Got Milk? – DT Layout for Paper Secrets Feb Sketch Challenge and a Card Challenge

These are my last 2 dt projects to share for the Paper Secrets February Challenges. First is my take on Rochelle’s fabulous sketch. I went with a few bits of Webster’s Pages All About Me pp, trims and a journaling card. The bling and mask are by Prima. The fab alphas are “Cushies” by Pink Paislee. Here’s my take on her artsy/grungy sketch:

Christian was trying so hard to figure out how to get the milk out of that gallon jug. I really think he thought it was just one huge bottle just for him. 😀 I tried to get pics of him trying to drink from the lid and even trying to lick it, but missed those shots. We were all laughing so hard we didn’t stop him until he tried to walk off with that heavy container. lol

I’m still not very good at making cards, but I sure am trying! lol For my take on Joyce’s card sketch, I used Sassafras Paper Crush pp, stickers, alphas and flower. The twine is from the Twinery. I just added a bit of doodling with a black pen. Here’s what I came up with:

Here’s Joyce’s awesome sketch for the Card Sketch Challenge:

Perfect to Me – Let’s Capture These Sketches #104

Ness created a fabulous sketch for our dt work on Let’s Capture These Sketches this week. When I saw it, I decided Webster’s Pages All About Me would be perfect for it. As it happens, Webster’s Pages challenge for this month is to use their All About Me line and include journaling about the person or people featured on the layout.

One of my goals for this year has been to journal on my pages by hand more often and also scrap pages that aren’t just the happy moments. I chose this picture to scrap the moment rather than a baby picture since it’s not very obvious that he’s missing toes on this right foot in the vast majority of photos and this one captures his true nature. He’s my easy going, always smiling, happy-go-lucky kiddo with a magnetic personality that everyone is drawn to. The journaling towards to top is about his personality. The journaling at the bottom talks about the day he was born, though I had to shorten it to fit. Toes or no toes he is and always will be Perfect To Me.
