A new sketch was revealed this morning at Nuts About Sketches- a two-pager!! It was another fun sketch to work with. I used photos of my middle child at the park two summers ago.
This layout also works for a couple of challenges. The first is part of the "Mother May I" Crop at My Scraps and More. Challenge #1 (there are 18 of them!) was to used something on your layout that started with each of the letters of mother. I used:
M-masking tape (the decorative kind, I bought it in the office supply section of Target)
O- "Out and About" title
T- Thickers (the ampersand)
H- Heartbreaker font
E- eleven photos
R- Ranger ink
The bonus challenge was to use something on your layout that you would find on a birthday present, I used tape.
The other challenge comes from the "thinking*through*design" blog, which was to use an analogous color scheme. I didn't set out with that purpose in mind on this layout, but I worked from the large polka dot paper and so I used blues and purples throughout the page. I also tried adding some trendy confetti to my layout, which happens to be the holes punched when I did the border strips for this page. I just put a few dots of glue down, sprinkled the dots over it and shook off the excess.
