Sketchy Thursdays - A Debut For me!

Well, ladies, I have finally taken a break from cards (for a few days) to get back to my roots - scrapbooking! I have never done a scrapbooking challenge before, so this was new to me, especially since my layouts usually are 2 page spreads and have more than one photo on them. But that's what I love about this blogging thing, it's bringing out more creativity in me and a little bit of my competitive side as well, which has been in hiding for 7 years now - and it feels great!

This layout is for a challenge over at Sketchy Thursdays and there's a prize for a Studio Calico kit - EEK!-how yummy would that be?! This, I decided, was a good time to get back to my layouts and challenge myself at the same time. I love the the way this layout really speaks to my little man and his zest for life! I find so much passion for what I do when the focus is on my kids. I just love combining my two loves into one visual message.
Hope you had a wonderful Monday! Should be a fun Tuesday!
