Friday Focus

Today I'm sharing a scrapbook page that uses the sketch and moodboard from Let's Get Sketchy.


Here's my page:

The moodboard influenced my choice of photograph and the summery sunshiny feel and colours of my layout. I only wanted to use one large photo, it is a favourite from this trip to see my middle son on the Isle of Man, so I added a jumbo word in place of the second photo.

The background paper is actually the B side of a baby boy pack from Photoplay and I chose it for the wonderful colours. I often use the B side of a paper as  I find they have less invasive and in your face patterns.

As this was a special photo and layout I added in a bit of my rapidly diminishing and therefore precious Hambly cameras transparency sheet. And because it really is nearly all gone I chopped the middle bit out that would have been behind the other papers and saved it for another day.

Papers: Photoplay, Hello Baby; Hambly, cameras; scraps from my stash
Words: Shimelle, Box of Crayons; Cocoa Vanilla, Boys Rule
Stickers: Simple Stories Bliss; Shimelle Box of Carayons; SU, ancient sheet from my stash
Embellishments: Washi,: Carpe Diem; MME, wooden shapes; Echo Park A Perfect Winter enamel dots

I'm so delighted to have had your company for a while today, thanks so much for visiting my blog.

And keep crafting!
