life. brothers.

life has been happening between blog posts, some days have been hectic while others we have been enjoying being together without a BUSY schedule.  while life has been happening some exciting blog posts have been happening at Scrapbook Circle that I have been a part of!  For example this month's sketch by Diana Fisher is up:
isn't it GREAT?!  you have until the 23rd to play along!  All the details can be seen HERE.
here is my take:
I had a great time using up cut scraps from other layouts and using cuts on this layout...these pictures crack me up!  I took them the first day of school, I was looking for a different background (the gray fence), I think I got ONE great shot the rest of the pictures I got were goofy--I "think" they might have been excited for the first day of school! :)  I finally used some Gesso...yes, I know what took me so long? lol!  I bought a small bottle from Michael's a few months ago and it's been sitting on my desk BEGGING to be used.  I really liked the look and plan on using it again!
some fun closeups:
 you can see the gesso here:
 happy Tuesday to you--I'm off to make some chocolate chip pancakes!
