I have been crafting today. I was only able to get one layout completed, but I made 3 cards too. So that wasn't too bad.
To create my layout I followed a Julie Bonner sketch. To make my photo choice work, I rotated the sketch 90º.
The colors and elements on the page were selected to follow this week's challenge at The Paper Variety. The challenge is a spring Tic-Tac-Toe. You are to select 3 elements in a row. I chose my elements in a diagonal - 2+ flowers, spring colors and scallops.
The scallops are on the sides of the ovals I cut for the photo mat. I used Basic Grey's Olivia collection for this layout. I love the papers. The colors are so cool for girl pages.
I am entering this layout into this week's Sketches In Thyme challenge. They are having an Open Sketch Challenge this week where you can create a layout based on any sketch. In addition I am going to enter this into the Wee Memories challenge, it Anything Goes....
Thanks for looking. Hope everyone is having a wonderfully crafty weekend.
