A busy week for me blogwise, think this is the fifth day in a row that I've posted. Today it's back to scrapbooking and I've used the last February sketch from Let's Get Sketchy.
And I decided to use it for a milestone page about my gorgeous new grandson.
I love the new Simple Stories I AM collection and thought it was just so appropriate to my theme. The colours from the photo and the background paper were the influence for my colours.
I stuck pretty close to the sketch and used two of the medium circles for journalling repeating 'I am' at the beginning of each statement. I inked the edges of these two circles to give them more definition.
The star near the photo spot on the sketch became a heart and I stamped the date above the small rectangle at the bottom left of the page. I forgot to change the year to 2015 so the candi dot is there to hide my mistake.
