Sweet Dreams | Scrap the Girls May Design Team Layout

Hello friends!

I can't believe that May is upon us already, but here we are at the start of a new month once again, and that means that it's time for some fresh scrappy challenges!

This month over at Scrap the Girls we have a sketch challenge! Everybody loves a good sketch to inspire your creativity right?! Well, here is our sketch for this month, designed by Kristine Davidson...

For my layout, I stuck to the basic placement of all of the elements on the sketch including the photos, the title, the embellishment clusters and the journalling, but I decided to exclude all of the paper layers behind the photos. Here's my layout...

"Sweet Dreams"

How sweet are these photos of my baby girl sleeping?! I don't often get to snap photos of her sleeping because she's quite a light sleeper and will usually only sleep when she is tucked into her cot with her bunny and dummy. But this day we were visiting my sister and she was so tired that she fell asleep on the lounge. Of course I had to take the opportunity to quietly take some photos of her!!

I finally got my hands on the Maggie Holmes Bloom patterned papers recently and I just love them! I fussy cut the yellow flowers from one of the patterned papers and I love how pretty these are!

Here are some closeups of my layout...

As I quite often do, I combined different alphas to create my title. I used a foam word from the Amy Tangerine Better Together Thickers pack combined with chipboard Thickers.

I created a little cluster here with a Maggie Holmes tag, which a added a glitter chipboard heart to, as well as a flair button and a resin flower, both from D-lish Scraps.

I added this strip from one of the cut apart sheets along the bottom of my layout to replicate the strips of patterned paper running horizontally on the sketch. The phrase on it was just perfect for my photos!

If you haven't done so already, I hope that you'll pop on over to the Scrap the Girls blog and take a look at the gorgeous layouts that my fellow design team members have created with this sketch! Link up your layouts on the Scrap the Girls blog by May 31st to have a chance of winning a prize from our very own AJ Redicliffe!

Thank you for taking the time to visit and for your lovely comments also! I will be back later today with my design team layout for Stuck?! Sketches!
