Sketches In Thyme #87

Hi there! I have a new sketch from Sketches In Thyme to show you today, and this one is really fun! Just think of the different patterned papers (or WASHI!!) you can use...








Supplies: Authentique Fresh Collection - Crisp, Clean; Authentique Celebrate Collection - Enjoyment; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain, Black Soot; Tim Holtz Distress Marker - Black Soot; Studio Calico Mister Huey - Inky Black, Overdue; Ali Edwards Stamp Set - Family Circle; Fiskars Twinkle Twinkle Punch; Martha Stewart Circle Cutter; Studio Calico Wood Veneer Stars; My Mind's Eye Celebrate Brads
*I'd like to say a HUGE thank you to my sweet friend Sandi for gifting me with the floral paper (Enjoyment) I used here...it was just perfect!


For my page I decided to use this very special picture from 1999. My oldest daughter was just 11 days old and we had gone to my Aunt Cindy's house for a Christmas celebration with my family. She took this shot of us right when we walked in. We were all SO tired, I was still swollen from my pregnancy and had on NO make-up, my hubby was wearing a crazy wrestling shirt...but none of that matters one bit. It's one of the first family pictures of us that we have and I absolutely adore it. I remember how happy we were to finally have that sweet baby girl in our lives and we were so in love with her! It was a very happy time in our lives and I'm thankful to finally have it in my scrapbooks...

So what do you think of the sketch? If you love and want to try using it yourself, we'd love to see what you create! Once you've got your project made, be sure to link it up at the Sketches In Thyme blog by the 31st to be entered for a fun prize. ;) Thanks so much for stopping by today!
