I did a lot of moving around after graduating high school...I lived somewhere new every year of college, I lived three different places before getting married, and my husband and I lived in two different apartments before we bought the house we now live in. I think I've packed my belongings about ten times in the last fifteen years? And I've never really minded...it was a good opportunity to purge my belongings and it was fun to unpack and find new places to put them. This was of course before children. We are currently in the process of selling our house and packing to move, and I'm realizing that doing that with two small children is just not fun. And we all keep getting sick too. First some bad colds and then a really nasty flu. We're finally all healthy again, but still surrounded by moving boxes, some already filled with non-essential items and others empty, waiting until the last possible moment to be filled with everything else. Of course I would normally consider my scrappy supplies to be on the "essential, need to use now" list, but I have had absolutely zero time to scrap for the last month. So sadly I think I must make the painful decision to leave out my most basic tools and just enough paper & embellishments to complete my required design team work and simply pack away all the rest. Maybe it will be a good time to purge...and I can focus on how fun & exciting it will be to unpack it all again!
Enough about that! Here is my take on this week's sketch at Let's Get Sketchy!
Here I scrapped photos from my husband's annual company dinner party in 2009. Santiago was almost a year old and it was our first over-night date. I remember how simply divine it was to just sleep in until we woke up the following morning! There is no title or journaling because this layout is actually a companion page to a layout I had already completed some time ago, but using another photos from the same night...so I thought I would also post that layout.
For the sketch on which I based the first layout, please head over to the Let's Get Sketchy! blog.
