I was supposed to be cleaning up my desk when I realized
that the Sketch N Scrap throw back Thursday sketch &
the Stuck Sketch were very similar.
So of course I got of track & started a layout!
I have been looking at the sketches & breaking them down into
basic elements / design features.
This allows me, still use the sketch but make it all my own.
Here is the sketch from Sketch n Scrap
You can check out their site here: http://sketchnscrap.blogspot.ca/
I needed 3 pictures, a back ground mat, 3 fish tail strips, layered strips,
and groups of embellishments with a title.
Here is what I came up with :
as you can see I have a row of three pictures,
I have three fish tails,
I have layered strips ( the scalloped trim was too much),
I have groups of embellishments,
a tag tucked under & a title in a banner.
Not an exact match but my version!
How does everyone get stellar Christmas morning photos,
my kids don't where matching pajamas,
they don't do their hair before pictures, but they are so precious to me.
I had a few more pictures so I created a second layout for Christmas Eve.
Every Christmas Eve we got to my in-laws to open gifts
then we have dinner at one of the Aunt / Uncles houses.
The top right is in in-laws with all their grand kids,
below is my daughter with the only other girl,
her cousin Madison , and lastly My daughter with her grandfather,
who has been pretty sick there last few years.
I can't believe I did Christmas for this year Already!!
