Yet Another Challenge + some good news!

I lied.  I said I wouldn't be back until Monday, but we had a snow day on Friday, and I thought I would enter another challenge.  I didn't have time before but with the snow I was able to squeak in one more.  Plus this was a really fun one!

Sketchy Thursdays Challenge

Here is the awesome sketch!

You also had to include the following things:

• Use a heart

• Use red and/or pink

• And journaling somewhere on the page

And here is my take on the sketch.

Those Eyes

Michael had the biggest blue eyes when he was a baby, and I thought this paper was just perfect to show them off.   I love this line of Echo Park (but has there been a line that I haven't liked?).

 Here is my journaling.
 Here is my red.
 And here are my hearts!
cardstock:  bazzill
pattern paper: echo park
brads:  making memories
punches:  tim holtz on the edge dies

So this was just a quick post. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.  I am going to relax --and believe it or not--NO SCRAPPING for me this weekend.  Need a quick little break to get my juices flowing again.  Plus I want to catch up on my reading and maybe watch a movie.

I had some great news today I made the Top 5 for my sketch here.  I was so excited! and I made 3rd place for the Little Yellow Bicycle Savor Challenge.  Here it is on my blog and here it is on Little Yellow Bicycle Blog.  I can't believe it!  What an awesome day!  I just had to share it with you!

Thanks for stopping by and I will be back on Monday!

What a awesome layout, you really do rock.
Michael is adorable. I did a layout like this for my youngest Kristy. She came to me sad that daddy was calling her names. I asked what did daddy call you... she replied "Blue Eyes" teehee.
