Wednesday Words

A busy week for me blogwise, think this is the fifth day in a row that I've posted. Today it's back to scrapbooking and I've used the last February sketch from Let's Get Sketchy.

And I decided to use it for a milestone page about my gorgeous new grandson.

I love the new Simple Stories I AM collection and thought it was just so appropriate to my theme. The colours from the photo and the background paper were the influence for my colours.

I stuck pretty close to the sketch and used two of the medium circles for journalling repeating 'I am' at the beginning of each statement. I inked the edges of these two circles to give them more definition.

The star near the photo spot on the sketch became a heart and I stamped the date above the small rectangle at the bottom left of the page. I forgot to change the year to 2015 so the candi dot is there to hide my mistake.

Papers: Simple Stories, I AM; scraps from ny stash
Alphas: Simple Stories, I AM
Die: Xcut, spiro circles
Date stamp: Dear Lizzy
Ink: Ranger distress, black soot
Embellishments: candi dots

So pleased you had time to drop by today, thanks so much. And keep crafting!
