Another LO done - Twisted Sketch #110





With the weather so grey and dull outside I wanted to do something bright, and adopted an unfamiliar colour palate of blue and orange today, inspired by the photos and the possibility of using up some of my Fancy Pants boy papers that have been sitting around for ages.

Today's sketch twist was ribbon, so I got out my ribbon box and layered it in a stripe across the LO, added another family patterned strip, and then used a final piece to make a loop for the hidden journalling tag.

It brought back such memories of the year 2000 and my pre-digital age when getting the right photo was just that much harder, but these came out beautifully. Then I was 9 months pregnant and struggling with the heat - today I'm really quite chilly and my DS is heading for high school - how time flies past.
