Hey crafty friends! Welcome back to another project. I decided not to do goals this month as we have such a busy schedule with time away, sports starting, school starting, etc. I just wanted to enjoy being creative when I could during this hectic time. So I present for your viewing pleasure this school photo boy scrapbook layout.
To create this page I started with a sketch created by Lisa from Sketch~N~Scrap. I took her sketch and flipped it upside down so that the photo was on the opposite side for whatever reason it just didn’t look right to me with my nephew “looking” the other way. Instead of using two photos I used one larger one of my nephew’s school photo shoot. It was perfect since I often don’t know what to do with the larger 5×7 photo size. I didn’t have a huge title to use so I used that block for some embellishments, and also gave my sister-in-law a journalling spot to record some of her thoughts from his second grade year.
The product collection is an older echo park called Jack and Jill. There was a boy collection and a girl collection. I still have lots of the boy set left so it’s something I should focus on using up. Isn’t that always what we’re trying to do!?
Okay, I really should get going and get some home things accomplished. I am always focused on cleaning out the house, but even more so now that schooling will be done at home! The less stuff around the less distractions we all will have. Until next time…stay crafty and stay safe.

I really like how you flipped the sketch, looks great! I love the EP Jack & Jill papers, I think I still have bits & pieces of it. Worked perfectly with your pic! Thanks for joining us at Sketch N Scrap!
Thank you so much Stacy. I challenge you to get the last of those bits & pieces from the Jack and Jill collection used up 🙂

Awesome job with the sketch!! I agree when a photo subject is looking one way it is best to flip things at times and this looks amazing! I love your embellishment clusters, torn paper edges and the flipped corner in the top left, such GREAT touches! Thanks for joining us at Sketch N Scrap!
