As soon as I saw this weeks sketch at Sketchy Thursdays the wheels started turning. I knew I wanted to use a sun instead of the butterfly in the sketch so I could enter it over at City Crafters Challenge Blog. And when I was looking through pictures trying to decide which fun sunny picture I would use of the kids I stumbled across this picture of me. It was actually taken by my 3 year old, yes I let her take pictures with my camera. The camera has seen better days and might as well start them off young right?! Oh and I'm also wearing her necklace as requested, just in case the multicolored beads jump out at you :)
Whenever I do layouts of me I gravitate towards my favorite paper... Sassafras. Well I bought the line Ellie's Tale sometime ago and hadn't even opened it. I used mostly Ellie's Tale on this but there are some bits of Applejack and Count Me In lines as well.
And guess what! It's past the 15th of the month and on the 15th we're supposed to share any cards we made for the Scrapbookers Anonymous challenge. Well I did the card but as one of the founders of the challenge blog I always think oh I have plenty of time to take a picture of my project and get it posted to the blog. Not the case this time... oops. So here is my card made with my hard to use color...purple.
Scrapbookers Anonymous and check out this months great challenge!!! I'm heading over there right now too... to post my card :)
