get picky sketch #3

Hi all on this very wet day!! (good for sitting and scrapping!!) this is my take on the get picky sketch and may i say it was a challenge.. but i enjoyed scratching my head and playing with this sketch.. for two reasons.. because it called for 4 photos, and because i did a male layout.. (which are always a challenge for me..) and in the end i am pretty happy with the end result.. and who can resist baby  faces!!!???

White with one...

picky inspiration #2

wow today was wet so i scrapped! i had to think about the challenge from Get Picky this time..but i am pleased with what i came up with.. this is the inspiration we are to base our layout on.....

i took my colors from the blue lounge..and i  took the last line.... i believe in miracles... and used photos of my daughter and i.. we waited 8 years for the process of intercountry adoption to bring us together... pretty much a miracle when i think of the times it looked like it just wasnt going to happen with the country's unrest and the red tape to push through.. but it happened.. and what a precious miracle we now have...
so never give up if you have a dream!xx
