Catching Up

 I wanted to do a LO of the Children's Musical/Play "Spend Awhile On the Nile", but didn't take any pics. I did at least have a program! As the snake journaling block states it was "Debbie Haagen's Last Children's Musical/Dinner Theater with BCCC". The bottom journaling block states that "The kids all loved singing every song & all their parts. You could tell by the excitement on their faces!"  The paper is DCWV All About Boys Stack, the "Adventure Bound" sticker & fish sticker are both Momenta from a huge set of stickers that I bought at TJ Maxx $30 worth for about $4! The snake journaling block was given to me in a RAK from Sandi. The bottom brown journaling block was in a book, I don't remember the name of it. It was white in the middle to begin with and I colored it with Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Ink Currant and Meadow! The blue outline is Stickles. The balloon and string are Hallmark stickers for a birthday celebration, but the kids did have balloons in the performance is why I included a balloon! The blue dots on the paper are water dots and made with Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Ink Meadow. I also highlighted some water "waves" with Stickles Waterfall and Blue.
 I have been saving this pic to do with these papers for awhile. I saw it when I was looking for paper for the previous LO so I decided to complete it! This picture is of Tyler on "Sturdy Beggar outside the NC History Center at Tryon Palace". All the paper is All About Boys Stack 12x12 and 6x6 (even the pic mat). The title is stickers from a book that I bought from TJ Maxx that included the journaling block in the previous LO that I can't remember the name of. My dad bought this pirate hat for Tyler at a shop in Beaufort when they were here to visit last Thanksgiving. We kept saying "arrgh" like pirates and I think we should have been saying "yarr"! lol That's why I included all the sayings pirates say over the picture!

I did this LO following the above sketch for Sketches in Thyme. I've always liked Thomas Kinkade and love lighthouses. I chose this post card- Clearing Storms to do this LO with! It's from "Seaside Memories IV and Published 1997" as the journaling states under it. The paper is Colorbok Summer. I thought the lines on the paper kinda resemble waves. The brown polka dot paper is Recollections Cupcake Creations 8.5x11 paper pack, the blue water spot paper is Colorbok Textures, and the title stickers and the other stickers are Colorbok Summer. The zigzagged banner is K&Company that I bought from TJ Maxx as well. I may retake a pic of this LO. It is really dark on my screen. I have until June 30 to post to Sketches in Thyme, I believe. Please comment and let me know what you think before I link it to Sketches in Thyme! TFL!
