Friday Sketch Reveal for SOUS

For a lot of reasons, I get to shout out "TGIF!!"
 First of all, I have a great layout and sketch to share with you today.. Our very own Leah from SOUS has created a CAS (clean and simple) style sketch for everyone this week and I've had a blast with it.. I honestly tried keeping this layout of mine Clean And Simple..LOL  trust me when I say "that was challenging all on its own!"..LOL
and the second reason why I'm so thrilled today is,  I have a three day weekend to look forward to... Wooo Hooo! :)
So, here is my take on this Friday's Sketch:

If you're scratching your head about the title, etc... which of course, I'm hoping your not..LOL
but I got this idea from the apples.  The title "apple of my eye!" and then the "Fruits of our labor!" came to play.. so, I just incorporated the apples and the Labor, since my son was a big boy when he was born..LOL
I'm just goofy like that is all  :)
and here is the sketch Leah Created for us girls to work with this week:
here are a few close ups of the layout:

The tree branch I found on one of my summer buys, the BLOOM cartridge..

My son was exactly 4 wks old in this photo.. Looks exactly like his dad and he still does..LOL

and of the apples, which I had so much fun with..

and for supplies used:

Cricut Cartridges:
A Child's Year: Apples and Leaves
Bloom: Branch
Christmas: Window
Kate's ABC's : Title Font

Papers by; DCWV Tradewinds stack
Cardstock: Cream, black, green and burgundy red

chalks and inks
pop dots
white gel pen

Well my fellow crafters and creators, that about does it for me for today.. I had a lot of fun playing with this sketch and coming up with an original idea, as silly as it is...
I want to thank you all so much for stopping by today and taking a look at what I've been up to, do stop by SOUS and check out what the other DT members have been busy creating..
hope everyone has a wonderfully creative weekend
