Well, the sun did not shine completely, but it was at least bright out, so today I managed to snap some photos of the layout I created a few days ago!
I wanted to create a layout using this month’s sketch at Once Upon A Sketch… the journalling prompt/theme for the month is “Birthdays”. I actually hoped to get a few layouts created using the sketch and the theme, but I am thinking I am going to run right out of time!
I *loved* the sketch as soon as I saw it:
I decided to use a photo of Emma that I took last year for her third birthday – I usually take some portraits of the girls in their birthday outfits (you’ll see this year’s in a couple of months… stay patient!), so this is one of those.
I used all kinds of Crate Paper goodies, because I wanted to be able to enter this layout in this month’s colour challenge over on the CP Blog. The challenge is to use 3 different shades of pink; Lipstick Pink, Barbie Pink and Soft Baby Pink.
I used mainly the Pretty Party line for this one – various elements. I am in *love* with this collection (okay, you know by now that I am in love with ALL the Crate collections!).
The journalling on the right of the photo:
I really love how this layout turned out, so I really hope I manage to do one or two more with this sketch before the month is out!
Thanks for peeking in! I have a sick little girl who (so far) is having a very rough time sleeping tonight, after a pretty rough day of being attached to me *constantly*… I have a feeling it’s going to be a long one! Poor thing…
