Sweet Peach Sketch

Hello Blogland! Just a quick post to show you my layout that I created using this sketch from the Sweet Peach Crop Shop Blog.






Isn't it great?!
Anyhoo...this is what I came up with for this sketch:



and some close ups:





The photos are from a couple weeks ago in our back yard. My oldest son Ethan was climbing the tree in our yard, and Caleb (our 2 year old) wanted to go up too...so I put him in the tree, just a little above the ground, and was trying to get some pics of him smiling...it didn't work ;)
The journaling reads:



Mommy:"Smile Caleb!"
Caleb:"I want down!"
Mommy:"Caleb smile for mommy, then I'll get you down!"
Caleb:"I want DOWN!"
Mommy:"smile!" (mommy makes some funny faces in a last ditch attempt at getting Caleb to smile)
Caleb:"Mommy! Want DOWN!"
Realizing defeat, mommy throws in the towel, and finally takes Caleb down from the tree.
Caleb remains undefeated.

I had to chuckle, because Caleb is even more stubborn than I am...I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! When that kid doesn't want to do something, there is absolutely no way he is going to do it! It makes for some very fun, but also very frustrating days!




supplies used: papers: We R Memory Keepers, BoBunny, Tim Holtz-Coredinations, Crate Paper, and Bazzil. Inks and Paints: Distress Ink-Ranger, Crackle Paint. Brads: Basic Grey. Baker's Twine: the Twinery. Embossing Folder-Tim Holtz (sizzix), Die: Tim Holtz (sizzix), alphabets: (wood) Pink Paislee, Tim Holtz alphaparts.



Well, there you go! I hope you enjoy! I really appreciate you all taking the time to check out my work, it means a lot to me :)



ps: Thanks to Aunty Laura, and Marianne for the two extra brads!! (the package that I had only had one of those funky cool brown and white brads, so I had to go on a scavanger hunt for the other two...because I NEEDED to have 3 on my layout! lol and my Aunty Laura, and friend Marianne were gracious enough to part with theirs for my cause! lol I know, I need help...what can I say?!
