ten years old

Hey, happy Monday - hope you are all well.  
I got some scrappin' done and joined in with the challenge at Once Upon a .... Sketch - a great sketch and birthday theme from Nadia!!
Here's what I've created:
 I've used papers from Simple Stories - Summer Fresh collection - love all the use of primary colours in this collection as well as faux denim and burlap. I have plenty of layers with distressed edges and also some gorgeous rosettes using the Tim Holtz mini paper rosette die.
So this photo is of my twin boys who turned TEN in January - this was the perfect challenge for this photo as it also gave me the opportunity to do some meaningful journalling.
Here are some close-up's:
 ... rosettes finished off with buttons, cabachon and twine ...
 ... paper curling - such a fun way to add dimension to LO's and it suited this birthday themed page ...
 ... my computer journalling...

And here is the sketch to work with:
Another month is flying by - there's still a few challenges that I'd love to give a go, so hopefully I will be back soon with some more shares.
If you would love a challenge, head over to ARTastic - they have a fun challenge this month with insects - either as an embellishment or in the photo - we would really love to have some entries ☺☺
Early next month I will have some super exciting news to share - cannot wait for this new opportunity - it's going to be fun ☺
Thanks for coming by.

I really love the masculinity of this LO. The colours and embellies are just fantastic.

You have used the sketch beautifully and just love those papers. Great page and great pic. I was putting together a photo book the other week and I realised that nearly every birthday I have pics of the boys together with their cake but not really individual pics. I think after the together shot they kind of lose it so I don't bother. Maybe the next 8 years I will try for the individual shots.
