I know. I said I was going to work on my 2014 album, and this is certainly not a 2014 photo - this small boy is now 17. I was rummaging through some papers when I came across a bag containing this photo and these papers. Three options: leave them where they are and risk losing the photo; put the photo back in the album and forget that I was going to use these papers; ignore 2014 and scrap the photo now. You know what I did!

A quick look through the list I keep of sketch challenges took me to the February Week 1 sketch from Lets's Get Sketchy, though it was more of a starting point than a close copy this time.

The photo is my son with the pirate sword, hat and hook that he received for his birthday that year, and the papers that I had pre-selected were from Nitwit Collections and included a pirate boy that I fussy-cut.

Cardstock - Bazzill?
Paper - Nitwit Collections Land Ho
Letters - American Crafts Thickers
Washi Tape - Trimcraft
Ink - Docrafts (Brown) + Unknown Blue


Lakeland Background Stamp
Woodware Scalloped Circle Punch
