The beginning of the month means there is a new sketch by Sue Sykes over at the Canadian Scrapbooker Sketchy Gallery. This time Sue designed a double page sketch…
Here is what I created using Pink Paislee‘s “Indigo Bleu” collection…
This year BoyGenius was agreeable about our annual Fall photo shoot, and I managed to get some decent pics of him. I had been thinking about designing a layout about him to document the significant transformation he has undergone in the past year.
Gone is the selfish moody teenager. His view of the world has dramatically changed, and he has embraced a new philosophy of peace and love, wanting to take action and make a difference somehow.
I am so excited about the possibilities ahead of him and finally feel confident that he is finding his way in this confusing world.
Here is the journaling spot…
These layered journaling spots on the two pages are actually speech bubbles in a package of die cuts, but I cut off those little pointy things to change the shapes.
I cut the title with a Sizzix Tim Holtz alphabet die from grey Bazzill card stock.
|The Itty Bitty alpha stickers are Pink Paislee. The twill measuring tape ribbon is Harmonie.
The Indigo Bleu tags come in a package of 6…and I used all of them for this sketch!
|The little wood man is Studio Calico.
|This quote by Jimi Hendrix is exactly how BG is thinking these days.
Sue Sykes surprised us with a 2-page sketch, and at first I was worried about the number of photos I needed, but now I do think this layout seems to capture a really happy time in the life of BoyGenius.
