A sketchy challenge

Having 3 boys sometimes can prove difficult as you end up with the same photo for each of the boys albums, thats scrapping one photo, three times, three different ways! Phew! This is where sketches come in handy when the mojo is waning at the 2nd layout! Thanks to Scrapfriends, they came to my rescue with this great sketch that I could use up the smaller photos I had printed.

And remind me next time to co-ordinate the boys outfits a little more, I mean for crying out load, the look like Josephs Technicolour Dream Coat!

So here is the sketch...

And here is my take…

123 Get Scrappy Challenge Board

Hi guys, I cannot believe that another month has come around already and I'm doing another challenge at 123 Get Scrappy. This time the recipe I chose was Stitching, Colour Orange, and 3 or more Patterned Papers. I love the colors aqua and orange together so I thought that would work great with the photo of James I had at swimming lessons. I'm big on white space at the moment but I wanted to add another dimension to the white to represent the water of the pool... then SPLASH! I found this awesome splash image on my silhouette that I cut in vellum to give that dimension that I was after. Worked really well!
