Well, if you were hoping for a place to rest your eyes, this layout is probably not for you! It is wild and crazy, which totally suits the mood of the subjects! I am submitting this one to a new sketch site I found through Sarah, and it's called Sketches in Thyme. For their Open Challenge, you can submit any layout created with any sketch, and mine is based on a sketch from Scrapbooks, etc. Magazine. (April 2011, P. 87) You would never know I based my page on this sketch! Their samples are clean and simple, and mine is... well, not!
I made this page for Nolan to remind him of a time when he and Ailis were the best of buds. I love Nolan to bits, but he is my "difficult" child. If you don't have one of these, you won't know what I'm going on about, but we seem to conflict every day over just about everything. This move has not been easy on him, he's not fitting in at school, (never has, but we kept our fingers crossed that this time, maybe he would find one kid who "gets" him - no luck so far!) and Ailis is finally getting fed up with him tripping her, pushing her around, screaming at her and calling her names. She is a very tolerant little girl, wise beyond her years, but she's distancing herself from him and no wonder. I'm not sure if they'll ever be close like they used to be, brings a little tear to my eye.
Well, that's enough of a sob story for today. Hope ya don't mind me unloading a bit! Enjoy the rest of your week, hugs to all, Roxy.
Supplies: Fancy Pants Designs patterned paper, My Mind's Eye stickers and patterned paper, Creative Memories pen and letter stickers, Close to My Heart patterned paper, Tim Holtz Distress Ink and Perfect Pearls (on tag), unknown buttons, monster cards, and baker's twine, tag from Nolan's pants
