{Hello Weekend} (11/20/16)

Hello again!  I am back with a layout for the Creative Scrappers 300th sketch!  Congratulations goes out to all of the talent (especially Kristine Davidson)  that brings us these sketches and the wonderful inspiration layouts!  Here is the sketch:

img_3557img_3555img_3556I chose to do a fall layout.  The photo is my children sitting with their pumpkins as we waited for the wagon to come pick us up from the pumpkin patch.  I love the photo and wanted to highlight it.  I also fell in love with the background paper.  It is from a Recollections pack from Michaels.  I think it is gorgeous!  So those two elements were what I ended up basing my layout on.  I chose to do a smaller grid with different sized squares to allow for more of the background to show.  My only regret is that I wish I would have layered the squares a little more.  But I really love how this turned out.
Here is a list of products I used:
  • Background: Recollections Boho
  • all of the cards: We R Memory Keepers Love Notes
  • vellum: The Paper Studio
  • Wood veneer stars, people, and hello: Studio Calico
  • Weekend wood veneer: Scraptastic
  • felt border: Freckled Fawn
  • letters and stars foam: Dear Lizzy Cordial Thickers
Thanks for visiting!  I will be back with another layout soon!
