It's Make It Monday over at The Memory Nest, and we have a great new sketch for you this week. During July and August the design team has been split up into two teams and we have a new sketch for you every single week. I am on Team 2, so you'll be seeing my layouts on the second and fourth Monday of the month. I hope to play along with the other sketches, too.
Here is this week's sketch - courtesy of Leslie:
When I saw the stars on this sketch I knew I would be making a Fourth of July layout. I still have lots of pictures from previous years on the fourth that need to be scrapped, so it was a perfect fit.
It is tradition for us to take a family photo on the fourth, and this was the best photo of the whole family from that day. I love that the dog is even peeking out from between Shawn and Abby's legs!
For my layout I used these old papers from the stack I pulled for my 100 patterned paper challenge. They are some of my favorite from Carolee's Creations.
I die cut and punched a lot of different sized stars to fill in the space between the three larger stars. Apparently these old shaped hole punches are coming back in style. It's a good thing that I held on to mine from years ago. I won't have to be running out and buying them!
Stop by The Memory Nest to see the layouts from the rest of the team. I hope that you play along with us. There is a weekly prize and a grand prize, so get those layouts linked up!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back soon with another project to share with you!
