The Memory Nest - Make It Monday Challenge #57

Hey! I'm here today to show you how I used the sketch from The Memory Nest's new Make It Monday challenge.

I love including some right now or currently pages in each of my yearly albums and decided for today's sketch I'd focus on the youngest of my grandsons.

I rifled through my stash and found these bright scraps as well as a whole 12x12 sheet in blue - they've all been lurking there so long I no longer know the make.

I used the sketch to build the basics, then left it on my desk overnight and added some extra label stickers, the arrow and the word the next morning. I often do this when crafting and find distancing myself for a while helps to clarify my thoughts about how to progress or sometimes to just leave a project as it is.

I used the second photo spot from the sketch for some boxes which I created digitally before handwriting the journalling.

Papers: large sheet & scraps from my stash
Alphas: Freckled Fawn, Puffy Alphabet Stickers
Stickers: Simple Stories, So Rad; Lilybee Designs, Labels

I'm thinkng this sketch worked really well for this theme and - here's a little heads up - my page for the next Make It Monday will be featuring my other two grandsons as the sketch really insisted that I use two photos.

Thanks for looking at my blog today. Maybe you'll be inspired to make scrapbook page or card using this sketch - really hope so. Go check out the rest of the DT projects here and then get crafting!
