This is the sketch we used to make all our layouts:
And here is what I came up with:
I had a lot of fun making this one! I followed the sketch but widened some of the papers to accommodate my photos. Because I had more pictures than the sketch, I cropped them down to make them fit. I liked the movement of the swirls on the sketch but wanted to make it fit my theme, so I made a bike frame and tire and then added stickers behind to show movement.
I added several extra embellishments to help fill some of the blank space at the bottom. I also decided to leave off the stitching around the edges because I thought it might be a little to much with everything else.
|I ended up with 2 larger title areas because I really liked the "wheels" title but it wouldn't fit on the left page.|
The question I ask you is: "Why do you scrapbook?"
For me I first started scrapbooking as a hobby for me. It is now 97% for my kids, 2% for others and 1% for me. I love being able to leave something for my babies to have when they get older or even now when they want to remind themselves how much we love them. It is a way for me to remember those sweet moments I may otherwise forget, it helps me relax, and is a great way to spend time with friends. I truly don't know what I would do without this creative outlet. Luckily for me, my boys are quite the little artists themselves and love to "create" with me. I love seeing the pride they take in their work and being able to see them grow in other ways than just the physical aspect of life.
