Setchy Thursdays!

 I did the following layout for the sketch on the Sketchy Thursdays blog, unfortunately with all the time I had to waste in the hospital this week (so glad that s over!) and feeling sick I only finished it off late last night so did not have it done in time!  They had a sketch for a double layout this week, which makes a change so I enjoyed trying it.  I do prefer to do single layouts but I take so many photos that I do end up doing all sorts of doubles with loads of photos!

This is my layout for the sketch, I just love these photos of my youngest DS, he is watching TV so he can not take his eyes of the television as he is always so fixated on it, which is what the layout is about.

I used My Minds Eye Star Bright papers and had lots of fun making some Little pins for the page after seeing it on the My ordinary life blog, I will definitely be making some more of them so I am going to have to find some interesting bead shapes to go on them! :)

I also just had to show you the totally fantastic prize I received from Nikki Sivils!  For National Scrapbooking Day they had the most amazing blog hop and I left a comment on Anna Bowkis' blog Scrapping Tonight and was lucky enough to get picked for the prize!   I was asked which paper line I would like and chose Victoria's Street as I love that one but don't own it and was expecting to just receive the papers.  Well this is what arrived yesterday...

The 12x12 papers as well as a 6x6 pad of all the papers and a gorgeous chipboard house mini album, sticker, bread(less) tags, little craft flags and two packs of very yummy buttons.  One set are corduroy buttons and the others are the burlap buttons which are just gorgeous!  Is that not a totally amazing giveaway!  I must say I was just dancing around the house after that was delivered :)  My fingers are just itching to get started with it :D
