Spring fever ~ Colten ~ Stuck On U Sketches


Happy Friday everyone!!!  I'm soooo excited because this is my first post as one of the new designers over at Stuck On U Sketches!!!  And boy do they know how to start us off right..   Why? you ask.. because our first sketch is a beautiful 2 pager ~ from Sketchy Thursdays,
 and ~ just look at the photos you can use on this one.....  So for all of you who love to do 2 pagers and to use multiple photos this one's for you!!!  And for those of you who are a little hesitant, remember, you have 2 weeks to play, and that's plenty of time to make something wonderful...  Please dont' forget to upload all of your fabulous creations so we can all see them!!! 

Here's my take on this week's sketch.. 
The photo's are of my little GS Colten and his daddy, and was taken March 28, 2010...  It seemed like this year stayed a little cooler than usual around springtime, and the grand kids were sooo wanting to play in their fort/sandbox/boat that their grandpa had built them...  This was really the first time this year that their mommy would let them go outside and play for any length of time...   Colten was having a blast!! His daddy would put him up on the slide and then let him slide down ~ and he would just laugh and laugh!!  While I was putting this layout together I kept trying to wipe the sand off of Colten's hood.....lol  You can see why below....

Okay moving on... Here are a few close ups ~ actually, here are the two pages individually...
This is the left side...


Here's the right side... 
As you can see I did a lot of distressing on these two pages..  To me it just makes this one more boyish!!  The chipboard flourish on the bottom left and top right is from Dusty Attic...  I don't think I have a close up of it...

 
Here's a close up of the cute sun I cut out with the Silhouette SD... I think it's soo cute...  And of course here's a close up of Colten, and he's also toooo cute.....  There is one of my crumpled prima flowers, and you can also see the fun paper I got in my Swirlydoos kit this month... It's got butterflies, cocoons and worms all over it, and it worked out perfectly for this "little guy" page!!


I used the Silhouette SD to cut the word Spring out..  Here is a close up of more of my distressing...


This tree is from Webster's Pages and I inked it with SU Always Artichoke Ink.. You can also see one of the K&Company Butterflies here...


And finally this is a fun sticker I found and just look at the colors ~ they are perfect for this layout...  And another K&Company Butterfly..  I think I used 4 total...

Here are a few other challenges that this will qualify for:
A Spoon Full of Sugar ~ Fall Colors
Alphabet Challenge ~ U for Unused stash ~ I have had this graphic 45 paper for quite a while but just couldn't find the right photos to go with it...  I always buy 2 pieces of paper when I buy just in case I want to use the other side on the same layout... Good thing I did, it turned out perfect for this 2 pager..  The sticker (100% Boy) is also very old....

Here is my scrappy list!
Graphic 45 ~ Domestic Goddess Collection ~ Tea Time
Graphic 45 ~ Renaissance Faire Collection ~ Tudor Rose
SU Really Rust
SU Haiku Designer Series Paper7 gypsies paper (butterflies with cocoons and worms..) ~ from this months swirlydoos kit..

Thanks for dropping by and please check out the fabulous layouts from the other girls..  I guarantee you won't be disappointed..  We would also love for you to play along...  Remember you have 2 weeks to play and if you do, please upload it so we all can see....
