Sketch #155

This week, Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge had a super-cool sketch that I could not wait to use! I decided to make another layout 'cause I love to create scrapbook pages and I haven't had enough time to do it this year! Needed to use this sketch, I had a DT assignment... so, Hey! What better excuse to use a sketch for a layout? Brilliant, LOL. **wink**

It's a "win-win-win" situation when you get a DT assignment done, photos scrapped, and a story told!!

Here's the latest sketch from AHSC:

Sketch #155 created by Michelle Stewart
and digitized by Brandi Robinson 

To do this, I flipped the sketch  a 1/4 turn to the right. Then I elongated the section for the photo. 

And here's the layout I created: 

 "Amazing brain" layout
 based on sketch by Michelle Stewart @ AHSC


Daniel is a very creative person. I walked into the laundry room one day,  and passed this colourful spread on the dining room table.
It was March Break and Daniel had been entertaining himself with Lego, working on this very detailed, eye-catching creation. Daniel later told me it was  a "Deadly Danger Dungeon game" and that he had found the idea on Youtube.  I asked him about the folded drawing seen in some of the photos and he  said he'd sketched out the idea long before making this Lego representation. The whole spread tells the tale of how Daniel's amazing brain works in completing something that inspires him. He is incredible!

I Love You...

Noah, my sweet boy, I love you more than yesterday
and less than tomorrow…
I love your smile, your beautiful brown eyes
looking right at me…
You have the most beautiful soul.

Love, Mommy
