Sketchy Thursdays: 9/17 sketch Cute & Crazy

Here is my interpretation of the 9/17 sketch on Sketchy Thursdays. I admit, that at first I was motivated by the giveaways for these sketches, but I'm having fun discovering inspiration through the sketches. For some reason this one took me all day and 3 tries to get a page I was happy with. First, the sketch:

And here it is, me and my crazy family!

I used rub-ons on the letters to help communicate the emotions I was going for. The ampersand was an interesting technique: I stuck a Pink Paislee glitter sticker on some white paper and decided against it, but when I removed it the bottom layer of the chipboard backing stuck to the paper. It looked too good to throw away, so I cut around the edges and sprayed with my new snow angel glimmer mist.
