School Picture Day

The end of August was school picture day for Gibson and Addisyn.    They were all dressed up and Mom even got some pictures of them before they got on the school bus.   Now waiting to see how the pictures turn out.

I used the September Blend-a-Sketch challenge at   "SCRAP OUR STASH" for this challenge.
Besides combing the two sketches the twist was also to use buttons or Flair and I used 4 different buttons.   I used a shaped patterned paper from the sketch on the right and then added two different background papers from the sketch on the left and also used a doily for the circle image on the left hand sketch.   Again from the right hand sketch I placed my buttons where there were in embellishments in that right sketch.

Here is the link to the challenge and all the information at  "SCRAP OUR STASH"

I am also entering this layout at  "USE YOUR STUFF"  in challenge #330 Friendship.
Gibson and Addisyn might be brother and sister but the friendship between them is amazing.   Addisyn is on the autism spectrum and Gibson is always there with her making sure she does things right and that no one ever makes fun of her because of how she might act.   They are the best of friends and love doing things together.    They make me so proud.

The  challenge is simple at  "USE YOUR STUFF"  is simple................
