Being Mommy

A new sketch is up on the October Afternoon blog. I hope you will find some time to play along :)

Sketch Jan 22

I blogged about this photo last year. Can't resist making a layout about it.

I followed the sketch quite closely but I switched the positions of most of my elements. The strips on the bottom right went to upper left and my photo + journaling labels were moved to the right hand side of the layout.I really, really love that flower bouquet sticker from our Public Library collection, and converted my photo to black and white so they don't compete with each other even when they're being placed side by side. 
I also printed my journaling onto two pieces of labels, stamped a yellow ampersand and some grey arrows straight onto the white cardstock and finished my layout with a couple of starspop drops and 'empty stitches' using my sewing machine
If you decide to use my sketch, I would love to see your layout! Tag me @sashafarina - that's the fastest way for me to see it! :) Have fun!
