September Sketch from Simple Stories

Time for another sketch from Simple Stories! Still procrastinating about scrapping those delicate and adorable baby photos you have lying around?  I know...the time goes by so fast and who wants to spend their time scrapping when the time could be spent holding the baby before he/she gets too big.  Well, now that the wee ones are grown it is time to get those photos out and make a page with the most PERFECT collection from Simple Stories - Baby Steps.  Above is a sketch I created to go along with a page about my beautiful new niece, who still happens to be small enough to hold.
This is my little sister's first baby and she is so precious.  Rarely cries and when she does has one of those cute little cries that makes you say, "Bless her heart."  Not at all like my 3 year old son who has this piercing scream that will make you give him anything including the remote, a carbonated beverage, a bag of chips or whatever it takes to keep that child from screaming.  Guess they come in all shapes and sizes.  For now we will just concentrate on this little angel.
The Simple Stories cardstock stickers make the perfect embellishment.  I love to use foam tape to lift them off the page and a bit of chalk ink to give them some dimension.  This tree is just precious.
Love to create titles using the Cardstock Stickers and some of the Journal Spots from the Expressions 12 x 12 sheet.  This one is really cute.  Just added some cardstock to matte the sticker and a little ink for definition and then lifted it off the page with some foam tape.

Who isn't crazy about these sweet little blocks.  Had to use them to top off my page.
