toothless.....

Good Saturday Morning,
I do hope you are safe and warm this morning. The "Powerhouse Storm", as the Weather Channel is calling it is beginning to bring some more snow my way. If you are in the path of or have already been hit by this one, I do hope you are in your scrappy space, warm, and crafty away!
This morning I am sharing the Friday Sketch from Ann Katrin at Practical Scrappers. Doesn't she do the most incredible sketches? So easy to design with...here's this weekend's sketch,


Since my little 5 year old nephew, Jon-Christopher lost not one, but BOTH bottom teeth last Saturday evening, I thought I'd scrap his "toofless" picture. I really should have titled it just as he said it, "Toofless". You can click the photo for up close on the journaling.
My "Tooth Fairy Cynthia" is an exclusive from The Stamping Boutique. When I saw her, I knew I had to have her for this layout. My Honeybee was uncertain that I could make her work on a "boy" page. I assured him to never underestimate the power of a woman with watercolors in her hand!!!! I think I proved my point to him....big giggles.....
Head over to Practical Scrappers to see some of my sister's take on Ann's sketch....they are wonderful!!!

  10. Hi Kim! I hope you stay at home inside & avoid the bad weather! More time to create :) I was worried when I saw the title "toothless"! I thought you had to have some dental work done! So glad it wasn't you! Your nephew is sweet as is your LO! You always amaze me!
