Baby Love- SOUS

Reveal day at SOUS today and we have a fantastic sketch done by the very talented Nanne! Take a look at this....
Full of so many possibilities! What I decided to do was to rotate the sketch because of the photos that I wanted to use. It ended up looking like this....


 I love that working with sketches gives you some opportunities for creative license. It makes them so versatile and you could really use the same one over again and who would be the wiser? I used some Bella Blvd papers for this layout of Laya and Aaron meeting their new little niece and god-daughter on the day she was born. Parts of this layout came together as a rather comedy of errors that I had to fix because I didn't want to start the layout over again. In the end, I think it turned out kind of cute!

Materials- Patterned Paper- Bella Blvd Baby Girl, Cardstock- Bazzill, Buttons- Pebbles, Metal Embellishments- Making Memories and Pebbles, Twine- The Twinery, Doilies- Dollar Store, Stickers- Bella Blvd Baby Girl, Rub-ons- Making Memories, Punch- Martha Stewart
