went up today. Here is the layout that I made for this week
The journaling reads: It was a gray and chilly morning on this particular trip to the beach. Nathan and I wanted nothing to do with building sandcastles, it was too cold! We decided to stay on the picnic blanket and wrap ourselves in the beach towels to stay nice and cozy. September 5, 2010
The photos for this layout are a bit dark. It really was quite gray and overcast that day at the beach. To contrast the grayness of the photos I wanted to use papers that were bright and colorful. These beach themed papers from October Afternoon were a perfect fit and I especially love the yellow background sheet.
Visit The Daily Trumpet to see the sketch that inspired the layout.
This week fellow Ella Friend Monika Wright also joined me in the challenge and made a layout based off the sketch. A little more about Monika, she is a mom of 3 and married to Mr. wRight, as she calls him. =) Although she's only been scrapbooking a few years, she began crafting with her Mom and brother at an early age, creating ornaments and handmade gifts for family and continues that same tradition with her own kids. You can find fun art projects, altered art, scrapbooking layouts, mini albums, tutorials, free downloads and lots more on her blog, i love it all with monika wright. She also creates art prints and mini albums for sale, like this subway art print here
and is happy to create custom prints and albums, all of which are available in her Etsy shop, iloveitall.
Monika is generously offering a 15% discount to iloveitall on Etsy with the coupon code ILOVEITALl.
Finally, in case you missed out on the first sketch for April you can see it and read more about the series here. Remember, there will be two sketches posted each month. So stop by The Daily Trumpet every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month from now through September to see a brand new sketch and layouts created by me and the Ella Friends using the sketches.
I do hope you will join in the fun. I can't wait to see your layouts! =)
