I really switched things up on this sketch, but that's why I LOVE working with sketches! I decided to make my layout into a single page layout, but I immediately thought of banners, so I turned the left side of the sketch upside down. I didn't have enough photos in the "photo spot" of the sketch so I added two photos, and framed them with a chipboard frame. I simple ADORE the stamp set in the GOOD LIFE collection by Fancy Pants! I stamped on my layout and then punched out stamped circles and placed them in the centre of the stamped scalloped circles. I added some Fancy Pants Heart buttons for added interest:
When I added the title I distressed it, and LOVED the look!
FAB SCRAPS bird post! I thought that would make a great easel, and a perfect embellishment for the layout! I painted it, and cut the top off to look more like an easel; added a subtitle and a cute little sticker banner:
Hope you have a chance to play along this month with us!
