Sketch N Scrap Layout Challenge #143

Christmas is so close I hope everyone is ready! I have a sketch today that I designed for Sketch-N-Scrap. I hope it give you holiday inspiration.
We had a almost travesty in our house. Brileigh's kitten she got last year for her birthday got outside on accident. We live in the country with a lot of wild animals that prey on small animals like coyote and hawks. After 2 and 1/2 days Brileigh's kitten was found crying outside. We were so lucky to have a happy ending and Brileigh was so very happy to have her baby back.

Sketch N Scrap Layout Challenge #141

Today I have a sketch I designed for Sketch-N-Scrap.

To work with my photos, I turned the sketch on it's side and tweaked the title placement. 
They had some interesting homecoming dress up days this year and one was Family Portrait Day.  Having 3 kids in the same class made this a little easier to achieve. Brett and Brileigh got to play the parents while Rylan got to forgo the gray hair and play their son.
