For this week's Simple Sketches sketch I decided to break away from just doing a scrapbook page. I offered to make a good friend of mine something to hang on her bedroom wall. She's one of my favorite people ever so I was really excited make something awesome for her. I used a 12x12 piece of wood that I had lying around at home for this. I misted the wood with Glimmer Mist and then used it like a canvas. I also used the October Kit Mixed Media from Frosted Designs. It was a lot of fun to get and I had a great time working with it. On top of the kid I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink, more Glimmer Mist and molding paste.

Another great sketch from Simple Sketches this week! I had fun scrapbooking some pre-Kirk photos. This was from a friends vacation back in 2011. We had a great time visiting the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. It's such a beautiful place to visit. I used Basic Grey papers, Tim Holtz Distress inks, molding paste, and Maya Mist.

This week at Simple Sketches we've got another great sketch for you! I created this page using some more or Kirk's newborn photos. I'll be done scrapping them soon. Then I'll finally be able to get to work scrapping some of his 6 month photos and 1 year photos and 18 month photos too. Plus all the normal candid photos that we take on a daily basis. By the time I'm done with those I'll probably have the photos of his high school graduation to work on! I guess no one said being a mom left you with a lot of time to have hobbies! I used a Basic Grey collection, but I can't for the life of me remember the name of it. I also used a healthy dose of glimmer mist and ink.

Once again this week I couldn't help myself when I saw the sketch for Simple Sketches. It wasn't my week, but I loved this sketch so much that I got right to work on a page anyway. These are a few of Kirk's newborn photos. I can't believe that he's already 20 months old. In my head he is still that sweet and squishy newborn baby. I use Echo Park's This and That paper line for this page. I just love that line. Amazingly I didn't use any ink or mist on this page. I just kept it clean and simple. Crazy, huh?!

Head over to Simple Sketches this week to check out the awesome new sketch available. I was really excited when I saw this sketch. I used a few photos of a deer that we saw while we were hiking last month. One went right by us, but the other one stopped to check out. It was a pretty cool experience and Kirk was totally floored. I used Glimmer mist, thickers and some scraps for this page.

Check out this week's sketch over at Simple Sketches! This wasn't even my week to create a page for this sketch! I just really loved it and it got me scrapping so I went ahead and created a page anyway. These photos are from Kirk's 1 month photos that I took. I'm really happy with how the page turned out.
