Imaginisce's March Sketch

Hi there Scrappers! The March sketch was posted over at Imaginisce today. The fabulously talented Erin Bassett created this clean sketch with three square photos, perfectly placed embellishment clusters, and plenty of white space. LOVE it.

Scooting Along: For my layout, I scrapped some photos of my toddler scooting around on his new tricycle. He loves to peddle up and down the driveway. He's a joy to watch.



Good thing the sketch didn't require much patterned paper because I've just about used up all my Scooter's Vacation. It has been sooooo easy to use with all the boy photos I take. To create my background paper, I used the scooter stamp and some dark brown Staz-on ink and then colored in all the little hearts with a red Zig marker. I really like this neutral background.

Thanks for popping in. Be sure to head over to Imaginisce and see the sketch. And maybe you can even play along. There's always a great prize to be had at Imaginisce.

I'd also like to thank my friend Julie Bonner for this sweet blog award.


I'd like to pass it along to six of my NEW bloggy friends who've been adding sunshine to my blog lately! Thanks ladies.

1. Kayla, aka Mustangkayla

3. Jennifer S
