Glasses - August sketch challenge from Canadian Scrapbooker

I'm so excited that the fall issue of Canadian Scrapbook Magazine is out!! I am really enjoying summer, but I just can't help getting excited about fall: crisp days, pumpkins, fall leaves, thanksgiving... Ok, enough already! It was super hot here today, and we haven't had a very long summer here in Calgary, so I'm going to live in the moment :)

For the August sketch at Canadian Scrapbooker I chose a summer pic of my two little girls sporting their glasses.  My 18 month old at the time called them her "Gas-e" and had to have a pair, just like big sis.

I used the Tim Holtz viewmaster die cut (which I LOVE!) and a Recollection paper pack from Michaels, which, incidentally, is the same paper as the Simple Stories Fabulous collection. I used some Distress Ink around my paper edges and the new Tim Holtz Distress Paint daubers in pink, blue and bronze.

As always, lovin' the sketch put out by Sue Sykes for CS and all the wonderful inspiration on their website! PS: If you want to play along you can also upload your sketch to Sue's blog for a chance to win!
