So a couple of weeks ago I discovered sketches in Thyme and did their #130 sketch, here is their #129 sketch:
when i saw it, I actually saw this sketch as a two page layout (so that's the direction I took). here is my take:
Okay so I know that this layout looks busy and hectic butt that is on purpose because his actual birthday was crazy, we had playgroup in the morning, then home for lunch and a nap, then woke him up to open presents, then my husband and dad went to Lloyd for a hockey game while mom watched kyle and i prepared for his birthday party the next day. So although it's busy, i love it because it captured the moments we stopped and celebrated my son!!!
paper: dcwv (celebration stack)
alphas: thickers (cherish; crimsom)
inks: lindy's stampgang starburst (tibetan poppy teal)
other: bazzill basics (flourish chipboard, authentique (diction), crate paper (boys rule: ephemera)
thank you for stopping by and for your thoughtful comments, hope you can play this month at Sketches in Thyme: http://sketchesinthyme.blogspot.ca/2014/09/blog-hop-sketch-129.html
