I’m determined to enter at least one (preferably more) scrapbook challenges each week. Today I have a layout to show you that I did using a sketch from Get Picky.
Here’s the sketch and my take on it.
I’m still working my way through my basket o’ memories (see this picture) and these pictures seemed perfect for this sketch. I replaced the 3rd photo in the sketch with a journaling block.
I don’t normally embellish my journaling blocks but this one was crying out for a couple touches so … voila!
And finding a piece of ribbon with the words “ma ma” on it was serendipitous to say the least!
Close up of the title. I added the subtitle because I really wanted to high light that milestone in Paige’s history.
This was a fun embellishment to make. I’d punched out 3 circles from a piece of transparent paper I found in my scrap drawer intending to use them as the sketch showed but felt this corner of the layout needed something … more … if you know what I mean. So I took a Jillibean Soup journaling spot and added the circles to it. Then it needed something in the centre so I started playing with another piece of the same ribbon from the journaling block and made this little rose bud type thing. Then I knew I needed to add one of my Twelve embellishments for Family Stories and found this orange flower in my tin. It all started coming together! Once the rose bud was glued on it looked a little lonely so I cut out some leaves and added them.
There you have it. Thanks for stopping by!
