For these photos I was with my granddaughter and little Jovy to go to Leia’s school to pick her up. Being with this one and a half year old is always a new adventure of discovery. On every turn so much to see. Mommy is ever ready for a sudden flight of fancy from her explorer.
Sketches in Thyme sketch #353 fit these photos well.
There was no need to get too fancy with the great, basic flow of this design, so I went with it. Scrappin’ Peeps offered a December color challenge earlier this month to use gray. I was looking forward to finding gray in with my stash of pretty papers but came up short. I did find the base print in a very old pack of Stampin’ Up! paper. Then, one scrap of this pretty print from Fun Stampers Journey to which I added a coordinating solid gray. Because of the aqua in the pattern I used some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse over a Tim Holtz stencil for my cross flow on the base. A title just didn’t seem important to me, so I used stickers from my very ageing supply.
What is really important is the taking of random photos of our loved ones. Time is fleeting and even the tiny moments prove to make my heart happy. That’s what is great about scrappbooking those photos. It makes my heart happy to play and create with paper and other media, and all the while I am establishing a lock on a moment in time to be revisited again another day.
I really like this sketch. I’ll likely find myself using it again. Also, the gray. Nice cool neutral that allows the photos to be noticed.
Thanks for taking a few minutes out of your valuable on-line time to stop in and read about my scrapping. I wish you time to find your happy place with what ever art or creative play lifts your spirit.
