Lots of Love Bear-TMS Guest Designer

A Great Good Morning to everyone. It's time for another sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. Melissa has created another great sketch for us to work with this week and snagged a great sponsor, Lexi's Doodles. Lexi has generously let the design team and since I get to be the guest designer for August we all got to choose an image to work with and as you can see after browsing around her good mix of images and sentiments I chose the Lots of Love Bear. I just can't pass up hearts.

As you can see I did a little tweaking of the sketch to stick with the heart theme. You can tweak also, flip it , change the shapes, but just be sure we can still see the basic design of the sketch.
When I printed out this little bear on his cloud of hearts they whispered in my ear "paper piece me". This pad of K&Co. paper immediately came to mind. We're often asked how we come up with our ideas for our cards and projects. I think we all carry mental pictures of our studios in our minds and that means all our supplies too, so when all the mojo is working just right, we are just able to say, "Ahh, I know what will work for this project."
So, ladies and gentlemen, hop over to Tuesday Morning Sketches and check out what the rest of the design team has come up with to get your personal mojo inspired and enter the challenge this week. You might be the lucky winner of some really neat digis from Lexi's Doodles.
