Keep Calm and Smile On

Do you ever try a different starting point when you're creating a page?  Almost always I start with the pictures, but today I really, really, REALLY wanted to use my new Vintage Bliss collection pack from Simple Stories.  Gah, I just love the colours in this collection, so GORGEOUS!  Here's the sketch I was given from Sketches in Thyme waaaaaay in advance to work with (and procrastinated until today to make my page, oops!):

I love this sketch!  I wish I stuck to it a bit more, but I just couldn't seem to make the circles fit with my design.  That's what's so wonderful about a sketch, though - always adaptable to what you need.

Here's a few close-ups so you can read my journaling:

So the problem with my camera I told you about?  Turns out the battery WAS dead!  But now it seems like it's going dead very quickly.  Whew, a new battery should be a lot cheaper than a new camera, though!  

We've been having a really rough go of it the last couple of weeks here.  To make a long story very short, Nolan's behaviour has been off the charts!  Through some sort of miracle, we have a Behaviour Consultant coming out from Prince George next week, so hopefully he will be the answer to everything.  Fingers crossed, eh?  I'll keep you posted!  

Thanks for looking, and make sure you check out all the other Mavens' designs over at the Sketches in Thyme blog!

  1. She is so darn cute!!! I love this paper too!! Still haven't got my hands on some but I admire it every time I see it. This is a great sketch!! Maybe I will get really ambitious and try to get a layout done with it.
    I hope the consultant can help you figure things out with Nolan (:
    Thanks for the comment on my blog (: I am hoping to get a bit done this summer as I just found out I will be teaching science first semester of the next school year (busy busy!!!)
