5-30-12 Sketch

Here is the sketch for today over at Let's Scrap (come check it out):

And here is my take on it:

Subject matter: Bill (of course). He really is a fisherman, through and through. Absolutely loves it. There has never been any instance of Bill wetting a line without reeling in a fish...or two...or ten...or twenty.  Every single time, he catches something. His very favorite place to fish is the Miracle Mile in Wyoming (a good 5-hour drive from home), but...the fish there are (extra) huge for some reason. And, boy are they good eating! I always wish he could fish a little closer to home. This is Colorado...gosh darn it!!

(Technical) notes on the layout vs. the sketch:

If you'll notice, the little photos are supposed to be 2" x 2".  Well, I just couldn't bring myself to cut them any smaller.  They ended up at 2" x 3" which meant they were too large for inside the border area.  I "filled" in about 1.5" of extra space with the fisherman word paper (TPC Studio, Reel Me In).  The cute confetti circles (Little Yellow Bicycle) came that way.  I did not sew them!

Hmmm....makes me want to go camping!!


  1. Just so beautiful and creative.

  2. Although there is not family history of fishing, my son, my nephew and my son-in-law are bonded together as relatives, as long-time friends, and also as fishermen! They all profess that a day fishing and catching nothing is better than a day of not fishing! Here, you have taken a great range of similar photos and made them come together like pages of a good book! You began with a great layout, cool photos and perfect elements and have created something very special!
