Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop - May Sketch


Hello my crafty friends and welcome to another blog hop. Have you just hopped in from Sue? or have you started with me? However you got here, please do hop round and visit all the lovely people taking part this month, I know you'll get lots of inspiration from everyone

This month its a sketch challenge. I love these, it's so easy when you're bit short of time but still would like to put a layout together like I have this month. They're also great when you get crafters block. 

I have a bunch of photos in a big envelope that I go through every month to choose which ones to use. These are favourites that I have had printed (some time ago!). I took out the flowers from the sketch and added a heart using the scallop heart punch and drew on a stitched edge effect using a white gel pen. I kept the butterflies and punched them using primary colours. I then created some tags also using the primary colours - the blue one with the ribbon will have journaling on it. That too has the stitching effect. Finally I added a line of blue "stitching" to one layer of the paper across the bottom of the layout.

This is one of my grandsons. He has the biggest bluest eyes I've ever seen and has very blonde hair.  I've blanked out his face so I can share the layout here. I love that close up photo showing how blue his eyes are
