He was "born on beat"...

Hi! and thanks for stopping in! This is my only son Kevin, almost 30.  His passion is music; I am so glad he has a passion!  This picture was snapped of him last week during a video shoot for a local band.  I always threaten to cut off the hair but I love the picture.... This was done for the monthly challenge at Scrap365 and  challenge for April...

such a ham at 10 1/2 mos!

Hi Everyone!  This LO was done for many challenges but the basis of the entire LO was for letsgetsketchy/  I turned this sketch sideways-it's always fun and challenging to change it up!  Here is the sketch:

My take:
This is my niece, Marrah, at 10 1/2 mos.
Her 1st vaca last week to visit my mom

About a boy....

As usual, I try to complete a LO for more than 1challenge.  The following LO was done primarily for myscrapsandmoresketches #70.  I really love their sketches; they are so open to making them your own.  I also had a challenge to use corrugated shapes.  Can you imagine that I have had a drawer full of corrugated shapes purchased from the ABC catalog about 10years ago??!!!  That challenge was for Scrappy Patch -a group on CafeMom.  Thanks for peaking in today!
The sketch:

My LO:
I can't stop looking at the innocence
 in that top picture! those eyes...
