F is for.... and Sketchy Thursdays

Hi everyone, I have two layouts to post for you today.  The first one is for the mid month A to Z challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous.  Our letter for this month is "F" and we're asking you to create something that starts with the letter F.  This could be a manufacturer, an embellishment, a technique, we like to leave it wide open for interpretation.  Here's what I made...
I used one of my favorite Fancy Pants lines of all time called Sweet Spring.  It's an older line but I hold tight to every little scrap of it that I have. The other F's are frame, felt flowers, fibers and fairy princess.

When I read that this weeks sketch was going to be the final for Sketchy Thursdays I had to play along.  Sketchy Thursdays if the first challenge blog with which I played and believe they're why I stuck with blogging in the first place.  Here's my take...
I stuck to the sketch pretty closely.  Lots of Echo Park For the Record on here, but also some Maya and Pink Paislee.  It's a picture of my kids showing each other love.  Well Marin was trying to hug Gavin and he was pushing her away.  I love this picture because it's so ...real :)

Why not stop on over at Scrapbookers Anonymous to play along with our challenges this month then go to Sketchy Thursdays and give them a great send off!!!  Thanks for looking!
