Say Aaaaaah! Stuck Sketches April

Phew, so I'm really pushing it this month, but better late than never!

If I am able, I love playing along with the monthly sketches over at Stuck?! I was absolutely thrilled to recently learn that my entry was chosen as one of the winning layouts for Feb. Yay!

Poor Josh had to have two of his little teeth pulled out last month. They were just far too happy in his mouth, refusing to budge, even though their 'big brothers' were starting to push out behind them. Nothing to be done, but have them removed, so as to make space. Needless to say, it was a very big deal for the poor chap but I couldn't be prouder of my little super star!

This is my entry for the April 15th sketch

The 'a's alpha's are so precious, but I HAD to use them for the title! To make your own notebook effect, simply punch a row of holes with a single punch, and then snip the in-between sections unevenly, scrunching the bits leftover and maybe even removing a few of the pieces.

I am just loving the new Simple Stories Urban Traveller & 24/7 collections!

This Greatest View flair button works perfectly with this 24/7 collection. Don't forget to look out for the amazing new designs up for sale on Thursday evening!

This is the sketch... entries close 30th April (Australia time) why not try squeeze a layout in today ;)

Materials used: Simple Stories 24/7 'Gray Grid', Urban Traveler 'Lets Go', 24/7 3x4 Journaling Card Elements, 24/7 Fundamentals Cardstock stickers, various AC alphas, Imaginarium Designs chipboard alphas, Elle's Studio 'You & Me' tidbits, Greatest View '2013 Black & White' flair, sewing machine, Memento dye ink, Amy Tangerine 'Yes Please' phrase roller stamp
