Welcome to another installment of Sketchy Thursdays.  And YES!  It's a traditional layout!!!!!   (Admittedly I almost had a hard time not doing this one digi.  I'm hooked!)

I've been holding on to these pictures for, well, 6 years considering this little boy is now 7 and he's 11 months here.  Time to scrap those puppies.  This was his first trip to the beach.  He had a great time.  A litle digging.  A little flinging.  A little eating.  (Yup!  If you take a closer look at the middle picture his mouth is lousy with the sand he's been munching on.)

Loving my little faux dew drops...there's a tutorial for how to make them coming up in Scrapbook News and Review the last Sunday of March.  (Did you hear - we're publishing twice a month now!  The second Sunday of each month will be chock full of all the eye candy.  The last Sunday OEM will have all the awesome tutorials and paper crafting articles.)

I've been playing with my mists a lot in the last couple days, too.  (And I've got blood-red fingers to show for it.  The Tsukineko walnut inks are very intense and stain big time.  My son freaked out thinking his head was bleeding again when he saw my hands, LOL.)

Of course, this layout is based on this week's sketch:

Sketchy Thursdays is also partnering with SRM Stickers this week.  We got to play with some of their newly released stickers.  Have I mentioned I love SRM Stickers?  Seriously.  They blend so well into the background paper. 

Speaking of blood red and the boy...I'm happy to report he's doing fine.  It's a challenge washing his hair but otherwise it doesn't bother him at all.  (Gotta remember to make the appointment to get the staples taken out.)

So, are you wearing your green today?  Do you do anything special for St. Patrick's Day?  We don't although if you have some corned beef and cabbage you want to send my way I'm all over it!  Love it!  Sometimes I make the effort to make it for St. Pat's but I just didn't bother this year.   I do love this day, however, just because green is my favorite color, LOL!

Oh, the May calls are up for Scrapbook News and Review.  Check out my sidebar for the link to see the call descriptions.  Check out the sketch!  It's mine!!  :oD

Have a green and lucky day!
