don't laugh...


Hello and happy Thursday! This page is for the 4.22 Sketchy Thursdays challenge. Head on over there and see the awesome prize that Crop Chocolate has for this week's winner, it's a great one! And of course, you want to see the sketch and what the rest of the DT made! Obviously! :)


I was so excited to make this page! My son invented a game that he started playing during dinner. He would stare at us, make this adorable and yet mean-looking face and say in a sing-song voice, "don't laugh," daring us to be the first to laugh and lose. We couldn't help it, the first few times he did it, we would just burst out laughing.

Then we got serious about it. We got competitive! It is now, months later, a regular dinner game we look forward to.


I made this page with mostly my Studio Calico April kit. Lots of Sassafras Lass and Studio Calico papers and embellishments here on this page. Makes it fun!

Hope to see you over at the Sketchy Thursdays challenge this week!

Sadly, I think he's outgrown it, but this was a favorite game of my oldest son's, too. We would play whenever he got grumpy, and it was the perfect cure! I LOVE this page!
