VROOM... A Sketchy Thursday's 9-8 Sketch Challenge

Hello my scrappy friends! It has been a long time since I have done a scrap book page. I so missed getting in there but was just in a non creative mood. I'm so glad to find the time and the mood to be creative! 
I really enjoyed working with this sketch from Sketchy Thursdays 9-8 sketch challenge! 

9.8 sketch challenge

I had pulled out some old photos of my kids from 1992, you know the ones where the photos are not all that great and the main focus is tiny. Well I thought I could crop them down to fit the page. I'm really happy with the results!

 I wish the photos of my kids were better but you can only work with what you have and that is what I did!

 I especially love the old fashion car I used from Cricut's "A Child's Year" cartridge! This is a cartridge I haven't used much but really look forward to using it. The paper I used was from My  Minds Eye -  Complete Boy, and scraps. I used my trusty stapler and sandpaper to give it that older look. For me that was the difference in the page!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Kim!

First off, thank you so much for your well wishes! I am finally starting to feel close to 100 percent and I so appreciate the kind words friend!

What a great layout, you did a wonderful job with this one. Did you look at these pictures and get that feeling like it was just yesterday when your kids were so small? I am planning on doing more layouts but I am worried I may spend more time crying than!

Have a wonderful day friend!
