Well, I was able to finish up three more layouts before I finally gave up! ha I was actually inspired by the sketch from Skissedilla and made two of my layouts today using this "layout sketch". The first one is of my youngest son. He loves to ride his bike and I got this photo of him looking so happy. I just had to scrap it.
I pulled out a bunch of different colors of washi tape and some Heidi Swapp Color Shine and went to work! I really just grabbed some tags and a paper scrap off my desk and it just all came together. I'm entering it at Skissedilla and I'm entering it at Scribble and Scrap also.
Here is a close up
The next one I made using the same "sketch" and a photo of my bff's two children. They are best of friends with my children. This photo was taken on one of their visits to us. My children had just gotten on the bus to go to school and they had just said goodbye to them.
I have to tell on myself. The first time I glued down the title I misspelled Friends! I left the "N" out. EEK! I luckily realized it and could peel the letters off and add the correct spelling without too much difficulty.
The next layout I made is actually for two different challenges. One is the sketch challenge #1 at Scrap and Play.
And I combined it with a color inspiration challenge at Color Me Scrappy.
It was actually a bit of a fluke. I printed out the color inspiration earlier in the day with the intention of doing the challenge and then after I made this layout following the sketch from the sketch challenge I realized that I had used all the colors in the inspiration piece! Totally not realizing it. Must have been an unconscious paper choice. So weird but cool. I am going to enter it in Rachelle's Mother Challenge at Sketches4all too.
Kids made it home okay last night from their band trip. We got to sleep in this morning a little bit before my two littlest kids came home from Meemaw's house. Now I have all my kiddo's back home. Life is good.
Thanks for stopping by today. Until next time...happy scrapping!
