Have all of you joined in the fun over at the Canadian Scrapbooker website? The first EVER Sketchy Challenge is now on…and you have until September 30 to submit your layout!
|Awesome sketch!!! Thanks Jill!|
And here is my layout based on the sketch….
|3 teens + 1 tween = disastrous photo shoot|
And these were only three of the many MANY photos I took that Fall afternoon last October. Sigh.
If you’re wondering, the “fourth” child in the black hoodie is my nephew who lives with us part time.
Also, if you’re wondering what BoyGenius is yelling and gesturing about…..a car is driving by, so he is yelling, “Hey, whatta ya looking at?!?!?” Yep. Classic teen behavior. Lucky me.
I decided to use their “vernacular” for the title….not that they’d know what the word “vernacular” means…but if you make a mistake or do something poorly, the teens say “FAIL”.
Thus, my appropriate teen title is “Fall Fail”. Instead of thinking of myself failing as a photographer, I’d rather think of my teens failing as subjects 🙂
And so, my layout design was born!
These adorable papers, chipboard, stickers and die cuts are all from the new Bella Blvd. “Finally Fall” collection. The black sticker alpha used in the “Fall” part of the title is Harmonie. I have to tell you, designing a cute layout with a fun collection like this without using ANY techniques was a refreshing change of pace for me.
The leaves are turning and the temperatures are cooler now, and you know what that means? I have to start planning my annual Fall photo shoot….maybe this time without the teens 🙂
