Ella Friday Sketches #1

You might have noticed the little square on the side of my blog about the Ella Friday Sketches. The sketch for this last week was just so simple and it had so many possibilities so I took this opportunity to try to get some layouts finished. LOVE inspiration in sketches and I have tons of photos just waiting.
I thought this Jenni Bowlin shaped paper was the perfect place to start. LOVE the contrast with this orange colored Vintage Core'dinations cardstock. That brings out the orange in his new shirt. The sketch called for 4" x 6" photos but I wanted mine a little bigger so I printed them out 5" x 7" and cut them down so they are 4 1/2" wide.

These pieces of chipboard are by Maya Road. I left out one of the shapes and covered these two with We R Memory Keepers patterned papers as well as the strip across the layout. I thought these papers furthered the "blowing kisses" in the photo.

This is a Technique Tuesday stamp. Is this something you could use on about every layout or what??? LOVE that it is so easy to add the correct date.

And, my subtitle is added with these tiny Jenni Bowlin circle letter stickers.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
