Two Page Week @ Sketch Support

I prefer to scrapbook two page layouts. It is a wonderful way to scrapbook more pictures and be able to cover a day or an event with just two pages. I get a lot more scrapbooked this way.

When I saw the sketch this week I was so excited! Love it! Make sure to visit Sketch Support and see all the wonderful ways the Creative Team has used this sketch. I know that I'm inspired!

I was hoping to get this assignment done before leaving town (over a week ago) but something important came up and I put off finishing it. I actually didn't finish it till last Sunday night. I had to take pictures at night so they don't look too great on the Sketch Support site, but once I got back home I took better pictures to post here.

"Soak Up the Sun"
Supply List - Patterned Paper: Echo Park, Fancy Pants Designs, American Crafts; Die Cut Sun: Little Yellow Bicycle; Letter Stickers: American Crafts; Ink: ColorBox Chalk Ink, Inkadinkado; Floss: DMC; Pop Dots: EK Success; Other: White Cardstock

Variation 1 - I added an extra line of waves since they were all about the same height.

Variation 2 - I loved the idea of the sun on the layout and thought this would be the perfect page for the die cut sun I've had in my stash for a year. I love how it turned out.

Variation 3 - I was short on pictures so decided to dedicate one of the spaces for a 3x3 photo into a place to write my journaling.

Variation 4 - I decided to add clouds to the right side of my sketch. I really struggled with what to put there instead of the big waves.

Variation 5 - I added more fish. They were just too fun and couldn't help but add a couple more.

Very nice layout! I like the clouds on the right side and how they're stitched nicely. Good job!
