Monday Malaise

Phew. I need a weekend from my weekend. Birthday parties, sick kid--same old, same old! How about you?

Today a sketch challenge is posted at ScrapTiffany. The sketch was created by another ScrapTiffany designer, Kim Holmes. Here is the fun sketch she designed.

And here is my take on the sketch.

As it turns out, I have a lot of trouble tilting on layouts.  Everything in my house and life is so askew, that I think I crave order when I create LOL! So I straightened everything up and then had fun layering and embellishing to my heart's content. I mainly used October Afternoon Report Card here. Have I mentioned how much I love October Afternoon? Sigh. Good stuff. Although it is hard to see, I also stamped 1, 2, 3 over and over on the twill. And this picture? It was one of my favorites from a playdate we all had a while back, but it didnt really have a story that went with it, so I decided to name three facts about my little guys as he is months away from turning 3. THREE!!?? Seriously? I just want to scoop him up. "I just want to dunk him in my coffee." --Gloria in Madagascar (which we just saw for the first time this week--we are soooo behind the times).  Thankfully he is still my little guy and loves the love.

That's all I have for now. Hope your week is happy and healthy.
