Happy Sunday everyone! As some of of you may have noticed, not only did I have a brief hiatus from scrapbooking during our moving process, but I also have not posted as a design team member of Let's Get Sketchy since July. I had the great pleasure of serving as both a design team member and also a sketch designer with Let's Get Sketchy since the time of its conception back in March 2012, but I felt that at this point in time I needed to step away from design team duties and responsibilities and to focus on just my scrapbooking. So now that I've gotten back into it at full force, it was super fun to get to play along with their newest sketch. And, oh, if you haven't visited the Let's Get Sketchy blog for a few months then you might be surprised to discover that for the first and fourth weeks of the month there is now a mood board along with the sketch. Double inspiration, friends!
And here's my take on the sketch and mood board...
When Santiago was a baby, he adored sitting on my lap and having me read books, but as he grew increasingly mobile his patience for book-reading diminished. He became the stereotypical boy-on-the go, only stopping when he was sleeping. I realized then that he was probably not going to be much of a book-reader once he learned to read, which was a bit disappointing to me as I could get lost in a good book all day long easily! Sure enough, getting him to do any of his language art homework has been a struggle since day one of Kinder. We have finally turned a bit of a corner when he discovered graphic novels as well as nonfiction books about subject matter he's interested in. So on rare occasions I'll find him curled up on the couch reading a Minecraft manual or Star Wars graphic novel, and of course I feel the need to document these monumental moments lol!
Thanks for looking!
