Creative Genealogy Scrapbooking #42....True Fisherman


Guess what today is? 

It's time for another amazing sketch week at Creative Genealogy Scrapbooking!!
And I had so much fun putting this page together!!  I'll be honest at first, I was lost and the page just wasn't coming together....AT ALL!!  It was one of those moments where I had to just step away from the project and come back a few hours to a day later.  And this is my finished layout.

My son loves to fish.....LOVES TO FISH and will fish anywhere he can!! To him, weather and location are no deteriorating factor for casting a line.  I hope that he continues to maintain the passion and we will continue to find those fishing spots for him to enjoy and cast that line.

I will also be entering this layout in the following challenges:
-Fantabulous Cricut: Challenge Me Monday #23
-Quixotic Challenge #37
-Critter Sketch Blog Challenge #27

Thanks for stopping by....and I hope to see you again soon.
