So I saw a few months back on FB that DCWV has a monthly challenge. This month I figured why not I love the sketch and knew instantly what photos I wanted to use for the sketch. The good thing about a sketch is it can help you get your juices flowing. I love the "banners" now they are so in and loving making them.
When I was looking over my packs of DCWV paper I'm Hording - I didn't have anything that went with this photo. So OFF to the store I went. Yes I went out and bought paper just for this layout. I will say though I have now made 2 other layouts using this same paper. I love it. The bright colors, the pretty patterns. LOVE IT.
I used a couple of stacks for this layout. The base is from Harvest Gatherings, the blue is from a Christmas stack kit that I bought a long time ago. The rest is from Cirtus. I love love love the colors of that stack.
I followed the sketch pretty much but did change a few things around. I flipped my photo layouts, and changed the top banner tags. I also didn't like that I didn't leave enough space for a journalling tag at the bottom so I changed it and journalled around the layout.
I inked the edges of the layout for additional dimension.
I will say one of the favorite about DCWV is that it cuts so nicely in the Cricut machine. I made a few little flowers from Forever Young cartridge.
Hope you enjoy it and
