Oh Yeah!

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

Well, the good thing about having kids is there are always photos available to scrap.   I often have a hard time deciding how many I need to print to tell a story.  I usually wind up printing too many, then having a hard time deciding on a design.  Case in point, photos of my younger son trying to get some graham crackers off the table. He was trying so hard and had so many great looks on his face!  I narrowed it down to four and managed to get them onto one page, thanks to Sketches in Thyme Sketch #98.

I stayed true to the look of the design, but used my standard 4x6 photos, cropping them a little where necessary.  Though I did move the journaling to the top row.  Using larger photos means less room for extra papers and embellishments.  Thank goodness for washi tape.  Always an easy way to add pattern, and embellish at the same time. A few wood button and some twine were the only other things I added, and that was enough.  A fun sketch.  I might revisit it in the future, using fewer photos and more PP instead.
