Sketches in Thyme!

Good Afternoon!

I took a few hours this afternoon and played in my craft room!   I worked on two different Sketches in Thyme sketches.  The first one I did was sketch #98.

The sketch...

My take on their sketch...

This year for Christmas I worked on our family tree for my Mom.  I spent two months working 8 hours a day researching everything I could find, plus talking to relatives and getting their stories and putting all the pictures I could find together.  It ended up taking 4 books to hold all the info I had.  I came up 1500 names and almost 1000 pictures, although I only printed about 100 photo's.  My Mom was thrilled with her gift, so that was all that matter to me.  The layout today is of me giving her the books and showing her what was inside each book and how I laid them out.

The second sketch I did was # 99.

My take on their sketch...

The middle picture is of my Grandson "telling" his Mom what he thought of her touching his new toy!  I was so glad I had the camera ready and was able to get the shot of him biting her hand.  Except for his Mom, we all laughed so hard over that.  Good thing he's (in this picture) not quite 1 yet, or he would have gotten into a lot of trouble for that.  :)

Have a great day!
