Happy Girl (Creative Scrappers)

Hello!  When I saw this month's sketch over at Creative Scrappers I just knew I had to play along.  Its Sketch 300, and its a grid - so many fun options on how to play with this one!  I knew I didn't want my photo to take up the real estate of one of the squares, but rather be layered over the top, and I knew I wanted to keep it 4x6 size because I'd already had it printed.

My photo is of Brielle at 15 months at a park in town, and I love the colour tones in the photo.  I used scraps from my September Hip Kit, and tried to pull all of the coral/pink colours in the papers.  I added extra texture with my sewing machine, and had so much fun embellishing!

One of the little cut apart frames was perfect for my journalling.

The Cute Girl and Gather chipboard were perfect together for my title, and i love the tassel banner.

I popped my photo up on foam for dimension, which meant I could tuck some chipboard flowers underneath.

And here is the sketch.

Thanks so much for looking!
