Mother Layout

Let me start off with this is one of my all time favorite pictures of my mom and I. I knew as soon as I saw it that it was going to be an 8x10 so I sent it to cvs along with some other childhood photos and it was the first layout I did yesterday at my Former boss lady and one of my favorite creative lady's house. I kept looking at it and knew something was missing that I didn't have with me so I put it aside and moved on to another layout. Then I this morning I went to Morethenjustscrapbooking.com and saw that they had a sketch challenge for this month that looked really close to my already partly done layout. So I put the sketch into paint and flipped a couple times to get something closer to my layout then added some key elements (the swirl from Tim Holtz after being inked and the flower and button from Prima Marketing). I pretty please with the final product!! Enjoy below are the original Sketch and the one I got from playing around.

Papers from Adorn It
Flowers from Prima Marketing
Button from my Button Jar
Ink from Color box
Grunge Board from Tim Holtz Pin It Now!
