The birds are chirping....the sun will be shining....gonna create today then off to the Semi Finals to see the Woodsville High School girls.....KICK SOME SOFTBALL BUTT!! and today I WILL NOT FORGET MY CAMERA!

So, over the weekend my boy turned 15...I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!! he's grown an 1 1/2" in the last few months...his voice is changing....AAAAAHHHH!!

To celebrate this occasion...I created a few layouts using the sketches created by the Sketch-k-teers over at Let's Caputure These Sketches. They are having a Birthday Bash Celebration....the site is turning "ONE".

Layouts of my daughter just flow with lace and flowers but it TRULY IS A STRETCH to scrap layouts of my boy....especially now that he's 15!! Def can't have any "PRETTY" stuff going on there!

So, I decided that I would use Guylaine's June 6th sketch...Now, each of these sketches has a challenge....OMW...I got them ALLL mixed up...this originally was monochromatic (not Guylaine's challenge...hers is to use black letters) using Basic Grey's Cappella papers...then I decided I wanted to use a Glimmer Mist Screen and Raven Glimmer Mist....I learned an important lesson....try it on scrap paper first. It came out a little heavier than I anticipate, but it turned out OK...I then took the GM covered screen and used it like a stamp in the lower right corner. I added a layer of Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist, stitched, distressed, painted, rolled and just had fun with it!! I used one of my GrungePaper Roses...If you haven't seen my tutorial yet you need to CHECK IT OUT!!

I had to take a picture of brother and sister, on this special occasion.....there are so few of them now a days especially without them making some goofy face!!! I must say....I rather like this picture!! I used Tara's sketch for this layout, her challenge was to use something with wings! I used Basic Grey's new Max & Whiskers (a dog & cat collection....not just for animal layouts!!!)

OK...so I am still in shock about this whole birthday thing....but this too shall pass...now off to create some more layout....and then to watch the Lady Engineers KICK BUTT.....GO GREEN!!
