The last challenge of 2013..


So we all know how much I love a scrapbook challenge with a sketch. So over at http://3scrappyboys.typepad.com/ they are having a challenge using the sketch above. I love sketches and using them as a starting point for layouts.
This layout is using paper from Carta Bella - Homemade with love collection.   I will admit when I first saw this paper I knew instantly I had to have it and wanted to make  a fun layout with my daughter making her first gingerbread 'house' aka train.
This has now become a fun family tradition. She loves making gingerbread houses and stuff.
I used the basics for the sketch but added 3 photos however I used the paper stripes, and then the fun little epoxy stickers. I added a fun little heart paperclip from Webster's pages. I also used my cricut and cut the word Family Tradition from the Teresa Collins - cartridge - Sophisticated.
I will say I love using my home printer to print these "wallet" sized photos. As you can see from the changes I added a few more photos - but still kept a little angle.
The "journaling" is fun little words from My Minds eye.
Hope you enjoy and
Happy Scrappin' 

P.S. Here's to a great new 2014
