When I started working on this challenge I went through my MANY saved sketches for some inspiration. I found this sketch,
This really cute sketch is from Creative Genealogy Scrapbooking. I picked out my pictures first and then the paper that I wanted to use. The more I tried to make my layout match the sketch the more frustrated I got. It took me about 3 hours to make this ONE layout and it doesn't look a whole lot like the sketch. Oh, there are bits and pieces of it here and there, but I started laughing when I thought about trying to edit a video of me trying things then taking them off. Trying things...taking them off...trying things...Oh, you get the idea. It's something I like to call "my creative process", just not much fun to film and edit!
Here is the layout that I ended up creating using this sketch,
I really had fun making that pocket. I almost cut up a pair of my jeans, but after much debate I decided not to. (it's my skinny jeans that I hope to get back into someday!)
I hope that you will join us this week at ScrapTiffany! I'll be here with another ScrapTiffany challenge next Monday.
