A {What's Crackin'} Sketch For You To Try

Well, today is Saturday and ya'll may think I forgot what that meant, since I haven't been playing in the sketch for a couple of weeks, but I actually had time to stamp this week! Of course it's time for Jen's Sketch For You To Try! It was a good one to get back into the swing with, too--it's super easy!

But first I have a little Audrie story (she's our 6 year old). She may have a small part in how my friend is going to spell her baby-on-the-way's name--or no, how she's NOT going to spell it. So my friend Melissa and I were talking and she told me they had decided on the name ZOE (pronounced zo-ey) for her baby girl. However, she wasn't sure how to she wanted it spelled. I told her I have always liked just Z.O.E., and told her, "it's not like anyone's going to call her ZO as in JOE". Well, her 6 year old, Abby and Audrie are best friends. The conversation between them at school the next day went something like this:
Abby: My baby sister's name is going to be ZOE. (zo-ey)
Audrie: Zo-ey? How do you spell THAT? (because she wants to know how to spell EVERYTHING these days)
Abby: Z.O.E.
Audrie: That spells ZO. (As in Joe, as in how I told Melissa, "it's not like anyone will pronounce it JOE!" Um, yeah, no one but MY daughter!) So now, Abby is insisting it be spelled ZOEY, just to make sure. That is classic 6 year old stuff right there. I was cracking up!

Speaking of cracking up, on to my SFYTT card! I used the new set from My Favorite Things, What's Crackin'. Ever since I got this set, those eggs have been "poaching" out to me to paper piece them! So easy! I colored the bunny and chick with my long lost friends, my Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I forgot how much I loved coloring that way!

I have a little bit of news about Eric, but I am running LAAAATEE this morning and need to finish this up. I'm hoping to post about it a little later tonight after we go to church.

SUSIE Q-TIP: Green Prima Flowers? Yes. Go ahead and get some (I just got a big package of just green ones from Michael's). If anything else, they make great "leaves" for the bottom layer of paper and other Prima flowers.

Check out what my other SFYTT peeps have done with this sketch and then get you need to get crackin' and play along!:
