My Son - Once Upon a Sketch

Hello Again

I am very early this month with my Once Upon a Sketch challenge layout, but I really was inspired to create this layout, especially since I had wanted to scrap this photo for a while! I had used it before for a layout which I gave to my Mom, but I had not scrapped it for myself.

So here is the sketch.



Here is my offering. The picture of a little boy, with such a serious face on his birthday!


I used Echo Park This and That papers and Design Worx chipbaord pieces and Bazill basics paper pieces. I did some background stamping using a Kaisercraft stamp and a Martha Stewart punch for the punched border. The number round is 7 Gypsies.

Here are some close ups.




Time passes so quickly and I can't believe that my son is almost 5.  I remember fondly this birthday and the sweet innocence that went with it. I think this photo just captures that completely.

Thanks for looking in..
Have an awesome day!
