Holidays, life and spending time with family always talks the priority in my life. I only have a few more years with the kids before they take flight from the nest, so soaking up every moment with them is my “Me” time anymore. However, I am able to sneak in an occasional craft day here or there. I finally was able to do this yesterday. I just print a is couple hundred pictures from 2006, and so the journey of scraping this year begins. I decided to check out a few of my inspiration sites and found the sketch I wanted to work with over at Let’s Get Sketchy. I was working with February 1st challenge..This included a sketch and mood board.
There wasn’t much to change from the original sketch for what I needed to work with my photos. As always I turned it into a two page layout. The pattern paper used in this layout is from Piggy Tales in the Little Miss Muffet collection. On the back side of the patterns were the purple and pink cardstock used in the layout also. The brown and white cardstock come from my stash. From scrap I made the banner pieces in the top right corner. The lettering comes from Basic Grey from the fruitcake collection. I have since adjusted the layout of the letters to be more pleasing to the eye.
I quickly threw together these itty bitty flowers to complete the look on the page. These flowers rolled rosette is made from tan muslin, a lavender flower, and finally a flax layered flower. These can be found at my shop Scary Cute, if they aren’t listed I always can make a custom order up. I did however ke some changes to the centers to match my pages.
The second page just mirrors a similar layout with a few tweaks to fit the picture placement. The heart was in my stash and I am not sure where it comes from. I still need to add journaling and this will be complete.
