So Silly!

 Happy 1st day of June!
It officially feels like summer break to me and now.
Hopefully we manage to keep are summer relatively low key.
I love having chill time with my kiddos.

Today I'm sharing this fun layout:

Based on a sketch I found on the Freckled Fawn blog
This sketch was so fun! I knew the Emoji would be perfect and I found these fun pics of my son goofing with his friend and knew they were the perfect photos for this layout.

I started with dripping a bit of color onto my background. Then I popped the ephemera with foam adhesives of varying sizes.

I followed the sketch for placement of title and journaling.

And finished up with some fun little details on the side.

Once Upon A Time

Welcome to the end of May.
Can you believe it's almost June? Where did the first half of the year go?
Who knows but I am excited for summer and time with my totally fabulously fun kiddos!
Speaking of, here's a layout about my youngest silly guy:

I used the May Jump Start sketch from The Scrap Room and their May kit.
Love this kit!!

I made a couple small changes to the sketch. Instead of putting my title at the bottom, I put my date and then added a smaller title up at the top of the photo.

There wasn't really a designated spot for journaling on the sketch, but around the layout is always fun and there was plenty of room. So that's what I did.

I finished up with a few of the fun embellishments from the Embellishment add-on and these great Jillibean stars that have been in my stash for a little too long.

Coloring Eggs

Have you been over to the Sketches in Thyme blog this month?
They have some awesome sketches over there with lots of fun samples for you to look at.
And of course a great prize!

Here's the sketch I worked with this month:

And here's what I did with it:

I used the circle pattern on the sketch to inspire the oval eggs shaped decorations on my Easter layout. Then I used washi tape and pen stitching to add some details.

I used a big sticker for the title. It worked perfect in the area that the sketch had the title.
I love it because sometimes those big stickers just don't work where you need a title.

I finished up with some bright dew drops and cute heart stickers.
Don't forget to check out the other sketches for this month on the Sketches In Thyme blog.
