pretty little studio february sketch layout


It seems fitting that the last post of my design team term with Pretty Little Studio is with one of Keri Babbitt's fantastic sketches. I loved working with this girl way back in my Sweet Peach Crop Shop days, and it was so much fun being on a team with her again.

Keri's sketches always inspire me to think outside the box, and with this one I made just a few changes to make it my own. I started by flipping the sketch on its side, and then I added an extra layer of embellishment down the left side of the page, moving the photos a bit more toward the center.



I seem to be reaching for kraft bags quite a bit during my scrapping lately- I love the texture and dimension they add, plus they make awesome photo mats. I also tucked a few punched star shapes into the bag's opening, then sprinkled a few more punches and veneer stars diagonally across the page to connect the photos to the title.



Just looking at these photos has me wanting to run again! It's starting to warm up enough outside now for my cold-o-phobic self to start running through the neighborhood soon, and 5K season will be here before I know it!
