Live Love Laugh | Stuck?! Sketches September 1st Challenge

Hi friends!

It's time for a new challenge over at Stuck?! Sketches! Here's the fun September 1st sketch, designed by our talented sketch designer, Laura Whitaker...

I love this design, with the strips of patterned paper behind the photo! Here's my take on the sketch, using the Fancy Pants 'Dream Big' collection...

I documented a fun selfie of my hubby and I that we took when we went on a bush walk with the kids recently. It was such a fun and relaxing afternoon with the family, and I think this photo really captures that feeling!

On the left hand side of the photo I added one of my favourite Charms Creations embellishments... a Denim, White & Black heart! I also popped a Kinder Kreations flair button on top.

I love the puffy stickers from the 'Dream Big' collection, and the phrase 'Live Love Laugh' made the perfect title for this page! I also tucked a cute die cut cloud from the collection under the top of the paper strips.

I added more of the die cuts around the page, and I adhered some of them with foam tape to give them some extra dimension.

I finished the layout off with some black ink splatters.

If you haven't done so already, I hope that you'll head on over to the Stuck?! Sketches blog and take a look at the beautiful layouts created by my fellow design team members! We'd love you to play along with us by creating a layout based on this sketch! Link up your layouts on the Stuck?! Sketches blog by September 29th to be in the running to win a prize from one of our very generous sponsors:
