Smile, Love & Laugh

Thank goodness that I have two adorable girls who love to get their picture taken and thereby provide me with countless cute photos to scrapbook.

I used two of my many pictures to play along with the current sketch challenge over at The Memory Nest.
There is also a twist to this challenge: use paper from more than one manufacturer.

This was definitely a challenge for me - I am very much a one-line-of-paper-per-page kind of girl. I figure everything has been coordinated within a line, why not work with it?

But after rummaging through my stash and trying different papers together, I found something that worked and created this layout:
The background paper is from Echo Park (A Perfect Summer), the patterned papers are from Echo Park (Beautiful Life) and Simple Stories (Vintage Bliss), and just for fun, the die cut is from October Afternoon.
I love how it all came together.
