October 1st Once Upon a Sketch is gone LIVE!

Title: Our Little Man said..."I'll Never be too old to hold your hand"
Pavadinimas: Mūsų Mažasis Vyrukas pasakė..."Aš niekad nebūsiu per didelis laikyti tavo ranką"
This layout was created for the October 1st sketch at Once Upon a Sketch, and my hope is that in some small way, it might inspire you to play along with us ;)
The journaling criteria is to journal about two noteworthy events of the past week. The two recent events for our family is that our eldest son Omar started kindergarten, and we also started our daily walk to school. On this particular day, September 22 (Yep, I know there's a date typo on the layout....this tends to happen when I stay up late scrapping till the wee hours:), Omar and I had such a heartwarming conversation. I was telling him how soon he'll grow up and be too big and too cool to hold mom's hand, and he said just so matter-of-factly: I'll never be too old to hold your hand.
I tell 'ya, moments like these make being a mom worth all the heartache and struggles of raising children.

Šis skrebukas yra sukurtas Spalio 1-mos Once Upon a Sketch eskizų iššukių saitui.
Užduotis yra interpretuoti eskizą ir būtinai aprašyti apie pastarosios savaitės du svarbius įvykius. Mano skrebuko tema yra apie tai kad mūsų sūnelis pradėjo naują pradinę 'elementary' mokyklą, ir tuom pat prasidėjo mūsų kasdieniniai pasivaikščiojimai į mokyklą. Jis visad laiko mano ranką, ir šią dieną - Rugsėjo 22 (nors aprašyme prikliurkinau datą...ženklas kad skrebinu naktinėdama per vėlai :), sūneliui pasakiau kad neužilgo jis taps didelis bachūras ir nebenorės laikyti mano ranką. Omar pagalvojo ir rimtai atsakė: "Aš niekad nebūsiu per didelis laikyti tavo ranką." Tokie momentai taip šildo širdį kad atima bent kokias buvusias vaikų išdaigas.
Kviečiu ir Jus sudalyvauti OUAS konkurse (reikalavimai bei prizai paskelbti apačioj šio įrašo).

Awesome work. LOVE LOVE your journalling. Everything you create is just SO special. I love it. Thanks for your hard work at OUAS!

kokie zodziai... kiekvienos mamos svajone...
Irma, tau tinka daryti tokius greitus skrebukus... tada jie atrodo kazkokie kitokie... nezinau kas, bet sitam kazkas kitaip ;)
labai patiko, kaip desinej pusej inkorporuotas toks, regis, klasikinis rastas, ir tarsi prie vaiko tematikos neturetu tikti... o cia super atrodo, tu - genijus... nu, as niekad nesugalvociau panaudoti, cia stampukas, ane?
zodziu, kaip visada 100 balu ;)

Labai švelni ir jautri tema. Labai patiko schemos interpretacija. Tavo visi darbai pagal schemas man labai patinka tuo, kad juose lieka tik užuomina į schemą, o patys skrebukai gaunasi labai saviti.

Tiesiog sutirpau ... Tokiais atvejais nerandu žodžių jausmui apsakyti, kuris užplūsta tokiomis akimirkomis. Tobula ... žaviuosi tavo sūneliais ir šeima :)

Perskaičiau ir susigraudinau, toks mažo žmogučio pareiškimas, labai svarbus mamos širdžiai. Matosi, kad tarp jūsų ypatingas ryšys.
O dėl skrebuko, bis grįžau ir grįžau tyrinėti, kaip gi tu interpretavai schemą, kokias detalės panaudojai. Nes kai pamatau schemoje gėles, man toks jausmas, kad jų ir reikalauja. dėl to dažnai ir rankos nusvyra. Bet gi visada jas galima pakeisti kitomis mielomis smulkmenomis ;)

Irma said...

Thank you all!

Aciu visom ;)

Meadow kas liecia del schemu...pastaruoju metu butent apie tai OUAS bose ir pergyveno ir musu dizaineriu klause ar kitiem susidaro tokia nuomone kad del geliu tikimasi moterisku, geletu skrebuku?
O atsakymas tai kad geles gali apmainyti i bent kokias kitas detales ar tai zvaigzdes ar sagas, ir pan.
Aplamai as kelis kartus tiek nukrypau nuo eskizo kad pati nepridaviau....sunku man skrebinti remuose :( Bet zinok kad OUAS didziausias ir nepalauziamas reikalavimas tai 'journaling'- aprasymo kriterijus. Beveik kieviena konkursa atsiranda tarptautini dalyviu kurie butu pateke i Top 5 ar net laimeje, bet teko diskvalifikuoti kadangi nebuvo jokio aprasymo.

Great take on the sketch--I like how you rotated it 90 degrees!

That conversation with your son is so cute! Something similar happened with my son over the weekend. We were touring a historic site, and the tour guide encouraged the kids to come to the front of the group in order to see better. My son said, "Mom, I want to stay in the back with you. Because when I go to school tomorrow, I'll be away from you. So, I want to be next to you right now." Oh, melt my heart!!!!
