9-5-12 Sketch

Today @ Let's Scrap, we have a sketch from the very talented Becky Fleck (her two Page Maps books are used often and are two of my very favorite idea books!).

Here's today's sketch:

And, here's my take on it:

This layout was my dear daughter, April's 28th birthday (last year, and yes, I am still playing catch-up).  Oh my heck, I can't believe I have such an "old" daughter!

The sketch was followed exactly, except that I had to switch the two photo sizes on the rh side to better tell the story.  Here are some close-up details:

Products & techniques:
  • scalloped circle was cut with my Creative Memories (CM) cutting system and the 12" scalloped pattern.  The circle was then hand "stitched" with a white Sakura Souffle Puffy Ink Pen.
  • Patterned paper, title & coordinating birthday stickers:  CI David Walker Birthday Bash
  • Cardstock:  CM
  • Pink twine/bows:  Queen & Co.
  • Pink heart scallops:  Doodlebug Paper Frills-Cupcake (each flower strip was cut in half down the middle)
  • Folder punch:  McGill Craftivity
  • Brads: unknown
  • #'s 2 and 8:  Basic Grey Kioshi
  • Computer journaling cut into strips
There you have it.  Happy "belated" birthday to April!
