Sketch N Scrap #131 - Big Sister Little Brother

Hello, everyone! I am back with my second post of the day! If you are looking for my CCAYR reveal, please scroll down or go here.

I am back with the second layout sketch from Sketch N Scrap. This is a great two photo sketch and it is courtesy of Heather.

For this layout, I have used Shimelle's - Little By Little - papers, and also a paper from Pebbles' - Special Delivery - Boy - 6x6 paper pad for the embellishments. I really didn't think the stickers and die cuts from the Little By Little collection really went with the feel that I was going for, and the Pebbles paper pad was a great match, so I punched three circles from the Pebbles cut apart sheet to turn into embellishment. I added in a couple of vellum hearts and a few wooden stars, and I like the way this turned out!

These photos are of Abby and Matthew when Matthew was just 3 months old - he is now 19! Abby was not thrilled at all when we first told her she was going to be a big sister. She kept asking, "Are your sure?" I think as time went on she warmed up to the fact and by the time Matthew arrived, she was wanting to help out with everything - and she was (and still is!)  a great helper! Her favorite thing to do was to hold him and to feed him.

Head on over to Sketch N Scrap to see the wonderful layouts from the rest of the design team. I hope you give this sketch a try and a play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I will be back soon with one more project to share with  you!
