Sleepy Layout

I made this layout using the 9.8 Sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. I also used some of my fav pics.. :) the one in the middle is my fav on this page.. Its of our first week out of the hospital with Jayden. Adam was so exhausted (so was I but well if you've ever been a new parent you know lol). He was doing all (or at least most of) the feedings (every 2hrs) and diaper changes. I was in a lot of pain (or at least on a lot of pain meds from my c-section) and I didn't know it yet but I was developing post-partum preeclampsia so I was also extremely sick.. so Adam was just being super dad! :D

Here is the sketch I used.. I flipped it a little bit. And you wouldn't believe it.. but.. no Cricut what-so-ever!

In the middle pic Adam is sleeping with Jayden in his arms.. they are on the floor next to the bed because Adam didn't want to disturb me cause I was so sick.. Well I believe he was just feeding here and they both ended up passing out there cause thats where I found them lol :).

For the title I used a Glaze green pen and separated the title from the journaling with little z's lol. The paper has the lyrics to "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and thought it was super fitting for all the sleepy pics. I don't know who makes the paper or anything like that I've had it for a really long time.. since before we found out we were expecting Jayden (when we were trying to have a family) and I bought it at a Michales in FL while on vacation so yea Im not real sure about that. But the lyrics on some of the words glitter and its just cute. I hand cut the semi - circle and used some blue ink on the edges to make it stand out more. The blue journaling & captioning under the pics is with a blue Zig marker. I cut the slices of Twinkle Twinkle paper at different sizes varying from 1-2 inch strips.

I am entering this layout into the following challenges:
Sketchy Thursdays - 9.8 Sketch
Really Reasonable Ribbon - 31
The Paper Variety - Celebration Day 3 (favorite pics)
