BACK AGAIN!! I didn't think I would finish this sketch in time, but with a rainy day AND my son watching the repair man for our washer I was able to finish the layout! Yeah!! (and just in case you wanted to know my son's SOCK got caught in the drain pipe which caused a clog and the washer was unable to drain. so i learned: A) don't fill the washer too full and B) put little items in garment bags always)
I used some recent pictures (4-2) of my sister-in-law and son hanging out in the backyard. They were just being silly and smiling away for me. It probably helped I was being goofy and dancing with the dog while I took these pictures :)
I die cut the brown border and then layered some felt fusion over it. I also added some flowers, a mix of centers and one chipboard bird. Simple but I love it!
Some close ups:
