Today I have a wonderful sketch for you from Sketch-N-Scrap! The prize for May comes from Robin's Nest, so be sure to upload your takes on the sketch to the SNS blog for a chance to win!
For my layout I picked 3 pictures of the kiddos from a couple weeks ago. The weather has finally started to act like spring and we've been able to play outside a couple days. Now being at the new house we don't have a lawn or established play area yet, so the kids roam. And when they roam, they tend to gravitate towards mud. It's going to be a long summer...
I absolutely love this paper line by We R Memory Keepers. I didn't have any embellishments that went with the color scheme so I made my own using Ranger Distress Inks on white card stock, then cut out various shapes. I colored the title the same way, but covered it with glossy accents to help it stand out.
If I'm cutting a shape out of white card stock, I usually cut out a dozen or so extra. That way I can quickly grab and color them to match a project. Like the flower below, I have quite a few of those cut out. While I had the inks out for the other shapes in the layout I colored a couple flowers for a beautiful, unique embellishment.
