Stuck?! Sketches August 15th DT Reveal

Hi there!

It's time for a new sketch challenge at Stuck?! Sketches! Yay! First up, let's take a look at the lovely sketch designed by Laura Whitaker...

I think that there's lots that you can do with this sketch and my fellow design team members have created some gorgeous layouts with it!

So, here is my take on the sketch...

I love these photos of my mum with my daughter taken on a family picnic by the water. I really like documenting the special relationship between my children and their extended family!

As my photos are vertical, I originally thought of rotating the sketch, but I liked the strip across the top, so I left it as is, and I think it still works well with the vertical photos.

The papers that I've used on my layout are a combination of Heidi Swapp and Amy Tangerine.

Here are some closeups of my layout...

I LOVE this cut file that I found in the Silhouette store and just had to use it as a feature on this layout! I simply cut it from white cardstock and then mounted it up with some foam tape for added dimension.

In this little cluster you will see some pretties from D-Lish Scraps, including a journal spot, a rose, and a flair! The gold hearts scattered around my layout are from the Amy Tangerine Rise & Shine collection (love this collection!).

And finally in this corner I've included a vellum wreath and chipboard flowers tucked under the photo, both from Crate Paper Maggie Holmes.

Further inspiration for my layout came from the current colour challenge at Scrap the Girls...

I love how pretty this mood board is, and I was totally inspired by the gorgeous colours in it! Luckily I had some photos that matched perfectly with these colours!

If you haven't done so already, I hope that you'll pop on over to the Stuck?! Sketches blog and take a look at the amazing layouts by my fellow design team members! We would love YOU to play along with us by creating a layout inspired by this sketch and linking it up on the Stuck?! Sketches blog by August 29th! The randomly chosen winners will win a prize from one of our very generous sponsors:
