Sketch #21-12

Hello everyone, and welcome to another Friday at S: CY with a beautiful Sketch from my close friend, our Senior Designer Ann Seleshanko.
Ann does such wonderful sketches that it is ALWAYS a favourite  activity for me to post her monthly S: CY layout sketch. I know you'll love this one. It has loads of space for embellies, room for 2 photos, horizontal interest (scallops? ribbon? patterned paper? CS?), plus space for a title or journaling to tie it all together! Enjoy!!

Journaling: Daniel, the fact that Noah has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has been hard on you, too. When he was 4, and you were almost 6, you asked us “When is Noah gonna grow up and be a kid?” 
Well, how could anyone describe ASD more perfectly, from a child’s point of view?
Noah DID have trouble with play skills. They were something we had to teach him. It’s a work in progress. But, as the years have passed, Noah has learned to play. He even seeks you out to play, at times, saying “Go find Daniel!”
This makes you happy, in your own “serious” way.
YOUR experience as a big brother is very different from that of others...  we recognize and salute that fact. We are so proud of you for being able to accept and adapt to the playtime that Noah enjoys and for being such a great big brother. Thank You for working hard at it, ‘cause Daddy and I know it has sometimes been tough.
We adore you and Noah. You are both very special to us, each in your own way.
Shine on. J
Love, Mom
