Hello! I have a new layout to share! I started with this sketch from "Sketches In Thyme":
I found these photos that my mom took a couple of years ago when my boys stayed with them for a week. As you can see, I had one more photo than the sketch called for, so I moved a few things around. I pulled some random papers together and cut them into strips. I decided to emboss the piece of cardstock for some added texture and pattern. Since my folder was not 12 inches long or wide, I embossed one end of the strip and then the other end. There was about an inch in the middle that didn't get embossed, but I covered that with one of my photos and some embellishments.
I also put my Cricut to work, cutting my title and dog embellishments. I added some extra color to my layout with some spray mists before I added my photos and embellishments. I lightly sprayed the whole background with brown mist and then used the packaging technique to add the yellow.
