Dear Boys

Whew! Let me tell you something. We have been all off schedule lately because of holiday and both boys being sick at different times during the work week & I have learned I am a schedule person! Without my schedule I do not get my crafty time in, and then I become grumpy!

But I'm back! :)

Today I'm bringing you a page I created for this week's challenge at Lasting Memories, which is to create a page of your favorite fall activity.

Fall is our absolute favorite, and we have lots of fun activities, but CUDDLING and SNUGGLING is a favorite pasttime. This is a photo of my sweet boys doing just that.

I created this using a wonderful sketch from Stick It Down. I've really enjoyed their sketches lately, they're on point!

I also used a prompt from the latest "issue" at Paper Issues of "Knock my Fox Off". I used a woodland creature in this sweet page about my little deers.

Here's the original sketch:

I recently received a giant supply of stamps, inks and and embossing supplies from a friend of my best friend & I've really been enjoying them! I used some here to make the leafy branches connecting the photo circles.

It even got me to fussy cut, which I don't typically enjoy!

I really hope you will play along with us this week at Lasting Memories!

  1. Adorable layout. Love it when I get scrappy treats from my friends too.

  2. So glad to hear you are enjoying the sketches. Your layout is lovely. I must say your use of the yellow and orange for accent colours fits so well with your fall theme and the photographs. Thanks so much for joining us at Stick It Down. Can't wait to see more of your designs.

  3. Such a sweet, sweet page and I love your take on the sketch.
