I just realized that this is the last sketch reveal for April..wow, how fast time flies !
We chose a semi simple, but yet elegant sketch to celebrate the end of April.. I loved it and was able to once again, add my own twist to the sketch.. The butterflies inspired me so much, that I wanted to add flowers !!..LOL yea, what else is new right?..LOL
so, here is my take on our sketch:
I wanted to keep the background colors real simple with greys and light browns and then the color actually coming from the flowers and butterflies.. Thought that they would stick out a bit more.. I absolutely love how this layout came out..
The photos are of my daughter Amber and her doggy Tudor.. These pics were taken last summer at her boyfriends summer cabin, they were out boating and then fishing.. She no longer has Tudor because she realized that she didn't have enough time for him and now he is owned by a young couple with two small children that have lots of time for him.. They loved him the minute they seen him.. He is a real sweetheart!!
here is the sketch that I used to create this layout:
I made a journaling tag instead of just writing directly on the layout.. this way I was able to print out the text with my computer instead of my own handwriting..LOL
