Well, here it is ... my Project 12 layout for July. I've actually had it completed for about a week or so but forgot to download the pictures from my camera until yesterday. Just now I saw Davinie's post and realized I had to get this posted and entered! The days are really flying past me lately!
Here is the PageMaps sketch by Becky Fleck that we were given:
And here is my layout.
I really liked the rounded corners in the sketch. I bought a corner rounder thingy a while back and usually forget to use it! It was nice to pull it out again. I decided to use larger pictures this month. I tend to use small pictures on my layouts because I'm trying to fit so many on. I admit it!! I need therapy for "wanting to use too many pictures"! I'm just so in love with my girls that I want to show them off! I also switched up the right side of the layout to accomodate more pictures (see, I need a Support Group!)
Here's a close up of the left hand side of the layout. Oh, and what'dya know! A picture of me!! Davinie made a similar comment and I laughed out loud because I knew I had done the same thing!
Here is the right hand side of the layout. The sketch has a long journalling strip and a single picture but I took the liberty (I think they call it creative license - really that's just an excuse to break the rules, right?) of making the long strip one of pictures instead. The journalling cards I've been using since the beginning fit better with this switch-up too. And I could round the corners on it. Bonus!
