celebration layout

Celebration (3)

Hope you all have enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday week if you are in the US.  We enjoyed two wonderful thanksgiving dinners (luckily they were not on the same days).  Now it’s time to get the house ready for Christmas.  It’s so fun to see all of the holiday lights starting to appear all around town on the houses. 

Today I’d like to share a page kit that I completed last month at the scrapbook retreat.  This kit is from Scrapbook Generation and is the Boy Crazy kit from earlier this year.  The kit comes with everything you need to make this layout (the paper, sketch and a photo of the completed layout).  This is a great way to get some layouts done quickly when you don’t have as much time as you’d like to plan layouts.   This kit has titles & embellishments that say “my boy.”  I decided to use this for a graduation celebration so made a new “celebration” title so that it would work for this event.

Here’s my layout: 

Celebration (15)I love that this sketch incorporates so many photos, especially when the hero image is 5×7!  Getting 8 photos on one layout is great when you have a lot of photos from one setting. 

Here’s the sketch:

I’d like to use this sketch again when I have beautiful pattern paper that I want to make sure get highlighted in the layout.

I love the chevrons in this My Mind’s Eye paper collection.   The bigger yellow pattern is very cool with the multi-colored smaller pattern.

Enjoy your Sunday.  I am trying to finish up some holidays layouts so that I can share them in December.  I’m thinking about “12 days of Christmas” set of posts to count down to Christmas.
