Carseat Driver

Hello!  The last challenge of November is up at the studio.  Amanda created a great sketch and has challenged us with this twist: use a monochromatic colour scheme.  I love yellow, and I've made a couple of yellow monochromatic layouts before, but never for a boy.  So I challenged myself further to make one work for my little guy.

He loves to coo, giggle, and shout little things from his carseat while we are driving.  He loves cars (which he calls vroom vrooms), so taking a ride is like a parade of sorts.  He is starting to talk now, so I'm sure the jibber-jabbering will only increase - which I love!

Here's the sketch:

The design team did a great job, as usual.  You have to see Nic's all white layout - amazing!  Check out the challenge here.

Today I'm grateful for naps.  Yesterday morning I curled up on the couch with the baby and the boys and I watched a movie.  The baby and I woke up nearly three hours later.  It felt so good!  It was only then that I realized I needed to take some time to slow down and rest.  I'm grateful for those rare times that I get to physically recharge with some downtime.

Have a good day everyone, and maybe try to catch a nap!  Tessa
