Kisses Free - Hugs $1.00



I haven't played in 2 Sketches 4 You challenge in weeks & sure have missed it! With so many challenges out there, how can one possibly do them ALL? I like to try & rotate them out as much as I can & usually base them on being truly inspired. Well the bonus card & sketch by DT member Ashlid did just that for me this week!

I thumbed through my pictures of my niece Gabby the other day to do a few scrapbook pages (may as well take a few with me on my trip next month for her album!) and remembered this one - thinking it would be perfect to use with Melanie's Little Tees & JustRite small letters set

I decided to play up the hugs & kisses aspect of the page theme & used the solid heart from Little Tees and a big hug from Cuddles and Hugs to make my cardstock patterned. The XOXO is JustRite Curlz Alphabet.

The journaling on the pull tab says, "One day when Gabby gave her Nino Micky a kiss good-bye, he said, 'Can I have a hug too?' and Gabby said, 'Yea $1.00'. It made everyone laugh! So when Nino Micky & Nina Andrea saw this shirt at Target, they just had to get it for her!!"

This is really cute Donna! Your niece is adorable, isn't being an aunty the best?:-) I love the story you included, someday she is really going to appreciate all the effort you put into making these! Thanks for posting that birdhouse ornament for me, that was exactly the one I was looking for!

I started a card with some little cropped tees awhile ago(but never completed it!), they look just like kids shirts in these proportions, don't they?! too cute with your added sentiment, even cuter story, hee!!

I LOVE this card and the picture of Gabby! She saw it and said, "How cute!" Her favorite color - PINK! And her favorite t-shirt! It doesn't get any better. She always gets a kick out of seeing herself on the computer - it makes her feel like a movie star! Thank you, Auntie Donna, for all the pretty cards you send me - Luz you, Gabby!
