On a happy note...I did another sketch challenge from http://www.sketchythursdays.blogspot.com/ and I'm really happy with the result. Originally I looked at this sketch & went Blech! What do I do with this? Then I sat down and pulled up these pics of my nephew and it all came together. Loved this Basic Grey Marjolaine line for this layout, it really let the photos shine.
Here is the sketch:
and here is my take on it:
The scalloped journaling spot came from swap on my favorite MB, Club CK. Wish I could remember who made it! The journaling block looked so stark, so I added the pen line border. An old Making Memories date stamp was perfect!
Thanks for popping in, I look forward to comments & suggestions! If you have questions about a layout or a technique, just let me know :)
