I have been working on a few layouts this week, most of them are for - Scrapability Sketches - this is a great little forum, so make sure you check it out if you're ever lacking inspiration - Bek creates the most amazing sketches, which I find so easy to adapt to suit my style.
First up, this layout was done for the competition which has just started - Scrapability Soup. The basic idea is that every week (or so), we will be given some criteria, whether it be a sketch, a colour combination etc, and we have to create a layout based on that.
This week we were given a sketch: I decided to scrap the very first photo that was ever taken of Lily and her Daddy - she was only minutes old and one of the theatre nurses was kind enough to take it while I was being stitched back up (I had a c/section)
And a detail shot:
I love that fabric flower, I was very lucky to receive it from the super talented Krissy.
Bek has also started a 52 week 52 Challenges type of thing (I have no idea what it's actually called haha), and the first week she gave us the colour combination of; green, blue and orange. Not colours I would normally use, but still I gave it a go, and I was pleasantly surprised by the layout...I actually like it!!
Last year Lily had her very first 'school' photos taken at daycare, so I thought I would finally pull them out and scrap them.
Scrapability is also having a DT Callout, so I decided to throw my name in - why not, you gotta be in it to win it!
We were given another awesome sketch to work with -and this is the result. I really love how this layout turned out, it's definitely my favourite one that I have done in a while.
