My Guy Layout – Sketchy Thursdays Challenge Entry

Oh how I love to combine my dt work with challenges. 😀

The December GDT sketch on Sketchy Thursdays has the additional requirement that your page reflect gratitude or thankfulness. When asked what am I most thankful for or grateful for, the first thing that comes to mind would be my family. Larry and the children. Though I’m usually tempted to scrap the children’s photos for a page like this, when I thought about it more, I kept going back to the thought that our family would not be complete without Larry. I can’t think about the children without also picturing him with them. Playing with them, teasing them, smiling at them, etc…then I knew I wanted to scrap a couple of photos of my handsome hubby that I’ve been holding onto.

This week, on the Firefly Expressions Blog, we’re focusing on Shimmer Papers by The Paper Company. Once I noticed how well the B sides of the Peach and Grass Green papers went with the Prima Pixie Glen collection, I knew I wanted to combine my dt work on ffe w/the ST sketch. 😀 Here’s what I came up with:

The journaling reads: “We might not agree on everything, but I’m thankful for every day we have together & am grateful that we found each other. You make our family complete.”

Now you might be wondering why I started it with “We might not agree on everything”…it’s cuz he’s in his camo…he was hunting the day the photos were taken and I’m not real thrilled with hunting, but it’s a family tradition he grew up with, so we agree to disagree on the subject. 😉
