Good times

The challenge over at Once Upon a Sketch is to use the sketch provided as well as this quote

Here is my take on it - almost everything is from the Swirlydoos October Kit.

I love this quote. It is so true. Who cares that to the right of my sweet son you can find a whole pile of unfolded laundry!  I just focus on him and his sister. They are important. Laundry will be done later but when they are awake, it's playtime. 

I stitched around the shape, which I cut out from a 12x12 paper. The title is from Heidi Swapps sentiments (just cut from different sections)

Prima and Petaloo goodness.  See his little tongue sticking out? So cute!

 The clock is from Fabscraps with lots of liquid pearls. 

Here is the journaling. In addition to the quote I have added: it is clear that this year is all about the family. The other things will be taken care of as well....later. October 2012

For the ornament at the top, I used 2 different colors of liquid pearls. I did not let it dry completely before adding the other color which made this cool "run in" effect.

Here is the tag pulled out. 

Yesterday, we spent the afternoon in the botanical garden. The light was GOLDEN!!!!!
