Easter is over but...

What do you do with all those Easter Egg Hunt photos?
Well, picking out Moxxie's awesome Homespun Easter line was the easy part, but I'll admit I struggle a bit with 2 page layouts. Like everyone else, sometimes I have enough photos that I just have to do some 2 pagers or I'm going to be scrapping this event forever. But what to do then if I'm not a stellar 2 page layout scrapper? Well, use a sketch of course. So here is my favorite sketch site Nuts About Sketches. I am just in love with these sketches. They are so easy for me to use, even the 2 page ones.
 Recently Shawn posted a 2 page layout that I felt was perfect for some of my Easter photos that I needed to get scrapped. Here is the sketch:

And here is the layout I created using the sketch and Homespun Easter:

I did not have the perfect photos for this sketch, but I had plenty and I found a way for this sketch to work for me. As you can see I left one of my photos long and then added in embellishment where the other photo would go. Since some of my photos were oriented in a way that wouldn't work with the design of the right side of the sketch, I just put my photos on and then filled in the space with more embellishment. Super easy to mix it up a bit to fit your needs but you can still see the sketch design in my layout.

 Using Moxxie's stickers made it easy to fill in this photo space with embellishment. I used the cute Moxxie stickers, a little washi tape and a flower brad. You can also see the hand stitching I added here.

The main reason I used circles on 2 of my photos is because I took them on a diagonal with my camera. So they did not fit well with the grid shape of the sketch but I think the circles turned out cute and added a lot to my layout. Here I finished out the grid with the egg border die-cut which I trimmed down and then popped all of the squares of eggs out so that I could put them back in sitting up and with a few popped out for more dimension.

Here I used more Moxxie stickers for my title, a couple die-cuts, more twine and brads and pins, some of which were laying on my table for way too long. Love using those up!

 Thanks so much for stopping by today! Ange
