High Hopes Challenge #9-Merry Fishes

First off, I would like to wish a very Happy Thanksgiving to my cousins in Utah (Hi Jason, Lynnise, Erick, McKenzie & Hyrum), all of my U.S. SBS 15 sisters and of course all of my American blogging friends. I hope you have a fabulous day with your families and friends!

Oh my goodness, the High Hopes Challenge this week is an awesome sketch by Ila! I used some of my new SU paper called Frosty Day and I really like it. I already had colored this image with other paper in mind and then that didn't work out, so I'm happy this paper coordinates so well!!

I used some Shimmerz on his hat brim and pom pom and my Sakura Stardust pen on the fishies a little and then covered the snowflake diamond stickles. I just bought the Martha Stewart snowflake and leaf sprig punches and really like them...I haven't been out and about yet to find the new border punches, but one of these days I should get there!!

The kids have skating tonight and then will miss next week as they are over at my Mom and Dad's while we are on vacation, so I need to run and get some lunch and then have a snooze....Kirsten already said she wants to have a sleep when Landon does, so that works for me. They both actually have a cold and a runny nose, so a snooze would do them good!!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a super afternoon/evening!!
