Firedog layout – Sketchy Thursdays Challenge Entry

Here’s Matthew when he was 2 years old. His preschool was having a unit on Community workers and had a Fireman visit the school. He had a blast checking out the fire engine. They even let him get inside! As you can see, the teachers went all out. 😀 He came home with his little paper hat with the ears and a little black painted nose. It was so cute! By the time I grabbed the camera, he’d already rubbed some of the paint off of his face, but you get the idea. This layout was based on the Sketchy Thursdays 3.31 sketch:

BB Midnight Frost cardstock papers

BB Timepiece Chipboard
