LGS Challenge #30 - Grade 3 Girl!

Once again I was too late to get my layout posted on the Let's Get Sketchy blog today but I DID play along with this week's sketch so I thought I'd share it with you.

As a reminder, here is the sketch this week - Challenge #30


And my layout.


I have a confession ... I'm not completely in love with it. I'm not sure what it is - probably that aqua card stock background - but something about this layout makes me cringe. Sigh. They can't all be winners I suppose! 
What makes me extremely happy though is the fact that once again I have scrapped a recent event! I may never "catch up" with my kids lives but at least their current memories are getting onto layouts!!

I had some fun with sequins on this layout. I don't think I've used them before even though they've been sitting in my stash for ... years? Okay, maybe A year. As in one ... and a half? Oh, who knows. The important thing is that I finally used them! And I like them and will use them again!!


I went small with my title this time. All that white space in this photo was screaming for something so I decided to add my title there. These fun purple letter stickers fit the bill perfectly!

Okay, that's it. That's all I'm going to say about it. Now please check out the GORGEOUS layouts over at Let's Get Sketchy and then go make your own!

  3. Wow, I love this sketch and I loooooove your page - I think you're being a wee bit hard on yourself here! The colours work so well, I think you've mastered the gallon/pint/whatever rule ('kay, can't think Imperial with the liquid measurements!) and love the sequins, too!!! Which reminds me, I should break out the iRock again. Anyway, it does feel good to get some recent stuff down, doesn't it? I'm working on some pics right now of this month, too - AMAZING!!! All right, Brenna squealing at me, gotta run - have a great week!

  4. I love the mix of colors! I think it's a wonderful layout. I do know what you mean though when you look at your project and think "hmmm not quite right" but you can't put your finger on it. I think it's adorable!
