I have been so busy these days with swimming lessons and hockey and school, not to mention baby, but I am really trying to make sure I get in some scrapbooking here and there. I think it might just be what keeps me sane! lol So I decided to play along with Artful Delight and their fun sketch! I love a sketch that is super simple and leaves it open to interpretation!
I have so many pictures of Ethan on the swings at the park, because he just really loved it when he was really little! He still does, only now he can pump and doesn't need a push anymore...although he still likes it when we push him too! I really liked this picture of him with his dad behind him giving him a big push, and I'm trying to not only scrap my most recent pictures, but get some of the old ones into albums too, so when I saw this sketch I thought this picture would be perfect for it!
I used a little bit of everything on this layout, some basic grey and pink paislee papers, some studio calico cork stickers and rub ons and some lawn fawn leaf confetti, some chic tags and a fun little "boy" flair that I got in my studio calico kit, but my favorite thing about this layout is that sentiment "Smiling's My Favorite" from a Mama Elephant stamp set. I saw that sentiment on another layout a while ago and I can't even remember which blog it was on, but as soon as I saw it I had to have it because it's my favorite line from the movie "Elf" I love it when he says "I love smiling. Smiling's my favorite" That whole movie is just awesome, so when I found out that sentiment existed I hunted it down right away and ordered it! The set actually has some really awesome pieces in it too, so it was a bonus!!
Here's a couple close ups:
Well, I hope I've inspired you to get scrapping! I'm off to bed now :)
