The Paper Bakery Sketch

Last Wednesday I shared a few on-line spots I was planning to visit on National Scrapbooking Day this past Saturday. The Paper Bakery is one of those places. They had a fun little blog hop, some free cut files and a sketch available.
After the blog hop, I printed up the sketch to give it a try. It is the one layout I was actually able to complete on NSD. :)
I am working on an album for a trip we took to Florida in 2007 right before my daughter was born. I was six months pregnant at the time. These were a few of the photos I came across in the huge stack I had printed. I remember Mike snapping a few photos which is why I am kind of half smiling in the one on the right.
I didn't want this page to go in the trip album. But I thought it would be kind of an interesting take on one aspect of the trip. Truthfully, he was very well behaved despite sleeping in strange hotel, lots of time at the amusement parks and just being totally off schedule. And if you know Evan, you know how much he loves his routines!
Just FYI, I asked Evan's permission before posting this one ;) He thought it was kind of funny. And that is what I love about scrapbooking. That there are memories that may have not been so funny at the time, but we can look back and kind of laugh at now. :)

So if you want to use the sketch, I am sure they would love to have you link it up over at the Paper Bakery blog. They have a place to add links on the right side of their blog. And a chance for one of the lucky participants to win a prize just for joining in.

Let me know if you link up in the comments and I will come visit your blog!
