ABC

When I went to my mother-in-law's house to look at some pictures a few months back, I found these pictures that she had taken of Shane.  I am so glad to have the copies!!  I used THIS SKETCH from The Scrappiest for this layout:
Oh, those little tiny hands!  Picasso said that every child is an artist, and that is so true!  Shane loved to write, draw, and scribble from the time he could hold a writing utensil.  We are very lucky that he was not a child that wrote on walls, but rather colored and drew and then colored and drew some more.  I think that has helped him today to be the creative person that he is.

I don't very often combine challenges (cuz I just can't think that way!!), but this layout does fit Lasting Memories journaling challenge and Really Reasonable Ribbon's die cut/punch and ribbon challenge.  I also want to let you know that Practical Scrappers will be featuring Bella Blvd inspiration this week on Wednesday and Thursday.  If you want to see more yumminess from BB, be sure to pop over one of those days!

Items used:  Bella Blvd Mr. Boy; Bazzill Admiral CS; Slice Design Cards - Big Kids and Basics 1; Really REasonable Ribbon twine; Fancy Pants clip; CTMH gems and white tag
