School started back in August, and with that, the return of a fairly regular naptime for Jaxon. However, lately he has been determined to skip those naps, which leads to a grumpy boy and flustered mama. A trick I learned was to schedule errands a bit before naptime, so that as we drove home, he would be lulled to sleep in the car. I took the photo in this layout on a recent outing.

I'm kinda excited about this picture. It's my first iPhone photo on a layout! Yes, I finally got an iPhone and I am loving it :). The first apps I downloaded were Instagram, Hipstamatic, and Pocketbooth. So much fun! Back to the layout, it's based on the new sketch at Sketchy Thursdays:

I decided to try a different type of banner accent and went with hand-cut hearts on a hand-drawn string.

I thought the film background paper was a good choice for the iPhone photo, and I kept everything else pretty simple. I sort of had to - my craft table was (and still is) covered with dozens upon dozens of new flowers for the shop and I had to scrap on the floor. I wasn't about to pull all my supplies down there with me, so I went for a minimalist look. I love the result :).

I hope you'll join us! A $20.00 gift certificate to a great kit club is up for grabs. You can find the details here. And if you're in the market for some tutorials for sewing on paper, I've got a pair of really good ones linked up on the Scrapbook Circle blog today. You can take a look here.

Have a wonderful day! Tessa
