Hi all! I hope you are having a fabulous week! I got a chance to scrapbook this week and have my calendar page ready for next month! I started with this sketch from Stick it Down:
This sketch challenged me a bit as I like to line my photos up, but I eventually figured out how to make it work.
I started by finding this flower cut that had openings for the petals and filled the openings with patterned paper.
I then stamped leaves on my background cardstock using a very old Stampin Up set that I absolutely love. I also cut some leaves from patterned paper to add some dimension.
Once the layout was assembled, I decided it needed a bit more so I added the sequins with the leaves. I am also entering this in the Scrapping Everyday Miracles Birthday Crop challenge #2, which was tic-tac-toe. I chose the diagonal from top left to lower right: 3+ photos, patterned paper, and a sketch. Finally, Paper Issues has a challenge going on right now called "How 'Bout Them Apples" which includes making a layout about fall. Since this layout is about October, it is definitely about fall!
