FUN on the FOURTH!

TWISTED SKETCHES! So love these sketches! This weeks twist is FUN! What's more fun than sparklers? This picture is of my sister in 1971!
Do you love the flowers/stars on the side of the picture? I'd love to take credit for them, but Amy Heller at October Afternoon is the genius behind them. You can find directions for them HERE I used Rocket Age from October Afternoon again (I am soooo loving that line!) Check out TWISTED SKETCHES to see all the other interpretations of the sketch and don't forget to check back next week for the new team too!

Button, Button, who's got the Button??

The twist over at Twisted Sketches is BUTTON! I had such a great time with this one! I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Rocket Age from October Afternoon and used a ton of it on this layout!
 The photo is of my hubby, oldest son and my father-in-law, all of them are named Patrick! Gets a little confusing when they are all together, but whatcha gonna do?!!
Be sure to check out the sketch and play along, I know you will love the sketch, I sure did!

Day Late & a Dollar Short!

Maybe it's that I've been cleaning and packing so much lately to get ready for our month long trip "back home" that I've missed a week. That's my excuse anyway. LAST Wednesday was my week to post for Twisted Sketches and I totally forgot to post my layout here on MY blog....DUH! So, here is my layout from LAST week.......

This is my little family of 5 on Easter this year. Can't believe how much my boys have changed from last years Easter picture! I just hate that! The twist this week was FLOWER. I don't get to use many flowers since I have 3 boys, so when I do, I do it big!! I have had these Prima flowers for ages, love that I finally got to use them! Anams sketch called for a big circle, which I replaced with a heart and a "bracket" shaped piece on the bottom which I replaced with my banners. That's what I love about sketches, you can use them any way you want. If you look, you can still see the basic sketch, but I made it my own! Be sure to check out Twisted Sketches to see LAST weeks sketch and another fantastic one from THIS week!
