TAAFOMFT & Sketchy Thursday Challenge 2.25

Sketchy Thursday Challenge 2.25
I am loving the sketches over at Sketchy Thursday.
I was able to get two different layouts from this sketch.

Here is my layouts:

bath time with TJ

I love this paper. I love the clocks all over the paper.
It is perfect for my bath time layout.
And the picture of TJ is too cute.
And here is my second layout from the sketch

I missed the deadline for this challenge
but I am going to post it anyways.
The TAAFOMFT Challenge:
These are a few of my favorite memories.
This was kind of a hard challenge for me,
I have so many fond memories.
The deciding factor for me was the photo.
It says it all.
We had just gotten married and
were coming out of the little white church to the limo.
We are so young and happy.

Sketchy Thursdays Challenge 2.18

Sketchy Thursdays Challenge 2.18:
It's that time again!
Time for another Sketchy Thursday sketch Challenge.
Here is the Sketchy Thursday sketch:
Here is what I was able to create from the sketch:

This challenge was really hard for me. I have the hardest time with circles.
I think this is why I really like Sketchy Thursdays Sketches.
It makes me create outside my comfort zone.

the super cute diva blossom flowers
are from Green Horned Unicorn Esty shop;

The Perrrfect Valentine

This may have been the perfect Valentine's Day.
My Valentine started off with brunch at Wrigley Mansion..
Picture of entry way of Wrigley Mansion
The food is amazing!
If you haven't been you have to go sometime.
And the views are breathtaking.
After a delicious brunch I got this beauty. And then Dave took me to the movies.
Followed by jalapeno pizza and us curled up on the couch watching some T.V.
Like I said.. The Perfect Valentine's Day for me that is!
Hope you had a lovely Valentines Day too!

Sketchy Thursday 2.4/ Challenge # 14 What is your favorite outfit?

Once again, the girls at Sketchy Thursday have come up with an amazing sketch for their Challenge 2.4
This sketch did double duty for me.
I was able to create a layout for Sketchy Thursday and for TAAFOMFT
Here is my interpretation of the sketch: ......
I love this photo. I have wanted to scrap it for years but didn't know how I wanted it to look. However when I saw challenge 2.4

I just knew this was the perfect layout for this photo.
Paper: My Minds Eye/be loved
Paint: Maya Paint (Red)
Lettering: Thickers (Painted)
Mickey Mouse hat: Die Cut

Journaling: You will do just about anything to get me to laugh. We were hot, sticky and pretty much miserable from the Florida humidity. I was getting pretty cranky when you decided to put on 'these ears' to make me laugh.

Mission accomplished..
Challenge #14 What is your favorite outfit?

Paper: SEI/ Windsor Collection
Lettering: Thickers (painted)
Flower: Making Memories
Ribbon, gold cats eye, and gold stickle
Journaling: I love to wear this black dress. When I put it on I feel as if I've stepped right out of Camelot. It is so Jackie "O"!
