Of course, we still need to share our sketch with you, check it out:
I chose to flip the sketch to suit my photo.
I've used Kaisercraft Papers, "Indigo Skies" collection, one of my faves at the moment.
The flair is from Studio Fourteen 40.
The stamp is from Carabelle Studio, "Nuage d'toiles."
The metal clock is by Prima.
The little enamel dots are oldies from Prima, "Allstar collection."
The journalling is on the back of the page and it reads:-
It's not often we have a photo of all our Sons together, so this one is very special to me. It seems such a short time since you were all at home milling about in a state of noisy chaos. The days were full of sweaty clothes, mountains of washing, school bags, sporting gear, trolley loads of food, dirty dishes and vociferous debating about every topic under the sun. There was wrestling in the lounge room, corny jokes and loud music. Often advanced grunting and shoulder shrugging was the response to impertinent questions from parents and you always doled out information sparingly, on a "needs to know" basis. Only in later years, at family gatherings, have we learned of some of the high jinks that went undetected by us at the time. Ignorance is bliss, or so they say! And look at you now; all married with families, careers and responsibilities of your own, yet the boyish glint of mischief in your eyes shines as brightly as ever when you get together.
Love you all to the moon and back.
