a sketch support layout

Today is the last day of Two-page Week over at Sketch Support. The week has been full of wonderful layouts from the SS Creative Team and the sketch is a great one for those of you that love using lots of photos and lots of paper too!

I simplified mine a little since I tend to use smaller amounts of patterned paper. I wish I could simplify my spending but for some reason, even though I don't use a ton of paper, I still get two sheets of each paper I like.

Supplies - Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye; Cardstock: Bazzill; Chipboard alphabet (grandma): American Crafts; Sticker alphabet (Mary Lou): October Afternoon; Embellishments: My Mind's Eye; Butterfly punch: Martha Stewart; Embroidery floss: DMC

Last year, when the boys found out we were going to a party at the store for Grandma Mary Lou (or Mary "Woo" as Jackson would say) they starting working on homemade birthdays cards for her. Jackson's mostly consisted of scribbles. Drew used the opportunity to practice some of his writing and spelling skills that he was learning in Kindergarten at the time. His special little note was so cute! I think Grandma Mary Lou really enjoyed the homemade cards!

Tomorrow we are having a "Meet the Creative Team" blog hop. You'll start at Sketch Support and hop along to each creative team member's blog. There's a new sketch, lots of giveaways, and you'll get to see how each member used the sketch! It's sure to be a lot of fun! :)

I love what you did with the sketch--so lovely, it just zooms in on those special pictures. Funny, I used the same grey wood paper--it's a dream!
