Presents - Sketch N Scrap #263

Hello, everyone! Happy Thursday to you! I hope your day is off to a good start and that it only gets better!

It's time for the mid-month sketch at Sketch N Scrap today! Here is the sketch that I created:

I had photos in mind when I created this sketch and then wound up not even using those photos, so you may be seeing this sketch again in the near future! Here is what I came up with:

I decided to use a few more photos from Ada's birthday last year for this sketch. This will be the left side page of a double-page spread. I just need to figure out if I want to do a traditional layout to go with it or if I want to make a pocket page for it. I guess that will all depend on which one works best with the photos that I have left. I'm thinking it will be a pocket page because I still have quite a few photos of her opening her presents. All the journaling about her birthday will be added to that layout. 

Here are a couple of close-ups:

I used my Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash kit for December for this layout. Everything came from my kit except the puffy dots. I don't have a ton of embellishments in my kit, so I used one of the papers to fussy cut a few presents out for my embellishments. I am pretty happy with what I have used in my kit so far. After the pocket page, I should have a double-page layout to finish up her birthday and then I can call her 8th birthday scrapped! I'm not sure if I'll get to it before the end of the month but it is definitely at the top of my to-do list.

Be sure to stop by the Sketch N Scrap blog to see how the rest of the design team took on the sketch. I hope you have some time to play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have a great day!
