Easter, 2010-- Colten ~ Sketches In Thyme --Top 3 over at Lasting Memories

Good morning everyone!!!  It's Thursday and time for another awesome sketch challenge over at Sketches In Thyme..  I'm sad to say that this will be my last post as a Design Team Member here at Sketches In Thyme...   I have been on this wonderful team since inception and I have thoroughly enjoyed it, but I feel like it's time to step down and make way for some new faces and fresh talent.  But don't worry, I'll be back, but this time as a stalker instead!!!  LOL... 
 Okay on with the challenge!!!  Our sketch this week is from My Crop Room and here it is..


And, is it just me, or have the last 2 sketches for Team A seemed hard for you too?!! I guess that's why it's a challenge!! Right...   Anyway this one turned out to be a piece of cake...  And I will be using this one more for those pages where you have memorabilia, like programs, vacation pamphlets, napkins and so forth and so on!  Because if you look at this sketch it looks like a big envelope, doesn't it?!  And I think it would be fun to make an envelope out of it to hold all of those precious items you want to keep...   I should have thought of this earlier...  But I will be back with another layout using this sketch for sure!!!
Anyway here are a few close ups of my layout of sweet little GS Colten on his first real Easter Egg Hunt...  He was 17 months old last Easter and was having a blast..  Notice the little boo-boo on his forehead..  I think he has a permanent knot there where he has hit it so many times... Poor baby!!!

Okay here you can see a close up of this beautiful BoBunny Gabrielle Paper and Die cut... The little chipboard is from Basic Grey and you can see some of my many buttons....


Here I used the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Pendants - Fair Isle for the frames around the smaller photos!!  I sponged the frame with some Tim Holtz Distressing Ink..


Here's the other frame..


Here is a chipboard journaling block from Basic Grey and the flourish is from BoBunny Cardstock Stickers-Grow Love..

Here are a few other challenges this layout will qualify for...
