storage for my paper projects...come take a look!

Blue skies...

Who doesn't love them? And spending time with your favorite person under those blue skies? Even better! This layout features one of my favorite photos of Andrew and I, at the Jazz Fest in Detroit last fall. It was actually a really chilly, windy day, but the sky was just so blue! I scrapped (and blogged) that experience here, but today, my focus is on that sweet boy of mine:


Ok, that and these fabulous goodies from Sassafras! This layout just so happens to fit their sketch challenge for June, which you can read about here. Here's the sketch:

I stayed pretty true to the layout, just swapping the title and journalling. I also used some of my favorite patterns from the new Sunshine Broadcast line -- LOVE this line. Simultaneously subtle and colorful, if that's even possible. I also used some older Sass goodies (I have a LOT of them) as accents and such, like the flowers, journal card, even some stamps I've had forever.


The "happy" is one of the few non-Sassafras bits here -- it's actually the first time I broke out these dies from Papertrey Ink. They're a perfect title size.


Also, since all three of the papers I used happen to be from the wee bundle (that's a 6x6 pad, y'all), this layout also qualifies for this month's challenge over at Scrapbooker's Anonymous -- to use three or more 6x6 sheets on a layout. What a smart challenge! I tend to forget that I can use my 6x6 stash on more than just cards. Thanks to my scrappy pal Sue from their design team for the inspiration! If you'd like to see this layout in person, be sure to head over to Scrappy Chic, where it'll be up on the wall someday soon. 

Have a delightful day!

Aw, this is adorable, Ang! What a great tribute to Andrew! I love all the little details, especially the days of the week going around the bingo-ish circle and of course that 'happy' die. ;)
