New Sketchabilities Sketch

What a day I have had today. I looked after my DGD for the day. She is two years old, and as  woman in the supermarket said to me today "small girl, big attitude". She is just so sweet because she listens to everything and soaks it up like a sponge ~ then she repeats it when you least expect it!

Karan has a really cool new sketch over at Sketchabilities. Here is what it looks like.

I have a ton of photos that I still need to scrap from when our grandchildren were much younger. I loved this sketch and decided to use one of those pics. Here is my LO:

Some close ups

Claudia was exactly two months old. I feel real good about getting old pics scrapped. It's just that the new ones are so exciting sometimes, that I rather do them.
