Creative Scrappers Sketch #125

Hi Everyone!! I decided to play along with Creative Scrappers this week. This is an awesome sketch blog, you should definitely check it out!! Here is the sketch...


And here is my layout. I used the Add-On kit from 3 Scrappy Boys this month, which features the Wander line from Basic Grey!


You may be asking yourself...blues and greens with a sunset photo? Yeah, I wasn't sure it was going to work either. But I played with the photo a bit in photoshop and made it a bit dark and mysterious with just a pop of sun peeking over the horizon. And I think it works! And you really can't go wrong with circles, lots and lots of circles!


A little bit of paint, some flowers, and some letters from Cosmo Cricket finished it off!


I went to Hawaii last year at Thanksgiving and this is the first photo i've scrapped from that trip! I have sooooo many photos, it's completely overwhelming. So I chose to ignore them for now. Has that ever happened to you??

Happy Wednesday everyone, thanks for stopping by!

What a pretty layout Mara! I have done the same thing. Have you seen the new page protectors that are divided into 4x6 slots. You could always slip 5 in and scrap a 4x6 spot with journaling or whatever. I have yet to try it, but keep saying I will. Haha!

I think the BG papers work wonderfully with the sunset picture! I love all of the circles and the paint behind the picture is just perfect.
