{Family Hay Ride} (11/19/16)

Hello again!  I'm back with another layout created using a sketch...shocking I know.  I am really enjoying using sketches.  I find that it saves me a little time when I sit down to scrap.  And since I am usually doing 12 other things at the same time, it also saves my brain a little.  Anyway, this sketch it from Sketch N Scrap #116.  Here is the sketch:
sketch-n-scrap-116I thought this is a cute sketch and great layout design.  But I had scrappers block when I went to actually create my page.  I had a picture in my head of what I wanted to do and not one single idea worked how I wanted it to.  I started to make a video but changed the layout so many times that I just stopped trying to record.  But finally I came up with something and I really like how it turned out.  Here is my layout:
The photo is of my family on a hay ride at the pumpkin patch.  We were having a great time together.  I tried to pull out some of the colors from the photo but also wanted it to pop.  I didn't have any other photos that I wanted to add to this page so I chose to use cut aparts for the 2 little photos on the sketch.  I also chose to eliminate the bottom cluster because I felt that it would be too busy.  Overall I'm really happy how this turned out!
