"You Are Loved From the Start" layout

Happy Monday friends. I have been really excited about scrapbooking again lately. I'm not sure if it's because school is out for me (for six weeks) and I have more time to devote to making pages, or it is because I have been inspired by magazines and You Tube videos recently. Whatever it is, I'm glad that I have the time and "mojo" cause the memories are piling up and I need to turn them into scrapbook pages. 

Today's page is based off of two challenges, a sketch one from Stick It Down challenge blog and a product challenge from Scrap Our Stash

This page is going to be included in Mason's baby album. They are pictures of the family the day after he was born. This was the first time the older kids saw him. I'm running out of pictures to scrapbook for him so I will have to spend sometime culling through our pictures and get them printed. 

For the product challenge I use the following:
P- Project life card (the one used for my title)
A- Arrows
P- Punch (star)
E- Echo park stickers
R- Rhinestones

I got to be honest, I wasn't sure how I can use the sketch for my page since I really wanted to use three pictures instead of the two in the sketch. Thankfully I was able to make it work. I actually really liked the result of the page, which is another reason I always go back to sketches, it stretches me in ways I would have never thought about in the first place.

I used some vellum and scraps of yellow pattern paper to make my starburst design. I just punched them out with a star punch and then layered them on top of each other, overlapping the points of the stars slightly and then adding a staple in the center.

The sketch called for only the bottom right corner to have an accent but I felt that I needed to balance it out so I added a few things on the top left as well.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a fantastic day.

Till next time,
Grace
