See the sketch here.
This was a challenge for me because I don't often do two page layouts! It's such a fun sketch, though. I was inspired to scrap some older pics of my kids that were taken by my cousin's husband Isaac Hernandez. The kids were wearing his old hat, and he just snapped these shots in our back yard. They are some of my favorites! I only had enough photos to fill up some of the spots for photos, so I used pieces of the glittered paper from my kit in the other spaces.
The layout was different for me, also, because I don't usually do this type of monochromatic color scheme. I think it's growing on me!
Next stop on the hop is Meridy's blog. I'm sure she has something amazing to show you! Thanks for playing along this month. I hope to see you here again next month!
