... so this is it, the time for my first DT reveal over at Sassy Lil' Sketches!
We have some fab sponsors this month - Expressions Vinyl and Lauretta's Digital Stamps - offering up some fantastic prizes, so please join in for a chance to win!
This is my layout using the sketch.
Photos of Tom taken at Pontins in Prestatyn in 2004. He really enjoyed the swings in the park there, and of course, it is 10 times better when Daddy is in charge of pushing!
I started off with everything being level and straight on the page, as anyone who knows me knows that I don't do wonky! I left the layout, not stuck down, on my desk. It was a bit of a mess on the desk, and I moved something which then moved the pieces on my layout. When I came back and saw the layout slightly off kilter, I thought that actually it looked better, and fitted in with the angles of the photos!
I used BasicGrey's Archaic range throughout - the little dino papers reminded me of Tom's shirt. The cardstock is Bazzill, as is the template I used to do the handstitching. I added a bit of machine stitching as well. And a teeny bit of Stickles. The title is cut out with the Cricut, and I added some Diamond Glaze to give them a shiny look. The border punch I used is from Martha Stewart.
Head over to the blog and see what the rest of the Design Team has been creating!
If you like card sketches too, the SLS team have created a brand new challenge blog - the Sassy Lil' Sketches Card blog - also with a brand new Design Team!
