Creative Genealogy Scrapbooking #44...Hold me Close

Hello everyone.
It has been a very crazy week for me....a lot of things going on at the house, in the house and out of the house.  It's just been one of those weeks for me.  Good thing tomorrow is Friday already.

So it's time for another sketch at Creative Genealogy Scrapbooking

I really love these photos of the Patrick and the baby in the pool.  I used Bo Bunny Sun Kissed Noteworthy journal tag, cardstock stickers and stickers. I used distressed crackle paint for the background.  Once it dried I used broken china distress ink and stamped swirls.  It's very faint...but the results were very satisfying.  The corners are old school...they are by MM and I have had them for ages...maybe 7 years!! LOL.

So look through your pictures and join us this week.  I'm looking forward to visiting your blog and seeing what you've created.

I am entering this Lo in the following challenges:
The Shabby Tea Room: Week #25: Old Meets New (Old: Corners, New: Bo Bunny Journal Tag)
