Birthday Waffles

This week's sketch over at Shimelle's was all about stacking layers, and maybe a bit of texture thrown in.  It completed this one quite quickly but just haven't had the time to upload it here! LOL  Here is the sketch.

As it was two smaller photos, I chose to use two from The Thinkers birthday that were taken on my iPhone.  They aren't great quality but that morning the camera battery was dead!  Here is my version of the sketch. (will have to see if I can get a better photo later)

Basic Grey 'Cupcake'
In our house you get to choose your meals on your birthday.  Breakfast is always interesting and is usually pancakes, waffles or a full cooked breakfast.  On his last birthday The Thinker wanted waffles, but only if he could help make them.  Everyone looks forward to birthday breakfasts as they are always yummy!

I had an idea for a mini album using old jeans many, many years ago and I kept this pair of The Thinkers jeans after he put a hole in them that wasn't repairable.  The jeans are still in my stash and I haven't had a chance to make the mini album yet.  As they were his favourite jeans when he was five, I thought it was a great time to use them (for this 12th birthday!!!) now as I doubt I will get around to the mini album.  So I layered squares, splattered mists, used more very old papers from my stash and the waffle layout was complete.  I hope you enjoyed the sketch this week.

Chipper :-)
