Finally Friday

Boy, am I glad it is the weekend.  This week has just been terrible for me--being sick, not sleeping etc.  All I want this weekend is CALM!  I don't want to do anything. 

Little Yellow Bicycle had another sketch challenge.  I love their stuff and they had another awesome sketch by Liz Qualman.

I loved it and I had just bought some of the new line of theirs called Twig.  Oh, I love this line.  I knew exactly what photos I wanted to use for this.  Jack and I were sitting at the table doing some work on the alphabet and he was just sitting there so darn cute that I grabed my camera and started shooting.  He doesn't like it when I do this but he was in a good mood and I captured some great pictures.

Here is my take on the sketch

My Sweet Boy
I used my Silhouette and cut the font, and I place a couple of their faux buttons.

I was in love with the little tree and charms.  Each one has a word on it for example: thoughtfullness, kindness etc.  The were perfect for my layout because all the words describe my Jack.  For the journaling tag I stamped it with Ali Edwards stamps.
I added a couple of the dimensional buttons.

I also used their canvas border strips.  I love these.

Well, I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.  Any big plans? I will be back on Monday with a new layout.  Thanks for stopping by!
