While You Were Asleep - lo plus exciting news!

Okay, I'll start with the exciting news - I"m a sketchy maven!!! Well, at least at Sketches In Thyme!!!
I'm so happy and proud to be part of this group of very talented women!
Make sure to follow Sketches In Thyme and see the beautiful creations all the mavens have made to show you. We'll have ton of fun, layout sketches, cards sketches, tips ant tutorials. Trust me - you don't want to miss it!

And now for my lo, done for this week's sketch challenge at Sketches in Thyme:

This is the sketch:

And for the song inspiration at Scrapping the Music, which was "No Rain" by Blind Melon. I used the line "I'll always be there when you wake" for my journaling. It's expresses my memories of all those long sleepless nights, of all the nights that one of my boys wake up from a nightmare, and come over to mummy's hug.
The photo is of me and my eldest, when he was only 9 months. We went to the zoo with friends and he fell asleeep and laid his little head on my shoulder. Isn't he precious?
The titles says, in Hebrew: "while you were sleeping", and I used chipboard alphas to create it. Did you see the crackled look of them? I think it's awesome.

In order to match the colors of the photo, I used this yellow pp, with the puppies. I've had this pp for a very long time, and didn't like it and didn't find the right way to use it. But when I took the photo and looked for matching pp, it was Bingo!

I also used foam leaf and some glittered leaves stickers, a chipboard flower, and some smalll chipboards for the date. I have tones of chipboards and I'm trying to use some of them on every lo I make.

I love how this lo turned out. I love the warm feeling on this one.

I'm entering it also for the following challenges:
glitter/sparkle/shine - secret crafter; crafty purple frog; flourishes
color combo - our creative corner

Thanks for taking the time and visit me :) and make sure to come back tomorrow, I'll post my DT's lo for the new sketch challenge at Frosted Designs. Here is another sneak peak:

חדשות משמחות :)))) נבחרתי להיות חלק מצוות המעצבות בבלוג האתגרים של Sketches In Thyme!!! אני מאד אוהבת את הבלוג הזה והשתתפתי בהרבה מהאתגרים שלהם. עכשיו יש שינוי קצת במתכונת, ויהיו גם סקיצות לכרטיסים וסקיצות לדפים, עם הדרכות שבועיות וטיפים.
אני יותר מאשמח לראות אתכן משתתפות בשני הבלוגים הללו. :))))

הדף הזה נעשה לסקיצה השבועית שם (לפני שהצטרפתי לצוות). השתמשתי בו בנייר מדוגם ששכב אצלי זמן רב וממש לא מצאתי לו שום שימוש. פה, עם הצבעים של התמונה, הוא השתלב נהדר. הדף גם הוכן לאתגר של השראה משיר, ולקחתי את השורה של I'll always be there when you wake, כמחווה לכל הלילות מעוטי השינה שהיו, לאותם לילות עם חלומות רעים בהם הילדים באים לחפש נחמה בחיבוק של אמא. התמונה היא של הבן הבכור שלי, כשהיה בערך בן 9 חודשים, בביקור שעשינו בגן החיות בחיפה. הוא התעייף, הניח ראש על כתפי ונרדם. אני מאד אוהבת את התמונה הזאת. יש בה הרבה רוך ועדינות, והרקע המטושטש כל כך מתאים.
האותיות של הכותרת הן בעצם צ'יפבורדים של אותיות באנגלית, שצבעתי ויישנתי ועברתתי אותן.

תודה על תשומת הלב :), ושיהיה יום נפלא!
