Hey crafty friends! I’m happy to be back today sharing another layout for Scrap our Stash. If you have followed my blog for a while, or their page, you know that the second challenge of the month is to combine two sketches, but with a twist. For this month I have chosen to create a boy scrapbook page. I’ll admit that I mashed these sketches so much that you probably can’t see either of them in this layout.
I took the shape of the photo from the first sketch and the strip at the top of the page and used a strip on the top of my diagonal pattern. From the second sketch I used the fish tail banner turned sideways and the ink splatters.
A bit about the photo – the young man on the left if our son Michael and the other two boys are two my girlfriend Katie’s seven boys. I have known Katie since I was born, and she was the matron of honor in my wedding. To make it even more special our son and Elliot (young man on the right) were born 11 days apart. Friends from birth…just like us! As another fun fact…The young man in the middle (Colson) and my nephew are almost the exact same age too.
I’m really happy with how it came out, and how our son will have this page of his first friends forever. Can’t wait to see how you blend them together. Make sure to send me a link if you join the challenge! Until next time…stay crafty!
