I've been sick with a cold recently and have been laying low and doing quiet sorts of things the last few days.  The garden doesn't need as much attention, and my craft room was calling.  I decided to play along with a challenge and scrap this layout from 2012.

My son broke a tooth during wrestling practice and it took three visits to the dentist to get it to seal.  Unfortunately several years later the tooth also needed a root canal, which was not unexpected.  I went through my stash and found these fun patterned cardstock sheets by Li'l Davis Designs from 2001.  A few scraps of blue and some olive green cardstock complete sketch.  The top blue is distressed with a emery block as the cardstock was white core, the bottom blue is distressed with Wedding White Memento Luxe ink as it was a solid core cardstock.  The vertical ribbon didn't have the right amount of punch . . . so I punched white cardstock with a Martha Steward border punch.  The title is Moxie Classic by Quickutz, and a Zig writer in Navy is used to do the brief journaling. 

Sketch~N~Scrap is the inspiration for this layout.

Thanks for stopping by!  I need to spend more time just having fun in my craft space, and this was much needed.


  1. Ouch is a good title, poor guy! I love the paper choice, great job with the sketch! Thanks for joining us at Sketch N Scrap!

  2. Ouch indeed. That must have cost a pretty penny as well :-(
    You did a great job using those bold pattern papers. Breaking them up with the plain coloured cardstock worked really well. Love the funky font for the title letters. TFS.

  3. Love your use of circles to tie all of the elements in the layout together. So very pleased you played along with us at Sketch N Scrap! Your participation is much appreciated!

  4. Your title is perfect with your pictures! I like the color combo you chose and great job with the sketch, thanks for joining us at Sketch N Scrap!

  5. What a cute page about an big ouch event. Root canals are not so terrible but getting your tooth chipped at a wrestling mach sure sounds painful! I like the repetitive circles that you use throughout your page. Thank you for playing along with us at Sketch N Scrap.

  6. Wow - Li'l Davis Designs - I think I might still have some things from them in my stash! Your layout looks great and the title is perfect! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Sketch N Scrap!

  7. Sweet layout and the colors are perfect for a boy's layout! Thanks for playing along with us at Sketch N Scrap!
