A while back, I was on the hunt for new sketch sites and stumbled upon The Scrappiest blog created by Liz Chidester. The work on there is inspiringly beautiful, but, not over the top like some of the DTs you see out there. I hate looking at someone else's work and not being able to think about anything besides the cost of the embellishments that went into it...that just stresses the hoarder in me out! ;O)
This sketch was from way back on August 16th and sadly, I think I started this layout shortly after it was posted!! To be fair, we did have back to back visitors...of course, that only accounts for two weeks of the last month! I'm still working on the 10th month of Owen's baby book and I think the color combo of this Twitterpated Paper was partly to blame for my blockage! I love the paper in general, but, it works best for either fall or little girl pics and this one wasn't either. Actually, the picture itself makes Owen look kind of girly to begin with between his white pj's and little pink cheeks...so, that didn't exactly help. But, I decided to just go with it and I think I like how it turned out in the end...I know he's a little boy and that's all that matters, right. :O)
