you're the bee's knees

Does that sentiment just make you smile!! It's from WMS Compact Sentiments. There are some fabulous sentiments (not to mention the fun fonts) in this set and I paired it up with a older and classic "go to" set Holiday Label No. 14 paired up with the matching nestabilitie die!!



















Some new Authentique papers arrived "Carefree" and I'm a bit partial to bright colors... and those "bees" ... the rest was history... HAD to use this sentiment!!

Ms. Sandie's sketch...



















Layout is using this weeks'  Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge... there's still time... you have until Friday at noon... all the details HERE.  BTW... there is an opportunity to WIN a WMS... doesn't get any better than that!

Details: Moved the button to the lower left but, it's a little more balanced that way!! Hope you're having a wonderful week. Me... I'm on my way to the dry, parched, hot, humid Midwest but, going to see a lot of my family and thoroughly excited!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!
