I Am A Big Brother

Hi you all :) I hope your having a fantastic weekend. I have been doing laundry and cleaning up a bit here myself. It's a beautiful day so I've hung clothes out to dry, just love spring days like this.
This is a layout I did for the sketchathon over at My Scraps & More forum. This is from sketch #3 and it's from that box of memories that I'm working through this month. Not even a dent into it yet so maybe continuing it through next month also. Just have to wait and see what happens next week with it as I continue with the sketches:
This was the next picture to do that was in my box of memories. Zachary holding his little brother Tristan at the hospital. He looks so proud, can't believe that was over a year ago. Here is the sketch I used:

The only other thing was this one had a twist and some of them will have something else to do with it other than the sketch: This one has just a little twist....add some mist, paint, spray or ink to your page!
I added the sei Tumble Dye mist, that is in my current counterfeit kit, to various spots on the layout It's like a golden yellow, bringing in more yellow from the frame around the picture and the CTMH yellow arrow washi tape. The title work is done with the gold letters in my kit too. The heart swirl was sitting on my desk from another project and I added that to the layout too. The heart swirl file is from Creative Pointe Valentine Hearts set
 I used a very old scrapbook kit for the hello baby frame, the heart stickers and the baby/balloon stickers I used my SU chevron punch for the chevron arrows pointing to the picture
My journaling block was from the PL cards that are in my current kit. Also added the baby boy dimensional sticker to cover the noted spot on the card. A good layout for Tristan's 1st year book. All the papers and that fun yellow arrows washi tape is in my current counterfeit kit.
You all have a good weekend :)


  1. Awww, this layout is so cute Tina! I love Zachary's expression and huge smile, he is indeed very proud of his new baby brother! Now that his baby brother is a year and a half is he still excited over him? I hope so! Great sketch and love your take on it Tina! Hugs, Brenda

  2. Such a sweet layout. Great interpretation of the sketch.

  3. Such a bright, happy page - the look on his face is priceless!
    He looks so thrilled :-) Yet another page with your April CKC kit.

  4. Oh I have a similar page of my boy holding his little sister - such a wonderful memory to have recorded.
