"My Son" for Sketchy Thursdays

Happy Saturday everybody! It's been a great day here at my house. It started out with a nice quiet house so I was able to enjoy some coffee and blog surfing. Then I cooked a nice big breakfast for my boys (plus one) yummo! The rest of my day, so far, has been spent in my craft room. I had a picture in mind that I wanted to scrap so I went on a layout sketch challenge hunt to find a challenge that I liked to go with the picture. Sketchy Thursdays was it! I really liked the 1.6 sketch challenge, here is their sketch.

Here is what I did with the sketch.

It's funny looking back at this picture. I remember it being taken so clearly, like it was yesterday. But to look at the picture and then look at him now, totally different. My oh my how time does fly! Oh, do you like that flower? Well I sure do and you can see how to make it right HERE, super easy and really cool looking....thanks Kim!

I'll be back on Monday with my first project for the Kraft Journal, be sure to visit me and the other AMAZING designers on that team. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

  2. Kristina, the flower turned out way too cute! I love all the different colors. It's so fun and totally made me smile that you used my tutorial. I am flattered!

  3. lovely the the colors and the sketch too.

    what do you mean when you said my boys plus one? is there some baby on their way? ;p

  4. I love this layout! Great picture! My youngest son is 14. I think the passage of time is much more noticeable with boys and all the changes they go through as they become men. It is wonderful watching them grow, but I sure miss my babies! Thanks for sharing your beautiful projects!
    Hugs, Janice
