August BAP

Anam has created a GORGEOUS multi-photo, sketch for us this month at PRIMA BAP!

The background includes lots of paper layering...along with space for three photos, a large title and a fabulous, swirled embellishment area!

For my take, I turned the design, making it the 3 photos on top instead of putting it on the sides.

Thanks for looking!

Sketchy Thursday - August 6-12

Another Sketchy Thursday From Diana

I wasn't able to join in the fun for a couple of weeks, because I'd been very busy with lots of things but I'm back on my feet again. So for this week's sketch is this:

and for my take: ( the fastest layout I ever did. 10 minutes for the record! )

Materials used: Patterned Paper ( DCWV ) * Paper Journal ( Making Memories ) * Pen ( Staedtler triplus fineliner ) * Adhesive ( Xpress-IT) * Misc. Title Sticker, Ribbons

Journal on the LO : Since we got our " Friends of the Zoo" membership card we always go there as our family bonding day. I guess this particular visit is my favorite. We were able to see almost everything, even experiencing Kangaroos up-close. We rested a bit somewhere while snacking with oreos. These photos are testaments of that unforgettable moment. As a bonus, Hans didn't throw tantrums not even once.
