It's nice to take some time to play along with challenges every once in a while, and I always love the sketches for the Sketch Thursday challenges at Elle's Studio.  I have been hoarding...I mean using...a lot of their new collections, Love You More and Everyday moments.  One of my favorite things about the Elle's collections, is that they are so perfect for creating layouts for your everyday photos, which are my favorite kind to scrap.  So one of my mottos is, "you can never have too much Elle's Studio, in your scrappy stash!!".  I used a mix of Love You More and Everyday Moments for my take on the Sketch, and I also incorporated some tags from the March Limited Edition Kit, as well as the March Cut Files.

Here's the story behind the photos on this page...the kids don't nap anymore, except for maybe an occasional doze when we are riding in the car.  Well, that's what happened with our little guy.  He fell asleep in the car, on the way home from dropping big sis off for her piano lessons.  He has always been a light sleeper, so I knew (or thought I knew) that he would probably wake right up as soon as we got in the driveway.  And he did, but only long enough to make it inside.  Then he plopped down in the hallway and I went into one of the other rooms for a few minutes.  When I came back out, he was still there.  I walked over to check on him, and he was fast asleep again, using his PupPup for a pillow!  HA!  I moved him to the couch and thought for sure that would wake him up, but nope, he went right back to sleep and ended up getting in an hour and a half nap!  Too bad all three of them won't do that everyday, anymore!  I am a big fan of naps!!  :)

Supplies:  Patterned Paper, Wood Veneers, Tags & Cut Files:  Elle's Studio; Enamel Dots:  My Mind's Eye; Date Stamp:  American Crafts; Phrase Stamp:  October Afternoon:  Chalking Ink:  Quick Quotes
