Amazing What a Little More Time Can Do!

Last week, I just kind of threw my lo together for ST in a pretty big hurry, because of being out of town and coming home tired and having a lot to do!  I still liked the lo, but I knew it wasn't one of my best (they can't all be your favorite)!  But I think I have redeemed myself this week!  :)  I found this photo of me and my son on my mother-in-laws camera.  We went to the mall to get some new shoes for all of them and HAD to ride the carousel while we were there.  I also thought, "hey, I look pretty good in this picture!  I don't even need to do any editing out of wrinkles or dark cirlces under my eyes"!!  I will admit that even though this lo is for my son's book, it is bordering along the lines of girly...but I wanted to re-create the look and feel of the carousel and I thought the Emma's Shoppe papers from Crate Paper were a perfect match.  I altered the sketch from two photos to one, but other than that, I pretty much stuck to the feel of the sketch.
