The sketch they provided this month is great, but it's for a single page layout, and if you know me you know I scrap almost entirely in two page spreads. So I created my own right hand page to go with their sketch. Here's the sketch:
And here's the layout I created:
I used the Flying High paper line for my layout. Its fun & playful style was perfect for my daughter's 5th birthday. We have a little tradition in our house that no matter what day of the week your birthday falls on, you get a birthday dinner and your gift. Hence the photos of everyone eating soft tacos - that was Holly's choice.
- I used the tone on tone lines of my scalloped circle paper as built-in lines for journaling. No need to add anything extra.
- I cut out elements from one of the papers for the clouds and bird & birdhouse to create my little scene. I also used two elements from the punch-out sheet for the sun.
- I added some felt ribbon and glitter cardstock (both items from American Crafts) for some extra texture.
