12.3 sketchy thursdays challenge

Sketchy Thursdays is back! We put the challenge on hold last week for the Thanksgiving holiday (and gave you a Second Chance Challenge to hold you over—did you win the iCopics?), but we are back this week.

This is the page I made for the 12.3 sketch. Many people don't know much about my darling husband. He's a private person, doesn't have a Facebook page, is 100% devoted to his job and all that comes with it... but he used to be a rock star! He loves Metallica and Van Halen, he owned and played a Les Paul guitar, he even used to be the marketing director for a radio station.


So, I thought it was incredibly cute when one evening he decided to show Nate how to make the rock devil horns. It was so funny, and of course I took pictures.

Nate thought it was so cool. Soon after, he began treating our remote control and any other toy within reach like a guitar and strumming his pretend strings to anything from commercials to the intro music for The Office.

We may have a future rock star in our house! Who knows, maybe hubby will take it up again?! He played wonderfully before he traded Les for Glock.


Supplies: My Mind's Eye (pp), Sassafras Lass (pp and some flowers), Buttons/Cardboard flowers (design by diana etsy shop), American Crafts (chipboard letters and Flair), Making Memories (letter stickers), Stampin Up (paper clips), Cosmo Cricket (rub ons)
