Sketches in Thyme: Getting Messy

It's my day over at Sketches in Thyme! I found these pictures of my oldest (deep in my stash) and thought it was time to use them. As I was finishing up, I remembered that my brother, who was visiting that day, got her to put her hand print on a piece of paper. He gave it to me and said, "you're a scrapbooker, maybe you can add this to her book." I'm so glad I remembered he had done that (even happier that I tucked it into her album to save for this day).

Kept it even more CAS than normal! Just one little embellishment that says it all.

Used my cameo, been a bit since I have. I really do love this machine!

Thanks to my brother, I have this wee hand print. I can't wait to show it to her to prove she used to be tiny.

The sketch:

Link up by May 31 for your chance to win a gift certificate!

Let's Scrap Sketches: Always Follow Your Heart

This is my little mini. It's so hard to believe that she is 5.5 now. Crazy how fast time goes. She was and still is a pretty happy kid, always smiling and giggling. She still loves being in photos, she now asks me to take a picture!

Just a little close up of my girl's sweet face.

Using my favourite thing..pop dots!

Buttons, buttons and more buttons!

This is what I wish for all my girls. I want them to always follow their hearts!

I chose to use the left side of this week's sketch from Let's Scrap Sketches.
