Storytime With Grandma - Scrap Our Stash Pick Your Side October Challenge

Hello, hello! Happy Monday to you! I hope your week is off to a good start. 

It's time to share my take on this month's Pick A Side Sketch Challenge at Scrap Our Stash! Here's a look at the sketch that we had to choose from:

Along with picking either the left or right side of the sketch, we are also required to include twine, at least one tag, and one tab on our layout. Here is what I came up with:

I used one of my October Counterfeit Kit add-on kits along with one of the papers in my main kit for this layout. 

I came across these photos of my mom reading a story to Matthew when he was maybe 2 years old. My mom has been gone for 6 years now and I still find it a little hard to scrap photos of her, but it is getting easier. She loved spending time with all of her grandkids and a quiet moment like this one was always her favorite.

I used the left side of the sketch for my layout. I added a tag with twine behind the photo. I left the tag blank for now. I think I will journal just the basics on the tag and then write more detailed journaling on the back of the layout. I also included a tab on the right side of the photos.

Here are a couple of close-ups:

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


  1. Wonderful layout, photo and story! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Really sweet layout. I'm sure those photos are precious to you and your kids. Beautiful take on the sketch challenge. The mix of pattern papers is really nice. I love that little speech bubble on the top photo, cute detail.
