My Baby Brother and the Last Sketchy Thursday

Sketchy Thursday is retiring.

This is the last sketch. So sorry to see them go but understand the reason.. I wish them all the  best in the future.

My brother turns 50 on Jan 26 2012.
This page is a picture of him at 1 year and a recent one. Obviously he had more curly hair in the baby picture. I have poker straight hair and both my brothers had curly hair. Go figure!

I used the January kit from Studio Calico. The colours  looks great with the photo. I even recycled...the mat under the photo is the reverse of a shipping tag.!

So here is my tribute to him and Sketchy Thursday.

Nice job MaryAnn! It is sad news about Sketchy Thursdays. Your brother had really nice curly hair. Straight is good too.

Love the button banner.
