Before & After
I'm going to enter this layout in two challenges. I had no idea Mylan's hair had gotten this long till Susan sent me this picture the other day when she got it cut. I thought it was so great to have the before and after picture and printed it immediately so I could scrap it.
I found the perfect sketch to use with the Let's Get Sketchy - Week 3 sketch. It just happens to be my favorite weekly go to place for sketches. And I happen to be the Spotlighted there for August. Yeah me. :) You can find the latest sketch at Let's Get Sketchy here.
Next the latest challenge at Whimsical Twist where the challenge is to share your favorite layout about a favorite thing or person.
This became my favorite for many reasons. Because of the picture like I said above and of course my favorite Granddaughter and then because, I was brave enough to mix so many colors and patterns. Then mostly because I used all scraps but my background paper.
I've been trying to pull out paper collections at random and just using them, no questions asked. This was an old collection. Basic Grey - Lauderdale and I really didn't have that much left of it, but a lot of scraps of various sizes. Even the matting behind the picture was cardstock scraps. So I made it work and was very happy with the result. Here is the link for Whimsical Twist.
