Let's Scrap Sketches Design Team: Boy Life

Hello my scrappy friends!! Can you believe we are already half way through June? With that being said, it's reveal time at Let's Scrap Sketches! Here is the sketch for June 15:

And here is my take on the sketch:

Instead of a double page spread of two 12 x 12 layouts, I switched it up and did a 12 x 12 layout on the left and a 6 x 12 layout on the right! I love how it turned out!

I dug DEEP into my stash of scrapbooking supplies and photos for this layout. These photos are of my oldest son when he was about 2 years old. He will soon be 16!! Wowzers!! 

My inspiration for this layout came from the sketch of course, but also from this awesome cut file from Paper Issues. They have lots of free cut files and I just adore this one! I cut it on my Silhouette portrait using white cardstock from Michael's and then backed the letters using paper from my stash. I know some of the paper is from Jillibean Soup, but I've had most of it so long that I can't remember where its from!!

I dug out some old felt pieces that I believe are from Fancy Pants from many years ago. That frog is just so adorable and perfect for a fun, outdoor layout. I used lots of the felt stars as well.

For all of the stamping on my layout, I used an October Afternoon  stamp set. 

I used green and blue archival ink that I bought from Michael's to do my stamping. I inked the edges of everything on my  layout using distress ink in the color of tea dye. 

For my journaling area, I stamped a large parenthesis using some brown chalk ink and then outlined it with a brown Zig pen to make it stand out. 

On the right side, there is a little pocket that holds some tags. 

I found a paper in my stash that all the letters of the alphabet and each letter had a corresponding word to describe boys. I cut out the letters that spelled my son's name and stuck them in the pocket. 

I hope this sketch will inspire you to dig deep into your stash of supplies and/or pictures and get your memories documented. Don't forget to link your layout on the Let's Scrap Sketches blog for a chance to win a prize!!
