Wow! Can't believe it is August already! where the heck did July go! So the scrappy goals I set for myself last month didn't produce much but I did have fun creating some layouts in July and a couple of cards :) I'm still trying to figure out a crafty schedule with the new job even though it's been a couple of months I still haven't gotten a good solid schedule yet. Sundays and Mondays I try to get crafty, so the rest of the week is a hit and miss. But I try to do something each day related to scrapping it may be a class, a youtube video inspiration, photo editing (I got alot that I need to upload and get printed :). The 1st of the month also provides new inspiration over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog and this month the inspiration is different that what I have been creating with over the last couple of months so a fun kit to pull this week :).
Today I did a layout based on the sketch over at The Memory Nest and what a fun sketch it is! This is my take on the sketch:
The sketch was so out of my norm and so fun :) I found these 2 photos of Brad's boys and that started the whole layout :) I don't do that to often starting with the photos and then creating the layout but for this style sketch it worked out and then I knew the embellishments I was grabbing to use and the papers. I still grabbed some things from my July counterfeit kit Just Chillin'.
A close up of he grid portion of the sketch, I think my arrow is little off :) Zachary looks so much like the Campbell side of the family and Tristan looks like the Bastian side, but they both have Brad's blond hair color when he was young. It's always a good visit when these 2 come over to see us :)
So I tried my hand at bullet style journaling a challenge over at the Scrappin N Chattin yahoo group
I found a couple of quotes to add to two of the corners of the layout :). The photos of this visit was the inspiration for this layout I will also match this up to Whimsical MusingsChallenge #98 - Inspired by visitors
