100 Percent Fun (Paper Bakery Sketch #9)

I played along with the latest sketch (#9) over at Paper Bakery, and amazingly I actually got most of my layout made at a Friday night crop with friends.  If you're scrapped with me at a crop before, you'll know that I struggle to be productive outside of my own creative space (and I get way too distracted)!  

Sketch #9 is full of lovely layers, and was designed by the very talented Juliana Michaels:

Last week I struggled with my creative flow, such that I felt that it had taken a holiday and hadn't invited me!  I decided to stick closely to the sketch, and use my May Paper Bakery Kit.  I'd chosen some recent photos of my kids playing in the snow, and I'd purposefully not lightened them, as I wanted them to represent the true state of the weather that day.  So when I placed them on the layout, the lovely bright layers of the kit totally took away from my photos. The next day I tore them off (very bravely, I must add), and replaced them with these two photos of my niece holding my kids upside down as they played in the Autumn leaves at Grandma's house.

So here is my layout:

I just love the pure look of joy on Azaria's face in this one!

I added the black Dear Lizzy thickers, Bella Blvd washi tape, Studio Calico mist, white card stock, and the pie chart stamp which is an exclusive to Paper Bakery.  Paper Bakery is awesome, I can't recommend it enough if you're looking for a kit club to join.

I didn't add much writing on this one, as I'm creating several pages about the same day.

Thanks for looking, be blessed
