Today I'm sharing my second layout for the Scrap Much? Design team. This week's sketch is so adorable, much like the faces Max is making in my layout! I think my favorite one is where he got his head stuck in the back seat of the car because he was so grouchy at me!
I started out with some Simple Stories wood grain paper - I love, love, love all the colors in the multi pack I got, with one side colored woodgrain and the other in gingham! I wanted that big circle to be subtle, so I stitched it freehand with my sewing machine a bunch of times. Then I daubed on some white ink and added some sketch heart stamps from one of my favorite stamp sets. I added my layers in using the Echo Park My Little Boy papers.
I made the flowers by layering three to four simple Cricut flower shapes and topping them off with grey enamel gems. I trimmed the cuteness sentiment out of an Echo Park journaling card. I also pulled in some of the Simple Stories gingham in the handcut leaves, banners, and under my Little Yellow Bicycle Burlap title letters. When I was making this layout I accidentally printed our that picture of Max on a full letter sized sheet of paper. I didn't want to use it like that, but I couldn't toss it...so we've been pinning it up all over the house and telling the boys, "Max does not approve!" in silly voices all week, cracking ourselves up.
Here's the awesome sketch - I hope you'll be inspired to share a page over at the Scrap Much? blog too!
