Guitar Lesson

DS is finally down for a nap. So I want to quickly share my latest layout. I am so thankful, I can still stay home with my baby. When DD was that age, I was long back at work. What a difference it is. I have 103 days left of maternity leave and I will enjoy it as much as possible. I love my work, it is very rewarding, challenging and interesting (I am a music/drama/French teacher at a really nice school) but it is also very exhausting and at the moment, I need all my energy for my incredibly active 8month old and my quite challenging 1st grader! 

Here is the sketch from Let's Capture These Sketches 

The journaling reads: We have tried all summer to get Sarah interested in an "orchestra-compatible" instrument. In vain. Either the guitar or the drum set. So she started her lessons with TT. The first three weeks, practicing went really well, I hope this will remain this way. 

I used the AMAZING September kit from Swirlydoos. All Prima Romance Novel and other beauties. So pretty!

Here are some close ups. 

I am getting much better at adding more journaling. I have realized that this is really what will matter to my kids one day.

The title and the ornate plate from Tim Holtz.

And the butterfly! I used a bare wooden butterfly from Kaisercraft, added some picket fence distress ink, liquid pearls and dusted it with the glitter from the June Kit. 

Next layout will be again about my boy. My little girl keeps track of how many pictures I scrap of her and him.... so funny. 

To keep the balance on this post as well, here is a short video from this morning. 

Thanks for stopping by!
All the best,
