Books Are For Reading plus Process Video

I'm back with another layout for Nuts About Sketches. This sketch was a lot of fun to work with. I cropped two photos down and then matted as one and used a wood veneer 3x4 card for the other photo placement. As soon as I received this 3x4 card I knew I wanted to use it with these photos of my kids.  They were constantly emptying the bookshelves to read all the books and I caught them using the bookshelf as a bunk bed this day. Too cute! I combined alpha buttons and two other alpha stickers to make up the title 'Books are for reading, not for bookshelves'.

Some Close ups,
I used stamped images for my embellishments and pop dotted them up. Using a few markers I very lightly added some color to them. I didn't want them to stand out too much but wanted a bit of color.

The alpha buttons add a pop of color to carry the red through the layout and a bit of fun as well.
