Prickly Kisses – Sketchy Thursdays and Bo Bunny Challenges

Love when things just come together so naturally. 😀

When I saw the 10.6 sketch at Sketchy Thursdays, I knew it would be perfect for this set of photos I’ve been wanting to scrap with Christian, who was 4 months old at the time, and Larry. We just can’t resist those chubby cheeks of his! Anyway, Larry’s kisses tend to get pretty prickly especially if it isn’t immediately after he shaves. Christian weathers though fine now, but wow when he was an infant, he’d wail for me to rescue him after just a kiss or two! lol

In the photos, he’s wearing a cutie one piece outfit and is wrapped in a matching muslin blanket which he loved, so I wanted to bring out the colors from the patterns. Bo Bunny’s Welcome home from their last release was just perfect! I anxiously stalked the mailman waiting for the papers, trinkets, brads and noteworthy pack to be delivered so I could get started! The colors and designs on the papers were so much prettier than I’d expected. Gorgeous!!! BB’s current layout challenge is to add dimension to your page, rather than a sketch, so I was able to combine these two challenges. Here’s what I came up with for my layout using the fab BB papers and embellies and the wonderful Sketchy Thursdays’ sketch:


Bo Bunny Welcome Home papers
BB Welcome Home trinkets
BB Welcome Home Noteworthy diecut journal pages
BB Welcome Home Brads
BB Welcome Home jewels
BB Welcome Home diecut sticker
Maya Road chipboard alphas
Folk Art Acrylic paint
Tim Holtz Distress Ink


Helmar Quick Fix adhesive runner
Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
