Zach - Cool Dude ~ Sketches In Thyme ~ Fern's Sketch No. 3!!

Hello!!! It's Thursday and that means it's time for another wonderful sketch challenge over at Sketches In Thyme!!!  This week we have an "OPEN" challenge and that means you can use any sketch you like, but you need to upload the sketch with your layout..   And this week I have a little surprise for you all... I designed my own sketch, and here it is...
I had so much fun designing this sketch and I will have some more to share later...  If you like this one, please, feel free to use it!!!

For my layout I decided to use this cute photo of little GS Zach that my DD posted on FB...  She had just cut his hair and is looks adorable.... especially with those little monkey shoes!!!!  He did great as long as he had his own comb!!!  lol  Too cute!!!  I even used some of my old, old, old, paper stash... and some scraps... 

Here are a few close ups:
Here you can see my distressed edges, buttons, Glitter Butterfly stickers and it's hard to see but there is a transparancy overlay under the buttons....  see the leafy vines? 

The title is a sticker and I used stickles on "Dude".  You can see the glitter in this close up better!!!

Here is my the flower and another glitter butterfly sticker... along with one of the distressed corners..

Here is the brown lace and the MS Daisy Fan punched border..

And here is a hidden tag with the date....

And here is the tag pulled out.... I left it blank so my DD can journal what happened...

And here is my sweet little GS Zach sitting there with his little monkey shoes on...  So cute...  You can also see another decorative border punch with the MS Double Edge Punch.

Here is my list of scrappy things I used:
Powder Blue CS
My Minds Eye Wild Asparagus Collection
Scrap scraps
MS Double Edge Punch
MS Deep Edge Punch Daisy Fan
Flower and Vine
Stick on letters

Be sure and check out the other beautiful layouts from the Mavens and then go find your favorite sketch and play along....  Remember this is the last chance at January's fabulous prize!!! 

Thanks for dropping by!!!
Have a wonderful day!!!
Pin It!

Power and heat have been out for 15 hours. We were just packing up to head to a hotel and it came back on. Thanks God, I am frozen. Keeping my fingers crossed that it stays on and we have heat. Still lots of ice on the roads .. or so I hear. Take care.
