Sketches in Thyme Thursday Takes #53

Good Morning Blog Land! It’s time for another fab sketch from Sketches in Thyme! I’m heading out for a camping trip, so I’m going to make this post short and sweet so without further adieu, here’s the sketch:


Isn’t it great?! It’s so open for interpretation! And with that, here’s mine: I found this picture that was taken of me the day I had Kieran. I didn’t know it at the time that I was going to have a baby that day, I just knew that I was 40 weeks, and going to the hospital to have an ultrasound done for extra fluid…turns out, I had too much, so they induced me right then :) I was quite happy, because he was the first out of 3 that actually went full term, and I was totally ready to be not pregnant anymore!


Close up:


I punched 4, 12”x1” strips of paper with my punch, then box folded them so they would go in a circle a bit, then taped it to my main circle with my trusty score tape, then added the raffia (which colors nicely with distress inks) and a row of those pretty pearls. Once I got that done the page came together quite easily, but I’ll tell ya, that part was definitely NOT easy ;) but it was worth it because I’m quite happy with the way it turned out :)


Well, so much for this post being short! I can’t help it, I think I just like to blab too much! lol Anyway, I hope you play along with us this month at Sketches in Thyme! This is the first of 3 challenges, so get crafting!!

Also, don’t forget to join us over at Creative Accents and use that ever growing stash!! That’s why we buy the stuff right? that and it’s just so darn fun and cool! lol

I’m off to go camping for the night! Wish me a night free of bears!!
