Hi you all I did this layout over the past weekend but this is the first I had a chance to sit and do the actual post. I belong to a group on facebook called ScrappersChallenges and each month the challenges are a different theme this month it is ABC and each day she posts a letter to use for the title and some suggestions. I've got a bit of catching up to do but I did want to do this one for the letter B and the photos have been sitting for a while so I'm glad that she did this month, for the challenges cause I finally got it on a scrapbook page. This is from the 1st Easter Egg hunt we did with the grandkids, at the end of the hunt and all the games were played, we gave each of the kids a bottle of bubbles and this is what took place:
When I created the layout I was working with 2 challenges to create it: the sketch came from The Memory Nest: I used the Make it Monday 26

and I also used the challenge at Scrap Our Stash Challenge Challenge #19 Bingo. I used the 4th row down/across: Polka Dot Paper, Polaroid, Wood Veeners, Sequins, Stickers. Everything came from my current conterfeit kit:
I used blue polka dot paper from the Simple Stories Harvest Lane collection for one of the back ground papers, Polaroid cameo cut with and arrow cut out of it, wood veneer arrow, scattered sequins and 2 stickers from one of the paper kits: special moments and the green heart.
 I added one extra picture in the spot of the journaling in the sketch and shifted the title over to the side of the layout.
 The Polaroid cut framing a special picture of Aunt Andrea teaching Zachary how to blow bubbles. Scattered sequins around the frame like confetti :) (2nd challenge over at Counterfeit Kit challenge blog this month)
 The 2 stickers and a fun cut from the Silhouette store that included the bubbles and the bubble wand that I added glossy accents to for dimension. The picture of Zachary chasing the bubbles and thought that the die cut bubbles was perfect for that,plus it draws your eye to the stickers.
A special picture of Zachary trying to blow the bubbles and the cute wand with another silhouette cut for the title. All the die cuts were cut with my cameo. Journaling with a file folder type edge cutout. I really enjoy the way this layout turned out so glad that this was one of the sketches this month cause I really enjoyed using it.
Have a fantastic weekend :)
