Only I Can Be Me

Another fantastic Friday at SOUS where we have a wonderful sketch done by Sandi Clarkson! I just loved the fun nature of this sketch and it was really great to work with! Be sure to stop by the blog and check out what the other designers have created! You're sure to be amazed at all the different interpretations! If you decide to give it a try yourself, you may be featured as one of the Top 3 and have your layout showcased on the blog!


 If you're like me, you work on several different albums at once. I think at present I have about 8 on the go! I do some for me and some for others, so often I use similar photos and scrap the same events. There are times when I just want to do something really quickly with no fuss or bother and I decided that this sketch lent itself well to that and for what I had in mind! I find it really great to take a really busy, patterned paper like the one I used here as a background for your layout. You don't really have to add much to it to get a really colorful and cute layout. This one didn't take me much time at all and sometimes that's just what I need if I ever have a hope of catching up on what I'm doing! LOL!


This layout is going into one of the girls albums that I'm doing them for Christmas. Renee had a PJ themed birthday party this year and her sisters got right into the spirit of things and dressed up to help at the party! It was cute that they wore their matching PJ's! Funny how they always complained growing up when I dressed them in similar outfits! HMMMM!

Materials- Patterned Paper- Bo Bunny Alora, Stickers- Bo Bunny Alora Combo Stickers and Carstock Stickers, Buttons- Dollar Store, Rub ons- from my stash, Metal Clip- From my stash
