(Erin) "Bath Time" Stuck?! April 15th Sketch
Well, good morning! Long time no see! We made it back Monday night from our trip to visit my husband's family and my daughter and I returned with a case of strep throat, so I'm feeling quite miserable- thankfully she got on antibiotics on Sunday and seems to be improving. I, however, just got on some antibiotics yesterday (stupid me thought I could beat it without them!) and, 24 hours later, feel no better. So hoping that changes.
It was quite a feat for me to actually get a scrappy page done- I always stand when I scrap, but as sick as I am, I can't stand for very long. So I actually completed this page pretty quickly and honestly, I don't know how I feel about it. I really had something better in mind...but with as foggy a mind as I have right now, that picture just wasn't real clear to me anymore...
But alas, here we are. I based my layout on the April 15th sketch over at Stuck?! Sketches, and I'm so glad I was able to play along there this month. Being so busy with other things, I really have to pick and choose which challenges I want to do as my design team commitments take up the majority of my scrap time.
So here you have it:
Based on this great sketch:
Some closies (yep, I know it's not a word but I'm so sick of using the word "close-ups", lol...):
I used the beautiful Prima "Almanac" line for this one, which I actually won in a RAK from Maiko, during the Once Upon A...Sketch blog hop! Thanks Maiko!!
I wrote my hidden journaling on this tag behind my photo:
My journaling reads:
"Yep, for now this is how we bathe the kids- in our shallow kitchen sink. In the summer we don't even have to heat the water because it's so hot out that the kids don't mind a luke-warm bath. And they really do love bath time- they grab some toys and get right in! - You can definitely tell we don't have running water by how excited they get! But before long, Wyatt won't be able to fit anymore :(- so we'll have to upgrade to a tub suppose- and maybe even get ourselves some running water! Wyatt, age 3 1/2, Summer 2011"
I'd better get going. It's about lunch time and the younger two will be waking up soon from their naps- time to put on the Mac & Cheese!! :)
See you soon,xErin
