I used a sketch by Kristy Lee at www.scrapbooksteals.com (Topaz #4) and with a little modification of photo placement, I managed to finish Owen's year at a glance layout!
Here's the sketch...
Here's my take...
I used Crate Paper's Toy Box collection, which I got from my awesome swap buddy in the summer swap box exchange! Super cute collection...I love the old school retro feel of it. Added some AC Thickers and a few brads, buttons and ribbon from my own collection and VOILA! I pretty pleased with how it turned out, even though I feel as though I could have embellished a bit more...however, it was time to step away from this layout...LOL!
What a cute boy!!!
I'm adding this in...because it's just too funny! This is the layout I did for Joely's "Growing Like A Weed" frist year page...totally different sketch...very similar results...lol!
This is Kristy Lee's sketch for MWM #2...from July 2010!!!
And this is where I took it!
