A Dreary Friday - But I have Orange!

So the past week here in Washington has been pretty dreary, and I am sure that is to be expected..... I mean it is the RAINY state after all, right?! Maybe I am just making that up, but it sure seems like it! But even though the weather this week has been bad, my week has been great! Koen, my dear sweet little man turned 2 years old, we are celebrating his birthday tonight so I am sure you will see pictures very soon :-) And not to mention I have discovered a new found love for the color orange and it all started with a little challenge from Dreamgirls. I had to create a LO using these requirements:

Prompt: We want to see action photos
Twists: Use either Pink and orange or blue and orange on your layouts
Technique: Doodling
This is what I came up with:

This LO is based of of the sketch below (in my previous post) #24 from 52 Sketches...52 Weeks This is my beautiful niece Heather'Lea. When I opened my mailbox yesterday and I saw this kit from Jenni Bowlin I instantly knew I wanted to use this picture. The flourishes I made myself. If you want to learn how to make them you can go here and there is a wonderful tutorial taught by the Fab Aphra Bolyer.

Sorry about the darkness of these pics, like I's dark and dreary and this is the best I could get!! Boo!

As many of you may already know my husband is getting ready to deploy again and that is one of the main reasons I have started getting into scrapbooking so actively. He asked me to find something I loved, something I was passionate about and go for it. So I did. He asked me to try out for the DT at 52 Sketches...52 weeks so I did.It was my first and only time trying out for a DT. I am so lucky to have a husband who is so supportive of my passion and wants to make sure that I have something to keep me busy and "preoccupied" especially at a time like this. I am a very lucky girl who is soon to be a very lonely girl. I just wanted to say to all of those that are serving our country, and all of those that support those that serve.....THANK YOU!!!
