Scrapbook Challenges Sketch #484

Hello everyone! I hope that you had a good weekend! We finally had some sunshine and warm temperatures, so it's finally starting to feel like summer break. 

We have a new sketch up today over at Scrapbook Challenges. This is a great sketch for one bigger sized photo, or do like I did and use 2 smaller photos. 

I have the hardest time photographing layouts with a white background! No matter how good (or bad) the lighting is, it always seems to look washed of these days I will learn how to take a better photo, or use a different color background! 

I've had these photos of Ada and Matthew out on my desk for a while now, and I am so glad that I finally got them scrapped. These are from when we went to the pool last summer. #1 Ada thought it was pretty cool that Matthew hung out with us in the kiddie pool for a while, but when he started catching water in his hands and then throwing it on her, well, she just that was the greatest. Everything he does just amazes her!

For this layout I used some more scraps from Echo Park's Splash collection, and the little bits of pink are from Doodlebug - I do believe it is some of their first collections! I found a bunch more of it in my stash this weekend and decided to use on it while I can!

Stop by Scrapbook Challenges to see the beautiful layouts from the rest of the design team. I hope you can find some time to play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a fantastic day!


  1. A great take on the sketch Lori!!

  2. Super cute layout Lori and I like what you did with the sketch. I have the same problem, picasa seems to help a bit if I do a fast edit in there but not always.
