Reluctant Model – layout for Sketchabilities #104

For my example of sketch #104 at Sketchabilities, I picked a photo that was taken of Matthew shortly after we got home after a haircut. He was tired and didn’t really want his picture taken at the moment, but I really thought he looked cute with his new cut, so I asked him to smile for one. He agreed to just 1…AFTER I’d taken this picture. lol I scrapped the photo of him grinning broadly a few weeks ago…this is actually a pic a took just seconds before that one. ๐Ÿ˜€

Count Your Blessings – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

It’s Thursday, so I’m up with a layout to share on the Creative Embellishments blog, created using several of my Fall favorites from the Creative Embellishments store. I can’t resist the many gorgeous frames they’ve added, so I even nested 2 of them on my page. lol

I snapped this pic of Matthew right after he’d had a haircut. I actually have a pic of him that was right before it where he’s sulking because he didn’t want me taking pictures, but when I asked him for just one good one, this is the cutie wide-mouthed grin I captured. lol

I was also inspired by the Purple Pumpkin November sketch:
