As part of my year of INSPIRATION, each month I am challenging myself to scrap my Top Five (photos or stories or events) from the previous month. I'm currently a little behind and working on layouts from April.
I found a new sketch challenge site recently and was inspired to use this month's layout sketch as INSPIRATION for my page showcasing photos from my visit to LeAnne's back in April. I just had to record the story of those stubborn rub-ons LeAnne used on one of her layouts!
The sketch from Scrapping Everyday Miracles caught my eye because of the strip of arrow embellishments along the top right of the layout. It also included space for four photos, and, with a few adjustments to the photo sizes, this came together very quickly.
I had additional photos from my visit that I wanted to use, so I created a companion layout using the same background paper.
I freehand cut the banner pieces and used my sewing machine to stitch them together.
Slowly but steadily I'm making progress on my Monthly Top Five! How about you?
