playtime at the park

I decided to play along with Shimelle's latest Sketch of the Week again this week after taking last week off. Lots of layers on this weeks sketch!! I adjusted the sketch slightly in that I used punched circles around the main focal image instead of paint splatters. I think some of my punches have been feeling a bit unloved lately, so I broke out a bunch of my circle punches in various sizes and just added to the layout until it felt finished. Love the way it turned out and would love to hear what you think.

When I was visiting my family up north a few weeks ago, we went to one of the local parks in the morning for the kids to burn some energy. Matt was ALL over the place, but because he's still not quite big enough to play unsupervised, he kept my sister quite busy!! Julia on the other hand only talked about that fireman's pole...hence why we went to this particular park. She didn't slide down the pole, she climbed up it! It was especially funny when three boys came over and only one of them could climb up it! Julia was sure to point that out, but she did encourage them to try!! She could only climb about half way up (she is only 4), but I give it until next year for her to be able to climb up the entire way!!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Such a playful layout. I love the circles. I could never climb the fireman's pole! LOL Good on her!

  2. love this layout...the layering and circles are smashing. Makes me want to get back to scrapping instead of just reading and wishing lol.
