CAS[E] this Sketch #134

Chrissy has done it again, folks!  Challenged my little creative brain and it needed it! Take a looky-loo at this sketch:

Mind blown?
 
I'm finally getting the chance to break out my July SSS kit!  It was waiting patiently in my stack of mail when I arrived home from our trip.  It hasn't seen the light of day since ... and it is so full of wonderful Oceanside goodies. 
 
I've created a little whirlpool of the patterned papers from Authentique right down to the bottom of the sea.  Add one cute little anchor paperclip and, AHOY Matey... okay - she's gone overboard!! But still CAS... I think?
 

 
The sentiment is a die cut from PTI Wet Paint II ... 'anchor me' compliments of Word and my PC.
 
That's a wrap for me today ... can't wait to see what Chrissy has inspired you to make. See you in the CTS #134 gallery!
 
Thanks for hanging out with me for a bit today - always tickles me when you do...

Sweet mix of papers, and I love that you tied a silver string between your you and the anchor clip. Fabby font on your sentiment as well.

Oooh, such cool blending of DP, Michele ... love those neutrals with just the pops of colour around that cute anchor (and it's little rope!) ... simply splendid! Hugs, Anita :)
