Art & Handprints & Fishing!!!

This week at SKETCHES IN THYME we are having another "open" sketch challenge week!!  I used
the LEFT side of this sketch from SKETCH SAVVY

And this is my layout about Joseph's ART that his school PURCHASED from him for their

Also wanted to share a layout that I "totally lifted" but love how it turned out..  I saw a layout over on the Lily Bee blog by Ronda Palazzari -- and I had been trying to figure out how to scrap this photo of the "Stepping Stone" that Joseph gave me for Mother's Day and when I saw this layout, I knew..... so here is what I did:
(Thanks Ronda!! -- and I even used Lily Bee papers too!)

And I thought I'd share one more..... This layout is from our Ohio vacation this summer.  Joseph caught a bass on the very first cast EVER (first time he's ever been fishing).....  I used October Afternoon Campfire papers.  (and that glare is on the actual photo...  just a bad angle... not much posing going on when I wasn't really ready for him to catch a fish on the first cast....AND the fish was wiggly and Joseph didn't want to hold it!!)

  2. Soooooooooooooo AWESOME that his school bought his artwork!! WOW!! What an honor! I loveeeeeeee all of these!! That design on the fishing one is way COOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)
