Happy Friday, Everyone!!
My week has been totally off this week. I did NOT realize today was Friday. I was thinking it was Thursday and I was thinking Thursday was Wednesday. Sigh!! But, I'm SO glad it IS Friday! I'm ready for the weekend!!
Today I'm sharing a fun layout with all of you. I decided to FINALLY scrap a layout this year, lol. I haven't scrapped a layout in a little over a month. It was time to get busy! So, I seen a sketch challenge over at The Paper Bakery, and as many of you know, I'm a sucker for sketches!! So, I decided to give it a whirl this evening and get some scrap-therapy in. It was much needed and well over do! So, let's take a peek!
Here is the sketch
And, here is my take on the sketch
I just LOVE this photo of my youngest. Even when he is lost in though and daydreaming, he is still so photogenic! I wish I was! But, when I seen this photo I didn't want to do a "daydreaming" or "lost in thought" layout with this one, I wanted to share my memories of him and "this jacket". He had this jacket for about 2 years. I literally JUST threw it out about a week ago (yes, I had to do it on the sly). He wore this jacket EVERYWHERE; to eat, to bed, to everywhere! As my journaling says, it was like it was his security blanket and he would have worn that jacket to take a bath too, if he could. I'm not sure what it was about this jacket that he loved so much, but it certainly was his FAVORITE!
I really had a lot of fun with this sketch. I'm continuing to push myself to move out of my comfort zone and think outside of "my box". I'm super satisfied how this turned out. And, the best part of sketches is that you can twist them, flip them, or rotate them and make your layout unique. No two layouts using a sketch will ever be the same... well most of the time, lol.
For this layout I used the following products:
Studio Calico - Flair, Plastic Letters (green)
Cardstock - Bazzill, American Crafts
Basic Grey Designer Paper
Amy Tangerine - Puffy Stickers
MME - Cut & Paste Stickers
Cosmo Cricket - Tiny Type stickers (favorite)
Corrugated star die-cut
American Crafts Precision Pen
Thanks for stopping by today and taking a peek at my layout. I hope you all have a scrap happy day!
