Not My Best Day

I had a lot of fun working on this layout and Sketchy Thursdays 10.13 sketch challenge.

The year was 1992 and the subject in my layout, my son.  We were on our annual family vacation at Avalon NJ.  It was one of those vacations that the whole family took together.  We're talking grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.  All in all usually a great time, especially for the kids!  This particular year, my son came down with the chicken pox while on vacation.  He was beyond miserable as you can see in the picture.  Now mind you when one comes down with chicken pox, so does another and another and another.   

The current sketch at Sketchy Thursdays caught me eye this week, more for the journaling aspect of it.


Again it felt good to use up some papers and embellishments I came across when cleaning out my scrapbook stash.
Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies used:  Bo Bunny Ad Lib and Garden Girl, Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride and Wanted chipboard, Sam & Lucy Weave Extras Teeny Tiny Alphabet Stickers, Sassafras Nerdy Bird  cloud sticker
