{ My Mind's Eye blog challenge #15 }

I have been on this layout kick lately! I made 9 layouts in 9 days!!! Must be all the wonderful challenges at My Scrapbook Nook

I fell in love with this sketch from My Mind's Eye blog. I have decided to play along and use all my favorite papers that I have been saving.

Here is my take on the sketch. I mixed Lost & Found with Life Stories collection papers and added embellishments from So Sophie and Breaking Free collections. I cut the banner from patterned paper that I strung on twine and tied. I inked the edges and added machine stitching to the page.
The photos are of Alex playing with chalk. It was a really quiet moment as I watched him scribble on the ground. Soon after that he was up again, running around and chasing bubbles. I am so thankful for him and sweet moments like this.




This past weekend we went to a Balloon Festival in Plano. Alex  had a blast. We stayed until the very end and watched the fireworks. He was saying he wasn't tired as I was putting him to bed at 11:30 pm.

    The balloon festival must have been a blast...I can just picture Alex with his sweet eyes just taking it all in.

    {{{{HUGS}}}} to you and your precious family! Your trip sounded so wonderful...I got tears in my eyes as I pictured you and Alex with your Mom and all your family. They must have been just delighted to have you and Alex there!
