Kaisercraft Sat Sketch #4 April

I wasn't planning on giving this Sketch a go.  I have just been so busy but the rainy weather trapped me indoors.  This is again a photo of my little man.  Those of you who know his story know what he goes through.  I took this photo of him walking into the ECDP ( a special school for kids with disabilities that is in preparation for the big school.)  He was three here and I insisted on him carrying his own bag like a big boy.  He goes to class two days a week without me which was strange at first but now I love it.  And they do such a great job there.  It has been almost three months since any seizure activity and it is amazing how he is coming on.  He can talk so much more.  Not sentences but lots of words.  I am so PROUD of him.  When bad seizures are a problem he just gets up and keeps going.

Again I have used a combination of different papers from so many collections.  I started to take note of them but I am sure I have missed a few.  So far I have paper from :- Lilac Avenue, Little Toot Stickers, Miss Nelly, Bugs and Party Animals.  I also used the latest Kaiser stamps.  LOVE those stamps!!  Oh and I had lot's of fun blowing the paint around on the paper.  Who's a big kid?

Kaisercraft April #3 Sat Sketch

This is my take on Kaisercrafts April #3 Sat Sketch.  I found there to be a lot of detail in the original sketch and that bogged me down a bit until I culled a bit of the papers down.  But I love what has evolved from it all.  I also used papers that have been in my stash for a long time waiting for the right photo. (I must learn to tweak photo's on the computer before printing them though.  I find this photo could do with a bit of lighting up.)  The papers are from the Blushed collection.  The pink organza flower in the bottom right is my first attempt at organza home made flowers.  Still got a lot to learn in that area. :)  That is what craft is all about though!!

Kaisercraft Sat Sketch April #2

This is my take on the Kaisercraft Sat Sketch April #2.  One thing I really love about Kaisercraft is that even if the papers come from different collections often they will match.  I have used papers from at least 3 different collections.  My son can pull very funny faces some times for no reason.  This was one of them.......

My Mind's Eye April contest

This is the first time I have done a page for a MME competition but it has been very exciting.  I was forced to step outside the square (hexagon) I usually work in and try something different which I loved!!  Hope you like it!

Kaisercraft April #1 Competition

This is my version of the Kaisercraft April #1 Sat Sketch.  I wanted to keep it simple.
