Sketchy Thursdays...Only Exception

I don't know what it is about the Sketchy Thursday Sketches, but, they totally get me inspired and motivated!!!  I've had a really hard time getting back into the swing of things since the holidays and I haven't loved my last few projects.  But, I LOVE how this one turned out and it went together so fast!!

I've been wanting to document a special thing that Owen does and this was just the layout to do it!  He and I were listening to Paramore's song "The Only Exception" in the truck one day and Owen started singing it with me.  Ever since then, any time the song comes on the radio, Owen always says "It's our song mommy!" and stops whatever he's doing to sit with me and sing it.  It's the sweetest thing EVER!  He's such a little love bug, I don't know how we got so lucky!
I was so excited to get started with this sketch, it wasn't until I was looking at everyone else's entries that I realized this is a contest sketch!  Not only will the winner get the prestigious honor of being a Guest DT member in February, but, there's also an AMAZING kit up for grabs from Artfuldelight.  You have until the 22nd to post your take on the sketch!!
