April Sketchy Challenge

Easter has come and gone, so it must be April!  And that means a new sketch from Sue Sykes over at Canadian Scrapbooker...

I decided to have some fun with the pretty collection "Vintage Bliss" from Simple Stories.
Here is my layout...

BabyOfTheFamily has a wonderful new friend in junior high who has the same goofy sense of humour.  When these two get together, there is lots of laughter and joking around.  I took these pics during one of their sleepovers, and they are both wearing the same 'onesies' pj's...piggy style.

This Simple Stories collection has wonderful patterned papers that I cut apart to embellish my layout. I think I stuck EVERYTHING down with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Foam Squares!

I created that fun background with Maya Road twine and a hole punch.  If you would like to see how I did this and also watch how I put this layout together, you can watch this video tutorial.
