Ready To Shop!

Hey there!
I can't believe it's Sunday evening already! Where did the weekend go?
We were busy cleaning up from the storm that came thru on Thursday. It was a bad one, trees down all over around here and in the 2 neighboring towns. I did manage to find some scrapping time- only because it was so hot and humid- in the 90's! My way of staying cool :)
I played along with the sketch + 3 challenge over at Scrap Our Stash and combined it with the friendship challenge over at Turtle Soup. This photo was taken in October- our first selfie!  2 of my friends and I have gone on a shopping trip every year since we graduated from high school.
I used Fancy Pants Atwell and combined it with plenty from my stash. Here's a look at my page:

I created my background using a Tim Holtz stencil along with watercolor.  I added some spatters of watercolor and black mist.
I used Pink Paislee alphas that have been in my stash forever and added some stamping:

The papers are from the Atwell collection as well as the "Good stuff" sticky note. The "Snap" tab is from another Fancy Pants line.

The parenthesize and the "this" arrow are also Atwell's sticky notes. The wood veneer heart I colored with a red Gelato. The camera brad is from Simple Stories and the word stickers are Teresa Collins: 

I added my journaling on the green tag under the photo. The stars are from Simple Stories. I love their clear, black stickers:

Here is the sketch + 3 challenge:

I used Simple Stories, Teresa Collins and Ultramarine.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a terrific Monday!
