Good morning! Today I'm sharing a layout for SOUS done with Nanne's first sketch for April! I did this one to document Renee's new found passion....her love of dance. She started in the Fall of 2013 and is going strong  today. Her first recital was very exciting for us!

I recently started using a little money saving technique that I'd like to share with you. Scrap supplies can get very expensive as we all know, but I found myself going broke with adhesives, especially when you have sketches with lots of yummy layers to them. What I have started doing is arranging all my background papers and then stapling them on.  The whole background is held together with 4 staples and then I used adhesives to attach the photo. Usually I use pop dots as I like to  put embellishments poking out from beneath the picture. Plus it keeps the photo away from the staples as I'm not sure they are acid free. Doing this one little thing has saved me so much money.

Please pop on by the SOUS blog where designers are sharing their take on the sketch daily! If you try the sketch, link it up on the side bar!

Materials- Little Yellow Bicycle Patterned Paper ( Just Because), Burlap Alphas, Clear Cuts-Shapes, Ten Things Pocket Stickers, Journaling Cards, Doily- Dollar Store, Cardstock- Bazzill
