Always Remember (SCT Sketch Challenge with Becky Fleck)

Happy 6th Birthday Scrapbook and Cards Today!!!

To celebrate this special occasion, there has been lots of fun at the SCT blog this past week full of amazing ideas, endless inspiration and awesome giveaways.  On day 3 of the festivities, Becky Fleck, the Queen of Sketches, challenged us to a sketch challenge.  We could use any sketch from from Pagemaps 1 or 2, or even from the brand new SCT Spring issue that you can view HERE.  I could not for the life of me choose my favorite (i love them ALL!) so i picked Becky's favorite:
This photo is definitely a fave from 2011.  It was taken when my nieces came to visit Yves and i for the very first time in our new home.  We had taken them for an autumn stroll on the ocean boardwalk in our city and they were so excited.  You can barely see them on the picture as they were running ahead of us, their hair blowing in the wind, carefree and happy... as i'm so hoping they'll stay as they grow up.  And boy, do they grow up fast!

I love this quote from Winnie the Pooh and it fits the sentiment of my photo and layout perfectly.
The main products i used are from Bo Bunny (Country Garden collection paper, trinket and chipboard stickers) to Basic Grey (yellow paper), Dusty Attic (butterfly chippies and title), Bazzill Basics (cardstock and flowers), Prima (leaves that i covered with Stickles and alphabet stickers) and ZVA Creative (bling).

Thank you Becky for the wonderful sketchy inspiration!

... and long live Scrapbook and Cards Today!  :)
