Can you believe it is August already? Where did our summer go? My son starts back to half days with band camp this coming week and then one more week of break and then school will start! YIKES! So with the start of a new month is the start of a new sketch challenge by me over at Personalscrapper! Here is this month' sketch, but with a twist...this month's sketch was based on an AWESOME layout by my cyber friend and fellow scrapper Lydia! I just adored her HAND IN HAND THROUGH THE SAND layout so much I just had to make it into a sketch! So glad she graciously agreed to let me do it (thanks Lydia!)
For my layout based on this sketch I used a fun photo taken of my son on the Fourth of July while swimming in my parent's neighborhood pool with his cousins. My niece wanted him to float with her Princess floatie, and as you can see it was a bit small for him! I can't believe he let himself be photographed with it! I used papers by Bo Bunny (blue and yellow- LOVE their basics and dots line!) and Jillibean Soup (stripe) as well as Bella Blvd (pink). The title was created using rub ons (thanks to Jessica for loaning me the pink ones!), I like the way it looks, I haven't used rub ons in years, I think I'm going to start using them again, they really are fun and easy to use. Embellishments are by Little Yellow Bicycle and Jillibean soup. This was another one of those layouts were I combined a bunch of different manufacturers to get the look I was wanting. Hope you enjoy the sketch as much as I did, if you use it please link up your layout in the comments section so we can get a peek! Stay cool everyone!
