Using Sketches and Bella Blvd: Sweet!

On our beach trip this year, the boys would relax every afternoon with a popsicle on the deck. I don't know if it was their favorite part of the day, but it was ours.  They were finally quiet and sitting still for five minutes! After we got home, Cory decided that we needed to stock our fridge with popsicles and they have become a staple now in the house. It's hard to resist a summer treat.


I used Bella Blvd's Sunshine and Happiness collection for this page with a little bit of Baby Boy. The two collections work great together. 

Here's a closeup of the top of the page:


The layout is based on the new August sketch at My Creative Sketches.


This sketch was really fun to use and adapt. I made the title square on the left into a long pennant, clustered the other squares closer together and used a butterfly trail rather than the flower swirl.  You can see all the different ways the design team interpreted the sketch on the blog.  

This sketch is for our monthly challenge, which starts today and runs through Sept. 14.  Add your interpretation to be entered for a great prize. Winners will be announced Sept. 15.  You can find all the details here.
