don't blink...

It is so true what they say..."Don't blink...your kids will grow up in a heartbeat..."

I used to be like, "yeah, right..."

But then guess what happened...yep, you guessed it...time is flying by...my little boys have turned into wonderful young men...they make me so proud :o)

As soon as I saw the July Guest Designer sketch challenge over at Sketchy Thursdays, I knew that the recent photo of my boys would be perfect.

I just did a little flip of the sketch & here's what I came up with:

Something *new for me* that I tried on this layout is the fun doodle line around the edge...I've seen it done by others but had never been brave enough to give it a try...call me a perfectionist, but it's really hard for me to do stuff freehand...I think it turned out pretty good :o)

Also, brand spankin' new product on this layout includes the Jillibean Soup Corrugated Kraft Alpha and the Core'dinations Core Impressions Cosmo Cricket cardstock (thanks to Diana-part of the goodies I won on her blog!)  LOVE that you can sand the Core'dinations cardstock & it reveals the cool pattern...

Here's a close up of the alpha...I inked the edges and then popped a few up with foam adhesive.

I picked up some 7 Gypsies stickers @ Hobby Lobby...I can tell that they are going to become a favorite of mine :o)

Great sayings, huh?!?  LOVE these stickers!!!
