Hello Handsome - Sketch N Scrap September Monthly Challenge #1

Hello, everyone and Happy Saturday to you! Are you glad it's the weekend? I know I sure am! My only plan for today is to scrap and then tomorrow all the kids will be here for football and I can't wait! We are all Raiders fans living in Chiefs country so when they play each other we all have to get together to cheer on our team! Here's hoping for a good game!

Today the first challenge of the month has been posted in Sketch N Scrap's Monthly Challenge Facebook group. You can join us by going here. I am hosting the first challenge but you'll have to go to the group to see which sketch I picked and what the optional twist is!

Here is the layout that I created for it:

Back in August, I was going through some older photos of the kids that I have never scrapped and I pulled out a bunch to work on. These photos of Shane just a couple a weeks before his second birthday were on the top of the pile! I had actually written on the back of the photo that he had just gotten his hair cut and the date - something I have not done nearly enough!  It was so nice to have the actual date and the reason for the photo instead of just guessing.

Everything on this layout came from my September Counterfeit Kit and I even managed to do a bit of stamping on it. Here are a few close-ups:

I fussy cut all of the ticket pieces from one of the patterned papers that I included in my kit. 

For my title I stamped the 'hello' and fussy cut around it and popped it up with some foam tape. I then die cut the letters for 'handsome'. I love the mix of the stamping with the die cut letters.

I love how this layout turned out. Of course, when you have such a cute subject to scrap it makes it easy to love the end result!

Be sure to join us in Sketch's N Scrap Monthly Challenges group for a lot of scrappy fun this month!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a great day!
