once upon a time... the magic kingdom of 2sketches4you there lived a divine sketch called kazan's 17:

but princess lauren did not make a card for it,
and so the sketch grew very very sad and had to go into therapy.

...but then...

realizing the unfairness of the poor sketch's plight
princess lauren DID make a card, afterall.
(although, admittedly, it was a very strange and rather morphed version!)

and there was rejoicing throughout the land!!!
and also

which inspired even MORE rejoicing...although some of the second round of rejoicing had to be done in elastic-waist pants...but the people of the land did not mind because they had positive body images and anyway they are back into their routine at the they can afford a treat or two.

eventually the very very long and entirely tangential blogpost came to an end when princess lauren *finally* got round to


the BLOOMIN' card

(vintage: game tally, slidemounts; patterned paper: basic grey, dcwv, heidi grace; cupcake stickers: martha stewart; sticker strip: creative imaginations; rub-ons: making memories; other: michael's ribbon, colorbox inks, zig pen)

and there was EVEN MORE rejoicing throughout the land!

and they all lived
