Our boys- Sketch challenge reveal for S.O.U.S

TGIF fellow scrappers..
Its another gloriously gloomy and rainy Friday here in Finland, but it always puts a happy heart warming smile on my face when I get to share a project with you lovely ladies..
this Friday we have another amazing Sketch to you by our very own Leah who has been a busy busy girl.. We wanted to offer some Clean and simple sketches for those of you that wanted to keep them simple..
I really did try to keep it simple and that's why I chose to scrap a photo of my boys that was taken back in 1996 when we first moved here to Finland..  They were only 2.5 yrs and 1.5yrs old then...Aaaaaw..LOL
so, here is my take on our sketch:
and yes! that is journaling you see..LOL  I normally don't journal on my layouts, but I think I'm going to do more and more journaling from now on..
and for the sketch:

and a few close ups:
mostly everything you see is pop dotted to give this layout some dimension..

my two little men playing on the slide.. 

and let me tell you how much I LOVE the Nate's ABC cart.. 
it has some really adorable die cuts on there for boys.. 

and for supplies used:

papers by: My Minds Eye and Basic Grey
Cardstock: light blue, white and brown

Cricut cartridges:
Nates ABC's: "Boys" die cut, font and numbers
George and Basic Shapes: Stars and star silhouettes

edge distressing tool
white gel pen
pop dots
edge rounder

well, that about does it for me for today..
I want to thank you all so much for stopping by today and taking a look at my SOUS project.. Do stop by SOUS and check out what the rest of the Design Team have created using the same sketch..

I hope everyone has a wonderfully creative weekend..
