I Wanna Be Like Matt

Hello everyone! Happy Thursday to you! Usually I am looking forward to Thursday because it means the weekend is almost here. This week it just means that our spring break is almost over! Oh well, just a little over a month and a half and we will be out for summer vacation anyway!

I am finally getting a chance to play along with our Throwback Thursday over at Sketch N Scrap! This week our hostess is Katty, and she has chosen this sketch from August 2014 for us to work with.

This is one of my favorite sketches, too, so I was happy when Katty picked it! 

Since Abby and Matthew were both wearing neutral colors, and since it was a pretty grey day outside, I decided to go with some fun - bright papers. The background is a really light grey cardstock. I know it probably looks like white with some bad lighting - but it really is a light grey!

These photos were taken last May on Mother's Day weekend. We were getting ready to go over to my sister's house for a family party and Matthew was showing how he could grab a hold of the rim on the basketball goal on the highest setting. Abby decided she wanted to see how close she could get to the rim....yeah, not too close! She is almost a foot shorter than her little brother, so maybe we should have lowered the goal to the lowest setting for her!

When I saw these photos, all I could think of was the old Michael Jordan commercials where they would sing, "I wanna be like Mike". I figure that was probably what Abby was thinking when she was jumping - except substitute Matt for Mike!

Be sure to check out the Sketch N Scrap blog to see the layouts that the rest of the team created using this sketch. I hope you find some time to play along with us. We have one more Throwback Thursday sketch coming your way next week!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
