On Top of the World...

This week is a big week for me -- I get to finally reveal a huge secret that I've been keeping, even though I wanted to shout it from the rooftops! To find out more, drop by later today or if you are a subscriber to TSB, check your inbox for my fun news...

In the meantime, the wonderfully fabulous Kazan has created another sketch for you over at 2 Sketches 4 You. Head over the to play and be inspired by all the beautiful creations by the Design Team!

For my take on the sketch, I turned it sideways and jumped off from there. This wonderful sentiment seemed to fit my "on top of the world" mentality, so this was particularly fun for me to create. I began by punching (a lot!) of hearts...I adore punches. Hey, I'm just a bit lazy and they do come out so perfectly. I used a die-cut circle as a guideline, layering and adhering all my little hearts into the shape of a globe. After stamping my sentiment and adding some ribbon and bling to my embossed background, I mounted two bright red heart "people." I'm feeling pretty much on top of the world right now. I hope you are too!
