Birthday Hugs

Don't you just love being able to combine challenges? - especially whan time is short and there are so many awesome challenges to participate in. I made this page using the current 'Sketchabilities' sketch:

Is that not the coolest sketch? The colours that I used are from the current colour challenge at 'Scrapfriends' - such gorgeous happy colours! 
I stuck quite closely to the sketch as I really loved everything about it. I especially love the 'pegs and line' element and as I don't have any mini-pegs in my stash I substituted paper clips instead for a similar look. My photos were taken on the morning of Jaime's 21st. he still gets excited about opening his presents and all the family gathered together at 7.30am for the present opening ceremony and 'special card' reading (we list all the birthday persons achievements and notable moments over the last year). I loved these three photos of Jaime giving and getting birthday hugs from his brothers and sisters. 
Here are a couple of close-ups:

Thanks for visiting my blog and hope you are having a great weekend - a long weekend for us New Zealanders, and the weather is gorgeous!
