"Gender Reveal" layout

Hello my crafty friends. Happy 'hump' day. Today I'm sharing a page inspired by one of the latest sketches over at the Sketch N Scrap blog. 

I liked the banner strips on the sketch, It was the perfect accent to use some of my scrap papers. I have been busy working on my third child's baby album. So you might be seeing lots of baby themed pages in my blog for the next few posts. *wink*

I had put together a kit a while back before I started on my baby album. I'm almost out of a lot of items so I used two different letters for my title. In my publishing days, I would not have done this, but since I'm now scrapbooking solely on preserving memories for my family, I went with it. Something about the "hodge podge" look of the letters is kinda cool and refreshing in my eyes.

I decided to add the pen stitched circle accents a little higher on my page (versus on the sketch) to accommodate my larger photos. I also made the third photo (on the far right) overlap with the other two, again because my pictures were larger in size.

I added some stickers and the 'boy' accent is a cut out from paper.

I added some pen lines and then handwritten my journaling. I actually video taped my children during this "gender reveal" event and I plan to burn that on a CD and then add it to the back of this page for a memorabilia.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Till next time,
Grace
