Jillibean Soup Sketch

Happy Monday! We had another gorgeous weekend that we filled with friends and pool time and good food. I love summer! I decided to play along with the sketch on the Jillibean Soup blog this month. Here it is...

At first I was a bit stumped with all the squares and places for photos. So I decided to just go with 3 photos and try to keep my layout horizontally interesting. I'm not even sure that makes sense, but here's my layout.


I used some Spotted Owl Soup paper to create this birthday layout for my daughter. She had an ice cream sundae bar at her last big party and it was fun watching all the kids dive into all the toppings and whipped cream. I added lots of horizontal strips and bits. I love this fun bright green color!


I've been loving all the corrugated shapes lately. I seen to be reaching for them everytime I sit down at my craft table.


This sketch was definitely a challenge for me. But i'm happy to have some of these birthday photos scrapped and IN the family album. Yeah for progress!

Thanks for stopping by today!
