Short and Sweet and SRM

Hello! How are you? I have lots to share today :).  It's Thursday, which means I have a Sketchy Thursdays layout to share:

I got the itch to cut my hair and my sister/stylist obliged :).  We took out the blond highlights I added in late Spring and went dark.  I love the color, but I miss the length.  She took off five inches!

I used some bits and pieces from various manufacturers, including a polka dot Cupcake Poppy from my Etsy shop, Precocious Paper.  I just restocked this color, too :).

I chose to do the left side of the double-page sketch, flipped to suit my photos:

I'm definitely going to save this sketch for a future two-pager :).  If you'd like to play along this week, you can find all the details here, along with fantastic samples by the design team.

My dance studio's annual showcase was a couple of weeks ago. In years past I've taught 20-30 classes every week, and making something special for each student wasn't an option.  However, since I only had three classes this year, I took the opportunity to spoil them with treats :).  SRM stickers, tubes and wands were my inspiration and here is what I created:

You can see detailed shots on the SRM blog today, as well as more pictures in my flickr photostream.

Thank you again for all your kind thoughts and prayers for Jaxon.  After we did all we could do, he just wouldn't cooperate at the dentist's yesterday.  We are going to try another pediatric dentist who works more often with really young, stubborn kiddos like Jaxon before we go the oral surgeon route.  He isn't in any pain, so other than a weird smile, he's doing okay.  Your well wishes have been heartwarming and comforting.  Have a fabulous day!
