#Lovely Boy (Lets Get Sketchy)

Hello, it's Team A's turn for our first October reveal over at Lets Get Sketchy!  What I love about sketches is that I can always make them work for my style.  This week we had an awesome sketch by our wonderful boss Brenshevia.  

I used my July Hip kit and made this sweet page about our darling 7 year old boy, who I feel is growing up so fast, especially now that he's a big brother to two little sisters.  I took this photo on our Winter bike ride, and I've loved scrapping these photos so much.  The journalling reads "You are the best big brother two little girls could have.  We love you so much! xxx".

I know I've said it before, but Kimberly really is amazing at putting together kits.  I wasn't too sure about the papers in this kit, but I ended up loving them and the combination of embellishments.  The October Afternoon snap caps and chipboard worked so well with this boy page!  

I was very excited to use my new American Crafts DIY mini stapler for the first time on this layout!

And here is the sketch:

As always please play along as we love seeing your takes on the sketch!

By the way, I haven't disappeared from the scrapbooking and blogging world, its school holidays here right now, and last week we went to Dunedin for 5 days.  It was awesome to have some time together as a family.  We stayed at Portobello, which is a little seaside bay, and did lots of fun things like the museum, Chinese Gardens, and lots of parks.  I'll have more to share when I scrap the photos.

Thanks for looking :)
