Scrapbook Generation Quarterly Blog Hop

Monday, March 3, 2014

It's Blog Hop time!  Welcome to the Scrapbook Generation Blog Hop for March.  You should have arrived here from Steffanies's Blog.  If this is your first stop, you might like to go back to the Scrapbook Generation blog and then hop through each link from there.

I chose a sketch from the SG 2 page sketchbook  Volume 5.  I liked the simplicity of the sketch, but the ability to change it up as much or as little as I wanted.


For this page in particular, I liked the strips of paper. For me, they worked well with the photos of my son the day he got his braces.  I chose to use shades of grey in  a variety of geometric patterns. Again, it emphasizes the braces.  It needed some color so I chose to add red and turquoise. They were fun and contrast the grey nicely.  I moved the placement of the title and embellishments around. lastly I added some extra color by matting the LO on turquoise patterned paper.

You can find the SG sketches in their books and as downloads in the SG store, and there is a free one every month in case you wanted to try it out.

Next on the hop is Melissa. Please leave a comment on each blog and one lucky commenter will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store. The winner will be drawn on Monday, March 10th, so you have one week to leave a comment.

In case you get lost at any point, here is the list all the blogs
