SKetches and spots-fun fun

So this week over at Once Upon a Sketch they posted another awesome sketch and the journaling challenge was to journal on a journaling spot. EASY PEESY huh!

Well as soon as I saw the sketch I knew exactly what I was gonna do-GOSH I love when I get instantly inspired like that. I had just gotten some of the Jillibean Dutch Mustard Soup papers. ANd can you believe I just bought some journaling sprouts-what in the world is wrong with me??? Those things are awesome-I have since bought 3 other sets-yep I am addicted. But I have an obsession with journaling spots so this challenge was a great way to dig in and use some of them up. Did you know they are not just for journaling-they are great for an embellishment for for your title placement-if the area you want to put your title is too buzy well stick a journaling spot in there to ground your title.

So off to my lo-well I have had these pics of my son - who btw is now ten, for along time. I love his lil sweet self in the photos but i absolutely HATE HATE these kind of cheezy backgrounds. As long as I have had children I would never let the photographers use those dumb things. Anyways his g-parents took him one Sunday after Church and had his pic made, so the background police wasnt there to put a stop to this. Well he looks so dang cute with his lil feet crossed and his chubby lil hands clapping I had to scrap them anyways. On my lo I combined some old JB pp with the new Dutch mustard soup becuz I wanted to focus on the #2, since he was two in the pictures. And with that came the sketch having 2 photos, and I carried the theme into my stitching-I did 2 lil hand stitches different places on the lo and 2 different fonts used in the title. Hope you enjoy and just maybe learned a lil something today.
