Stuck?! Sketches! DT April - Smile, 3 little angels

Welome back to my blog today where I'm sharing a DT page for
I hope you will feel inspired to join in and be eligible for one of the lovely prizes. 
I used one of the newer Kaisercraft collections, 
as the soft watercolour tones looked lovely with my photo.
The Smile title and the teal coloured chevrons are from one of our sponsors this month,

The flairs are from Funky Flairs; I teamed them with some older brads.

I have scrapped a version of this photo before, but as the children all loved the day, 
they each want it in their individual albums, so you may be subjected to it again 
sometime in the future!  

The journalling is on the back of the page and it reads:-
You little cousins delight in one another’s company and also enjoy dressing up.  So it was fun to capture a few photos of you hamming it up, in your roles of two Shepherds and an Angel. 
Although your personalities are vastly different, you are drawn to each other, like birds to the trees, meeting in the common nest of childhood innocence and mischief.  You make each other laugh and try to outdo each other with silly antics; sharing and co-operating with imaginative games. 
(most of the time!)
We love your company and laugh for days after you’ve gone, 
reflecting on the funny things, you say and do.  
Love you more than words can say. 15 Dec 2014

Our sponsors this time are:-
They are donating - two large pieces of chipboard.

They are donating - a prize pack
