{Sketchy Sunday}

The Paper Bakery has a new sketch challenge, so I thought I would play along!  Here's the layout I came up with:
(grid paper: Making Memories, date stickers: Jenni Bowlin, everything else Echo Park)
and here's the sketch I used.

I turned the sketch upside down, and printed my 6 photos to look like little photo strips like you get out of a photo booth. I hand stitched the number 3 with some embroidery floss. Love that little extra the stitching adds! Taking Gracie to the party store to pick out plates and napkins for her 3rd birthday party was quite the day, and was way too much of a story to fit on front of the layout. I wrote a letter to her on the back about how the minute she saw the Strawberry Shortcake plates she wanted them, and even though we looked at all the rows of party supplies, 2 times, she never changed her mind. I also wrote about finding this cute little ribbon for her to wear on her shirt the day of her birthday, but she didn't quite understand and wanted to wear it as soon as we got home, and everyday for the next 2 weeks ;)
I love these pics of her the morning of her birthday, showing off her ribbon!

If you are scrapping on this fine Sunday afternoon, why not play along at The Paper Bakery too?
Thanks for stopping by!
