It seems we are honoring the men in our lives this month over at SKETCHES4ALL and Scrap Our Stash. Since Mr. J doesn't like having his picture taken I decided to create a layout of our one and only son, Kyle.
This is the sketch I had to work with. It's by Kristine Davidson at My Scraps and More.
And here is my take on it.
I loved the sketch and I love the black and white photo of Kyle but for some reason this layout just didn't come together for me the way I wanted it to. It laid on my scrap table for several days and I added to it, took away from it, until I finally said enough is enough. I glued everything down and called it DONE! It's definitely not one of my favorite layouts but I will put in the album and try to forget about it for now.
I'm also linking this up with Use It Tuesday Challenge #56 - Anything Goes.
Lasting Memories LM #143 - Opposites Attract.
And don't forget about the big Birthday Bash and CT Call going on at Cookin' Up Creations this month. Stop by the forum to see if it's a good fit for ya and if you like what you see, register. You can find all the details about the CT Call in the post below. Layouts do not have to be new for this call but do need to be recent.
Thanks for looking.
