Here is today's challenge.  It is a sketch challenge:

 And here is my layout
My cute little kiddos from way back when they got along!  Everything on the layout is from the September kit.

Your next stop on the blog hop is a visit to one of the new designers, Kelly. You can visit Kelly's blog here.

Hello, My name is Kelly, and I first off want to say that I am SO excited to be joining the extremely talented group of ladies here at Artful Delight! A little about me...I am 24 years old, and I grew up in northern Minnesota, which is where I live now, right by the beautiful Lake Superior. I am engaged to be married to a wonderful man, Jeremy, and we have one beautiful daughter, Lilah Jeanne (15 months old). I work part time at an assisted living facility. I began scrapbooking shortly after Lilah was born, and fell in love! I have very quickly learned so much, and continue to grow in this amazing hobby! I have dabbled in card making, but I find it very challenging, and focus most of my creative time on scrapbooking. I especially love participating in many the great sketch/challenge sites out there, and I share a blog with my older sister, Erin, who shares the same passion for this hobby. I also enjoy spending time outdoors with my family, taking pictures, cooking/baking, reading, and shopping. 
Have fun and don't forget to check back tomorrow for the next challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!
. . . Debbie
