Scrap the Boys February challenge
This month at Scrap the Boys, the challenge is to use this sketch:
Now even though this is a fairly simple, but gorgeous sketch, it is actually a challenge, to get onto paper something that looks good.
I wanted to scrap this lovely photo of my great nephew Max, as it was just so appealing, but I didn't want to detract from the photo. At the same time I didn't want a boring background for the photo to go on. I really wanted the photo to take pride of place on the layout, so kept the colour scheme neutral, with the grey tones of the patterned paper on the white cardstock.
I had this paper rope which I made into circles to represent the circles on the sketch.
Instead of adding something to each section on the sketch, I added the extra bits to the middle section. I also added to my layout 3 gorgeous Charms Super Stars, perfect embellishment for this layout.
I know this looks simple, but I think it needed to be.
Thanks for looking at my layout, and for any comments you may leave.
