What a wonderful Sunday morning! This is the last week of DD's vacation, school starts again next week. I am amazed how fast this summer has gone by. This week is all about getting to bed on time again, re-establishing routines, getting all items for school and so on. DS is much happier now that his two teeth have cut through and every day he is crawling faster and faster. 

Onto some scrappy stuff. 

I am still working on my June kit from Swirlydoos. It was filled with wonderful brown and green, masculine colors. I made this layout of my grandfather. Unfortunately, he died very early, I have only very few memories of him. I used the Creative Scrappers Sketch 220 as a basis.  

Here are some details. The clock was chalked with a dark brown tone, then I highlighted the numbers with white ink. To finish off, I glimmer misted it.

 Since the weather is so beautiful, we will pack up our little bundles of energy and go for a walk in the woods.

Thanks for stopping by!
All the best, 


  1. Such a wonderful page of your grandfather. I like the clock in there and the punch work.
    We are in the midst of getting ready for school here as well. We start on 9/4. I am not looking forward to it. Ben starts this year and it is all day. The girls were 1/2 day kindergarten where we lived then. So I still had time with them. Not ready to give up my time with him for the next 9 mo except for homework, dinner, bath and bed.. our routine for the school year. It's hard when it is your last one. He is so much fun!

  2. great take on the sketch. love the photos of your littles. good luck with the coming school year. hugs.

  3. Such a wonderful photo of your grandfather and so lovely that you have scrapped it to preserve the memory. Love what you've done with the sketch. :)
