DT layout

 I am very happy to announce that I will be staying on with Nuts About Sketches as a dt member. I really love Shawn's sketches because it is so easy for me to create awesome layouts with them. If you haven't tried one of her sketches you totally should. She is the best!

So for this round Shawn offered up two sketches for us to choose from. I love them both but only had time to do one so I chose this one:

 And created this:

I just loved these photos of my oldest and youngest together, so much that I did some fun stuff with them in photoshop before printing them out. So I wanted them to go on a special lo where they were highlighted. I chose a white background so the darker (not quite as dark as they are here, winter, bad light sorry) photos would pop more and just did a little embellishing with the adorable Moxxie Wee Ones line.

Here I used the Wee Ones die-cuts and stickers and did a little bit of outlining with a green marker.
Here I layered the Love ticket onto another pp that I hand cut to be slightly larger but the same shape. I used foam adhesive to make my own 3D embellishment. Then I used 3 more stickers but popped the butterfly with foam adhesive as well.
  I added the die-cut border, drew my journaling lines using a ruler and added my journaling. I also outlined the photos with one line of green marker, a little easier to see in the top close up.

Simple but effective. Thanks so much for stopping by! If you like what you see I'd love for you to become a follower and don't forget to check out the rest of the new dt and Shawn's awesome sketches Here.

I think the photos are wonderful because the background lighting gives your children a halo effect. So nice to see your own handwriting in your journaling. Gorgeous work!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, it was truly apprecited. Melinda
