There is a challenge going on over at The Memory Nest that I am very excited to participate in. A Color and Sketch Challenge. Double the challenge, double the fun, right? Here is the layout that I created.
The paper I used for this layout is from Lily Bee Design. I was very excited when I found it at the store because it fit the colors of this challenge and it coordinated with my photos. I do think it was meant to be.

I cut these circular pinwheels from one of my patterned papers and tucked them in along the top of my page just like the sketch.
But because I used two photos rather than one, I needed to shift the position of my journalling and title from what was shown on the sketch. No big deal though, sketches are a great source of inspiration and don't need to be followed exactly.
I want to say thank you to my husband for taking these fantastic photos of our girls in their matching summer dresses. I just love when they are dressed the same and I am going to do that as long as I possibly can, complete with a photo shoot each time. It is just too precious not to document - minimum 100 photos required.

Be sure to stop by The Memory Nest to see what the Chickadees Summer Design Team has created for this challenge. Inspiration guaranteed.
