Sketch N Scrap Blog Hop

We decided to try something new this month and our team is sharing artwork today featuring a bonus sketch!

If you have come here from Kelly's blog, then you are on the right path.


Christopher loves to play with legos. He doesn't have the building of things down to a science yet, but has a ton of fun anyway. It seems as though his most favorite pieces of legos are the mini figures--a kid after my own heart!


Now hop on over to Tamika's Blog

I have an RAK for someone who can correctly identify one of the believed origins of the phrase "Wearing your heart on your sleeve." One correct answer in the comments will be chosen as the winner on February 15. Good Luck!

Good Morning,such a fun page,my daughters loved lego's too I think I like the really big ones from when they were toddlers better then those tiny ones that always got suck in the vacuum lol ...the only origin that comes to mind is in the middle ages jousting matches. Knights were said to have worn the colours of the lady they were supporting, in cloth or ribbons tied to their arms.not sure if that's right, I did ask my fiance....you couldn't of just asked the meaning LOL that one I know! Have a wonderful day!

Great layout Crystal! My boys loved their Lego's too. There are a toy that never goes out of style.

My DS did a college paper on Shakespeare and there was mention of it in one of the plays he wrote. It is something that we all relate to as "Letting our feelings show". Funny how some sayings stick around forever it seems.

Have a great day!

Great layout! My kiddos love the Legos, too.

I think I've heard that at dances, available guys would wear a heart pinned to their sleeves to show that they were available.??

Crystal, I love your Lego page - so bright and cheerful! But then, I always love your pages!

You're killing me on the instructions...I could always cheat and google "wearing your heart on your sleeve" but I hate to do that and cheat. Still, I have no idea what one of the original meanings of that phrase is! Haha!

With that, I'm hopping along to the next page!

Thanks!
Nancie

One origin was from the old jousting tournaments when knights would wear the colors they won of their lady on their arm.

Your page is so cute, my boys are totally addicted to legos too.

LOVE your lo!!!! Great work!!!
As far as the quote goes....
In the Middle Ages knights who fought at tournaments wore a token of their lady on their sleeves. Today if you make your feelings obvious to everybody you wear your heart on your sleeve.
