Sketch-A-Day and UYS

Here's a couple of layouts I created for the Sketch-A-Day Club and the Use Your Stash blog. This first layout is of Kyle ripping and playing with his niece and nephew. He was trying to tire them out but I think they tired him out instead. He was hot sweaty and out of breath but Katie and Jackson were still bursting with energy.

The pattern papers are Anna Griffin and I had to hand cut the large arrow. I flipped the paper over and used a ruler and pencil to sketch it out and used an exacto knife to cut it out. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Deets: Cardstock: The Paper Co. Pattern Paper: Anna Griffin. Letter Stickers: Doodlebug Designs. Other products used: Quickutz and buttons.

The second layout is of my beautiful boy, Tommy. He turned a big 10 years old this year. I thought the title was fitting because bless his empty tummy, he is always hungry.

Deets: Cardstock: Stampin' Up and Coredinations. Pattern Papers: Martha Stewart. Buttons: Bazzill. Eyelet: Making Memories. Other products used: Quickutz, Fiskars border punches, Sizzix die and Stampin' Up punch.

TFL.

Jan what great layouts you captured the playfulness of the photos . That paper does not look like Anna's style but they are very cute.
