love for birds, it seems that when a bird is in a LO, I'm loving it. I went to a scrapbooking store yesterday and asked for the hambly papers, and they didn't have it ... shocking isn't it!!!

Sophia said...

I totally heart this LO! Great way of using those Thickers by painting them the shade of color that you want them to be!

I just can't get enough of your using Hamblys and birds and bird cages.

Hooray for your girl to be able to ride the two-wheeler from now on! It's a really proud moment yah?

Audrey Pettit said...

LOL! Now I'm really laughing about the comment you wrote me on my blog.......about breaking out Neha's bike and going for a ride. You silly!
Love, love your page, Sasha! how cool that you have such a great guy in your life and what a fun page. Even a some-what simple layout is absolutely peppered with details from you.

Congrats on Neha riding on two wheels. I remember when my son finally got it. Such a fun day for sure.

And Sasha, that is such a clever idea to paint the thickers! Great inspiration.

Brenda Hurd said...

i love the mushiness! The layout is fabulous and i am so on that sketch. Love it. And yay for 2 wheels - what an accomplishment - can't wait to see pictures!!

Coochies & All said...

Gorgeous layout Sasha! You make simple layouts look absolutely stunning - that's being gifted girl! :)
And for your information, I can't cycle and I'm nearing 40. My dad and a good friend tried their VERY best to teach me but they gave up, saying there's something wrong with the part of my brain that controls balance. Please congratulate Neha for me and tell her my story - she'll be proud of herself. :)
