I am hoping to catch up on the Rose series from Scrapbook Steals before the deadline to enter. I still have two sketches to go, but I have until tomorrow, so I have hope. If you'd like to check out this sketch, please do so here. I am not 100% in love with how this layout came together, but you can't win 'em all, I suppose. It's another memory documented and THAT is what is important.
Another positive I see here is that I got to use the Studio Calico paper as a background. I wanted to cut into it for my last layout but I just knew it would make a good background, so I set it aside. I think it looks great here. I tried to use as much yellow as possible in my embellishments since there is that tiny bit of yellow in the bottom left of the paper and in the paper strip layered under the title. I originally used a journaling card from the Cocoa Daisy Day In The Life cards (I bought just the cards rather than the entire kit and just did the same for May's kit as well) but there wasn't enough yellow in them and what yellow they did have was just too bright for the layout. Instead, I found a random Studio Calico kit card from a stack I had in my Project Life organizer (blog post here) and it was subtle enough to not unbalance the top of the layout.
The flair here is from a Studio Calico kit with an October Afternoon circle layered underneath. Nothing crazy here, but you can probably see why I don't particular love how this one turned out. :D
I had inked this pair of resist glasses as a potential option for an embellishment in a layout I made the other day and it just so happened to work here. When I remembered this piece, it was about the time that I realized I had done two layouts that featured some type of glasses in a very short time frame. I just grabbed cute photos that worked with the sketch. I am just happy I didn't use the same kit for both layouts, haha. The card underneath is intended to be a speech bubble, but since they really aren't my thing and the glasses were big enough to cover them, I strategically placed it so that it would just look like a yellow band across the top. The journaling was pretty simple and just explained that my 3 year old has phases where he likes to play with glasses of all types and that he knows how to rock them really well.
Thanks for stopping by!
