It seems like I've only been finding the time to work on my design team layouts lately, and I want to get back in the groove and join in with other challenges as well. I have met so many wonderful friends and gained so much inspiration from all of the scrapbook challenge sites, and I feel like I've been missing out. I'm ready to put the peddle to the metal and get some more scrapping done!
It took me all day, but I was able to create a layout using a sketch from Shimelle's blog sketches. Here's the sketch I worked with:
I found a neutral background paper from Pink Paislee that I thought would work well for my base. Then I went to my box of scraps and found some patterned papers that I could use to create the layered strips. Here is what I came up with:
The topic for my layout was inspired by the S.W.A.T. - Drill #1 challenge, "All About You". My journaling turned out to be much more than I planned on adding, but I wanted to include the details and comparisons of how my photo taking has changed over the years as well as how the cameras that I have used have evolved. I am happy to have been able to join in on the fun at S.W.A.T., and look forward to joining in on more challenges in the future.
I also want to give you a heads up on something fun that is coming up real soon! Let's Get Sketchy is turning "1", and we will be having a birthday blog hop and prize giveaways all month long!
Be sure to mark your calendars!
Have a wonderful rest of your week!
