6-13-12 Sketch

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

Notice that red "fold here" to add more pictures. is my take on it:

Sunflower Field
Mead, Colorado
August 14, 2010
I pretty much followed the sketch as depicted.  I even made the fold out on the right page to include another six photos!  I did this by using a CTMH 6" x 12" flip flap memory protector.  It is adhered on the backside of the 12" x 12" page protector.  I love these.  They come with a full peel-n-stick clear adhesive strip that is not noticeable.  They come in various other sizes too.

Looking back, I think I may have been a bit "sunflower obsessed" on that particular day.  I can't believe how many photos I took!  And (allow me to brag just a bit), I loved every single one of them.  Confession; I have a really hard time editing photos for layouts - I think I must use them all, and this particular sketch allowed me to use many (not all).  I might plan another shoot at this same farm this summer.

The journaling reads:
This photo shoot was certainly not
impromptu!  No sir!  I planned
every single hour of my day.  I had
seen this sunflower farm on one of
our many trips along I-25.
I wanted to photograph these giant
blooms and I planned to stop here
on my way home from a shopping
trip to my favorite scrapbook store
in Fort Collins.

Here is the layout fully extended:

16 photos!
Here are a couple of close up shots so you can see the dimension and the bling I added:

  1. Judy, Judy, Judy! This layout is a piece of art! You have indeed stayed close to the sketch, but definitely rearranged "tidbits" to make your photos, embellishments and journaling work perfectly together! Love the flip-out photos! Outstanding photography, too!

  2. Judy, this is really awesome. To add 16 photos - you're a genius. The beauty of Let's Scrap challenges is we can use multiple photos.
    Do you love your take.


  3. Judy,

    1. Welcome Carol! Glad you're here. I do hope you find some sunflowers...they are fabulous! These flowers were larger than my head! Alaska is on my "bucket list." I'll bet you have some awesome photos (and stories to tell).
