I am pretty sure I have previously mentioned that I have a small scrappy crush on Jen Jockish--her layouts are always so fun to look at and she is super great at layering. So, when this past week's Sunday Sketch at Studio Calico was posted and it was based off of a Jen Jockish layout, I jumped at it! You can see it here. And this is what I came up with.....
Being me of course, I went for a more simple, layered take on the sketch. (Really, I do try to amp up the layering, but I seem to have a low threshold for layering.) The addition of the pink chevrons was a last minute call and I really liked how they contrasted with the rest of the colors. Prior to this I just felt that the page was too monochromatic even with the blue pp behind the photo. I thought the pops of pink really helped to cement the subject of my layout--my dd's fun and energetic personality.
Before I leave to fold some laundry (yuck), I want to mention that yesterday I was the featured member on the Scraptastic Kit Club blog. How fun is that?!
