Hello, again! I am back with my second post of the day. If you are looking for my Counterfeit Kit Challenge reveal and blog hop, please scroll on down.
Sketch N Scrap has a great new sketch to start off September. Lisa has created a fun one photo sketch, but you could always change it up and add another photo. Here's a look at the sketch:
And here is my layout:
I got the idea for this layout from a Youtube video that I saw recently. The talented Becky Bitting posted a process video a while back for a layout about her granddaughter in her car seat and had titled it "Let's blow this popsicle stand" and I immediately thought of this photo of Ada and I knew I would be using the same title.
Ada used to love to play in her car seat. If I left it on the floor she was constantly crawling into it and just setting and playing. Some mornings she just wasn't ready to get out of it, either. I just love that she has her little toy keys in her hand and it really looks like she is ready to go!
I've used my September Counterfeit Kit that I posted earlier today. These papers were part of my "girly" kit and I thought they would go well with this photo.
Here are a couple of close-ups:
I just love this little rubber popsicle piece! It was a paper clip that I had received in one of my swag bags from Paper Issues back last year - I think. I used my craft knife to cut it off of the paper clip and to use it for an embellishment. Chances are if I had left it as a paper clip I would never have used it.
On my layout I have added three little banner pieces in the lower right hand corner. They were not called for on the sketch but I had a mishap with my date stamp. I thought I could fix it but I wound up making it worse. If I'd just left it alone I would have been all right! I needed some way to cover up my boo-boo, so a few banner pieces did the trick!
Be sure to stop by Sketch N Scrap to see the beautiful layouts from the rest of the design team. I would love to see your take on this sketch, too!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a great day!
