And here is what I came up with:





These two adorable girls are my older grand children.  We had such a great time this day going shopping and getting some lunch.  Then we came back to my house and did some crafting.  The papers are Bazzill, Recollections, and Anna Griffin.  The tags are from Anna Griffins Totally Tags.  I used Dazzles for the corners, the border under the photo and the butterfly.  Everything else is from my very large stash.  I used Perfect Layers to do all of my matting.

ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Time! September 11, 2015

Happy Friday everyone!  It is Sketch-y Friday over at ScrapMuch? and I hope you will play along with us this week.  You can play along using a new sketch that will be posted every Friday and enter your layout over at the ScrapMuch? blog for a chance to win a prize.  A winner will be selected at the end of the month!  All the rules and how to link up your layout(s) are posted on the the ScrapMuch? blog.   Here is this weeks sketch from Laura:


And here is what I came up with:


It is so funny, I have never been much of a sketch person.  So when I joined the ScrapMuch? Design Team, I though how hard can this be?  I can follow directions, I am a bit anal, and I like to scrapbook.  However it became hard for me, at first.  My first few sketches, I followed to the letter.  I would look at my finished layout and I would think, this is not how I do layouts.  Well then enter the "light bulb" moment.  A sketch is a guide to help you try different things in shapes and colors.  It helps you with placement, reminds you to add a title, and makes you remember to journal.  So now all of my completed projects are so me and I am loving the end results!

For this sketch, I turned it upside down!  It worked so much better with my photos and elements and I love the end product.  My papers are Bazzill, Creative Memories, and Me And My Big Ideas.  The circle element was cut with my Cricut Explore, the tag is from Anna Griffins Totally Tags, and the rhinestone flourish is Recollections.  My title is chip board letters by The Paper Studio and I used Rangers black diamond Stickles to cover them.  I matted my photos using Perfect Layers.

I hope you enjoyed my layout!  Please leave me a comment and don't forget to enter your layout using this sketch over at the ScrapMuch? blog.
