Can you feel the noise?
I've missed the last few Elle's Studio sketches, but I knew exactly which photo I wanted to use when I saw this week's sketch.
This photo just cracks me up every time I see it. It's from this past Christmas. When we're at my parent's house for dinner, we usually bathe the girls there before we head home so we can put them straight to bed. This time, their cousin Collin joined them. It was SO loud! Bathrooms in newer houses have those high ceilings and just echo, but boy were they having fun!
I used a fun mish mash of products. There's some October Afternoon, My Mind's Eye, CTMH, Punky Sprouts, and of course Elle's Studio. Sometimes it's just fun to surround yourself with a bunch of stuff and see what happens.
I added some hand drawn lines around the edges. It's an easy, quick, low-tech way to anchor your page. There's also a bit of machine stitching on that blue patterned piece. The title was cut using the Cricut Artiste cartridge. It's funny because my last layout had no title, and I seem to have over compensated a bit with this giant one.
Hope you are having a great day....half way to the weekend!
