Where’s Matthew? – dt layout for Lets Capture These Sketches #123

For my take on JJ’s sketch for Let’s Capture These Sketches challenge #123, I went with mostly primary colors using Echo Park‘s A Boy’s Life collection. The journaling reads, “July 16, 2011 – I was startled when I peeked into your room that night to check on you and you weren’t in bed! I had just passed the bathroom, but thought I could have overlooked you, so I looked for you there first. When you weren’t there either, I started to get worried. I raced to my room…no Matthew! I checked downstairs and all the other bedrooms and didn’t see any sign of you. Panicked, I checked your room again. To my relief, there you were…sleeping right on top of a 3 ft. high pile of folded blankets and plastic tubs of stuff animals and toys in the back corner of your room. You were snuggled in so deep, only your head was poking out!”

I went with “Where’s Matthew”? As the title because the photos remind me of Where’s Waldo. lol Here’s my take on JJ’s sketch:

Materials:

Echo Park A Boy’s Life papers
EP A Boy’s Life diecut stickers
EP A Boy’s Life Alpha stickers

Controlled by the 3DS – Layout for Pagemaps

For my take on the current Pagemaps sketch (due March 4, 2012), I decided to go with Echo Park’s A Boy’s Life papers, diecut stickers and alpha stickers to compliment these photos of Taten playing his 3DS (which is his current obsession). He’s always insisting that someone or another watch as he plays, whether it’s me, his father or Alex…some has GOT to watch! lol

All the adhesives used were by Helmar (Quick Fix adhesive runner and Zap Dots). Here’s what I came up with:

Silly Boy – Layout for Creative Scrappers sketch #195

Creative Scrappers posts a new sketch every Sunday and all entries using their sketches are due at the end of the month, so this month, entries are due by February 29th. For my take on the sketch, I used Echo Park’s A Boy’s Life papers, diecut stickers and alphas. All adhesives used were by Helmar (Quick Fix adhesive runner and Zap Dots).

The photos on my layout were taken when Christian was especially fussy one night and out of ideas, Larry sat him in a diaper box that he’d emptied. Amazingly, it worked! Christian sat there fully engaged, occupied and HAPPY for nearly an hour. 😀 Here’s what I came up with for the challenge:
