Welcome! Today we are here with our final summer sketch. I hope you have had a lovely summer of memory making. And today we have a sketch to help you have a successful time of memory keeping! This week I have thought been thinking a lot about how much I love scrapbooking and how grateful I am to have a way to preserve our daily life. As we begin three new grades this year, I am so very excited for all that is to come. And on Monday when the house is quiet, I can sit with my scrapbooks and remember times past. To see how much they have changed. And to know that their milestones are recorded. Such peace it brings to know that when I forget the stories it will be okay, as they are written down!
This week, to help me knock out a page and a memory, I made a sketch from Cristina's layout, The Best.
I might have been beguiled by the ice cream: :) No, really, I was drawn to the asymmetry and all the little bits of patterned paper. I thought it would make for a fun sketch and layout. (And I thought maybe it would work as well for four photos as two. We'll have to see...)
Here is how the sketch turned out.
Here is how my layout turned out.
Oddly, one of the things I loved most was the big title, and then I had a long one that couldn't fit being that big. Sigh. I do love the campfire from Crystal Wilkerson though. Does finding the right embellishment make you as happy as it makes me?
Kate used the sketch to create a lovely layout that makes me want to pack up and go back to the beach.
It also made me want to use the sketch again with three photos. So I did!
This was last year. Good to get the page done before this new year starts!
