So many sites had fun challenges over the weekend and I played along with both Little Yellow Bicycle and Echo Park Paper. I made a Mother’s Day card for LYB and I'll share that later this week.
First, let’s get to the Echo Park Paper challenge. I played along with challenge #4, which was a sketch challenge posted on the EP blog here. I scrapped a photo of my little boy at 15 months old in his favorite spot, our carport swing. There was a long stretch of time when my little guy used the swing almost daily. He loved it so much. He still uses the swing now, at age 3, but much prefers the park these days.
For this layout, I used primarily This and That - Charming with a little Sunshine mini kit thrown in. I followed the sketch pretty closely, though I did move the pennants under the photo block and used a sun and kite in the original location.
Here’s a closeup of the stitched circles.
And a closeup of the pennants and title block.
And here’s the sketch.
All in all, I have to say: NSD made for a really fun weekend, and I hate to see it end! I hope you had a great weekend too. Did you make anything crafty?
