Scrapbooking School Photos (Part 2) - School Photo Hop 2015 (Stuck?! Sketches)

Hello!  I'm finally  back again with Part 2 of my Scrapbooking School Photos series on my blog (you can find Part 1 here).  Today I'm also contributing to a School Photo Hop organised by the fabulous Megan Blethen (Crafty Meggy on YouTube).  Its time to go back to school in the States, but here in New Zealand it's nearly the end of term 3 of 4.  But I always have school photos waiting to be scrapped so I was super keen to join in!  The Facebook page for the hop is here and you can join any time and share your school photo pages.

I used my August Hip Kit, and decided to scrap Sam's official 2015 photo.  Because I've been struggling with my creative flow I used the latest sketch over at Stuck Sketches.  This layout is made of Pink Fresh Studio's Happy Things collection (papers, cut parts, and puffy stickers), and Crate Paper's Wonder collection (specifically the ephemera).  The Thickers and chipboard balloon are from Dear Lizzy.

I especially love my title on this page!  The sketch showed three photos, but as I only had the one photo I used the two cut aparts which were perfect for Sam's personality. 

Our dear sweet boy at age 8, in year 4 of school!

I built this cluster totally around the Crate Paper camera.

Here is the fantastic sketch:

Here is my video, you can also watch it on YouTube here.  

Make sure you check out the layouts made by the other talented and lovely ladies that are playing along:
