Share a Coke and a Smile

Today I'm back with my 2nd Design Team post for Nuts About Sketches. This was a double page sketch but I had these photos that were perfect so I just used one of the pages.


The sketch had all sizes of arrows  that I loved so I played with that and added CTMH Arrow wash tape going down between the two background papers then used various arrows cut from the Artiste Cartridge and stamped with sentiments, cork arrows, sticker arrows from simple stories with words already printed on them. I really like how it all came together so well even using multiple lines of product.  I even created the title with four different alphas from four different companies.


Products used -
MME My Girl
Simple Stories Alpha & stickers
Enamel dots

This sketch was a lot of fun to play with and I'll be using it again for a double layout. I'm really pleased with how this layout turned out but I'm not sure if it's the photos or the layout I like most. LOL

I hope you'll try the layout and share with me here or on my Facebook page, facebook.com/MyScrappyIdeas

SG Blog Hop - Ten Tiny Toes


Welcome to the Scrapbook Generation Blog Hop for September. If this is your first stop, you might like to start at the Scrapbook Generation blog and then hop through each link. 

This is another layout for my daughters baby album. The sketch made it super quick to pull together along with Simple Stories Vintage Bliss paper and embellishments.



I couldn't resist using some rub ons from my stash for this photo. The first look we had of my daughter during a sonogram was of her sucking on her toes so it's too cute to see her still do it. That is some kind of flexibility. LOL


I've used the 3X4 cards for all of the journalling spots through out the album and again I used a lot of rubons from my stash to add interest to my layout. The circles were all punched from the 3X4 cards as well.



I chose a sketch from the One Page Sketches for Scrapbooking Vol 1. 

You can find the SG sketches in their books and as downloads in the SG store, and there is a free one every month in case you wanted to try it out. 

Next on the hop is Lori - http://savingmine.blogspot.com  leave a comment on each blog and one lucky commenter will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store.

The winner will be drawn on Monday, September 8th which leaves you one week to leave a comment.
