I love these photos of Susie! I took them two weeks ago while she was sitting with me in the playroom/scraproom playing on her laptop. I just kept snapping away and she started laughing because I was embarrasing her! There are at least 20 photos in the series but these three just stood out. I hope that she always keeps the sweetness she has right now. She's such a pretty and happy little girl who has just amazed me with her inner strength. Some of you may not know that their dad passed away suddenly a few years ago and I am so proud of the way my kids came through what will hopefully be the hardest time of their lives. I may be biased, but I have the BEST kids in the world!!
Anyway, I saw the sketch over at Sketches In Thyme using a sketch from Helen Croft. I have used Helen's sketches quite a bit over the last 2 years but don't think I ever did this one! I think it worked great with these photos! If you haven't visited Sketches In Thyme yet, you really should! The "Mavens" over there do some awesome work and several of them happen to be my very favorite bloggers as indicated in my post below!! The site is run by Kim and Debbie, Barb and Brenda are all Mavens there! I also created this layout with a Challenge over at A Cherry On Top in mind. The Summer Crop was this past weekend and while I couldn't be there for most of it, I am working on the Challenges. This one was to take inspiration from a piece of clothing. I used my daughter's Hollister t-shirt as inspiration. Here's the shirt:
