He's got the island Spirit


I really love these photos of Benji at 2 in Fiji. I can't believe how much he has changed in barely a year. Look at those cute baby cheeks and his adorable curls :) I remember taking these photos after he got a new Fiji-style shirt. He really thought he was the bees knees!
The challenge at 'Sketches with a Twist' this month is to use this sketch with dry or wet embossing:

I loved the sketch and managed to stick fairly close to it. My embossing is hard to see from the photo but I used clear embossing powder on the Woodgrain Thickers to make them really shine and I also used a little of the same clear UTEE to highlight my inked "Frame". My papers are Amy Tangerine and those cute buttons and bakers twine are form Purple Pumpkin.
The word 'Spirit' is one of the challenge words at 'Bird is the Word' this month so I have entered this one into that as well.
Have a great weekend!
