Today I am sharing my take on the August Blend - A - Sketch challenge at Scrap Our Stash. Along with blending the sketches, you are to use arrows on your layout. Here is a look at the sketches:
I chose to use the background of the second sketch and the photo block from the first sketch.
For my layout, I have used the Simple Stories - Sunshine & Happiness - collection. The fun, bright colors in this collection were perfect for these summertime photos of Ada. I added an arrow that I fussy cut from one of the papers under the title and pointed it to the photos. I tried to add a couple more arrows, but they just didn't fit for what I wanted.
Here is a close-up of the embellishment cluster below the photos:
I changed things up a bit and added the date to the top of the layout instead of at the bottom where I normally add it. It looked a little lonely, so I added a die cut flower beside it. I then added a flower to each of the clusters.
I think Ada just looks too cute with her hair pulled up on the top of her head. She was sitting out on the patio, waiting patiently for Pops to come out so they could jump in the pool. It may look like it's the same photo, but there is a slight difference - she has a hint of a smile in one of them! After I took the photos I just couldn't believe what a big girl she is becoming!
