The Paper Variety Sketch with October Afternoon papers

http://thepapervariety.blogspot.com/2012/05/specialsketch-challenge.html

Erik Jr and I have been seeing a psychiatrist to work through his extreme moodiness.  I have come to accept that he probably has ADD, along with a not age appropriate ability to handle frustration.  To help ease the ADD symptoms, thus easing the general frustration level, we have begun to drink coffee together in the morning.  I must confess I enjoy having someone to drink coffee with, it's a very nice time for us to calmly plan our day and enjoy conversation.   

Please excuse super terrible cell phone picture... and cross your fingers that I am able to recover my good camera at the martial arts school where I left it last night.  My kid isn't the only one with ADD :)

I love sketches and this one is no exception, I followed it almost exactly.  I'm very happy with the results, I'll use this sketch again.

Papers are mostly October Afternoon from the 5 & Dime collection with a couple from Boarding Pass and maybe even a little sidewalk.  I've got it all in one envelope and I'm starting to forget what belongs with what.    Stickers and elements are also OA from the same lines.  Only exceptions being the DYNO journal strips, the strip of red polka dot washi and the twine from sew easy.
