Here is my take on Sketchy Thursday's 3.17 challenge. I haven't done ST in a couple weeks and am glad to have gotten a chance to finally join in again. I'd been trying to figure out what to do with these random pics of my husband and son sleeping and finally came up with this idea. The journaling talks about their similar personalities and their shared propensity for falling asleep at the drop of a hat *LOL*
For this I used a bunch of paper scraps: Kaiser Craft and some other unknown PP; Bazzill cardstock, cheap CS from HL, white uniball gel pen, Pine Needle Distress Ink (Ranger), McGill botanical bird punch, Sizzix (Tim Holtz) wood grain embossing folder, ColorBox chalk ink (chestnut roan), and AC Thickers

I can't seem to get past using Echo Park's Walk in the Park line with all our carnival photos- the colors just seem to work really well and I really love the papers. They are just so versatile and they seem so easy to use for mixing patterns- something I normally have trouble with. Anyway, I used a few papers from the line; the alphas , banners, and ticket are from the line's coordinating sticker sheets. I also used CS by Bazzill and my new twine from The Twinery

After J's cousin's wedding, we spent time visiting family. While we were inside with his aunt and uncle, the boys were outside with K, their second cousin of the flaming red hair. I used all CC Togetherness for this LO except the homemade paper flowers which were made with scraps of BG - maybe June Bug line? I did some fussy cutting - though not nearly as "fussy" as it could be - and used one of the handy-dandy word strips for a "title". I still need to journal of course. And I kind of feel like his one is missing something. It's not my fav LO ever but I am done trying to fix it- not every layout is gonna be my version of a personal masterpiece or even a favorite :P

Anyway, this uses the negative of the Bazzill circle I used earlier, Jenni Bowlin paper and AC Thickers from the Sweet Peach February Juicy kit, and the flowers, tulle and ribbon from the wedding favors.
The pics are of my husband's aunt and her granddaughter who has the deepest red hair I have ever seen on a little girl. Cute, cute, cute.

As for the challenge part, I got the wild hair to start my own challenge blog and - since my friend CJ thought it was a great idea - I shanghaied her into joining me :P. I am gonna post challenges here weekly and give out prizes for participants monthly at first and probably twice a month if participation grows. Heaven knows I have enough stash for prizes for a looooooong time. The first challenge will be homemade/DIY embellies - like the red flowers on this LO - and the first prize will be some of those resin embellies in colors of the winner's choice :)
