 I came across a cool Sketch Blog this week called Stuck?! Sketches

I love working from a sketch as it makes scrapping so easy!

I whipped this layout up as I was waiting for my Vintage Layout Students to arrive.

I had some extra packages of Bo Bunny Somewhere in time Noteworthy, so I thought it would be perfect to create the layers in the Sketch, which you can find

I showed Jon my layout, of which I was proud. I love this picture of he and Dad, working on a project together. It looked to me as if they were observing something, thus the title.

Jon indicates that it was the day he was learning to use the cement saw and that they weren't observing anything at all. Observations, he said, is not a good title. When I asked him what I could title it, he indicated  a "time when Jon and Grandpa were working together and not at each other's throats"...hmmmm that would be a long title and besides, I don't have rub on's that reflect that! lol

I'm going to stick with observing the two of them working together cooperatively and just happening to capture the moment.

to add a little extra dimension the to craft cardstock, I sponged over with a stencil.
To finish off the page. I used some vintage metal embellies from Prima Marketing.
I thinkg the "timeless" metal is from CTMH

I've been in a bit of a scrapping mood lately........well actually, just in creative mode in general. It's wonderful to have my mojo back!

It's pretty chilly here today. I've been flat out on my back since Wed night,  so my first venture out into the cold weather to take Syd for a brief walk was crispy to say the least!

Looking forward to some indoor recreation tomorrow at Yoga Class

Happy Scrappin' and enjoy the rest of your weekend~
