Love, Love, Love!

Did you see the new Simple Sketches sketch yesterday?  I'm off this week, but I couldn't help myself, I had to play along!  I loved it the second I saw it!!

I love multi-photo sketches-mostly because I take a ton of photos-but I rarely print photos smaller than 4 X 6.  Because of this, my layouts with many photos end up being double (sometimes more) layouts.  I dug through my photos and found the perfect photos!, however I ended up sending them to my print place using a collage print in order to get 2-3 X 4's.  Luckily, I had some room to spare.  Okay, take a look at what I did:

If this isn't proof that a good sketch leads to a great (in my opinion) page, I don't know what will convince you!

This is where taking tons of photos in a moment worked to my advantage.  Though a couple of these photos look the same, they aren't!  L was feeding Prince oats and trying to sneak in some kisses, and I just sat back and snapped photos.

The rest of the page came together quickly.  I took out my sewing machine and ran my paper around a couple of times.  I can't sew a straight line to save my life so I purposely make it look messy!  The top journal spot I can't take credit for.  Somewhere in blog land I saw the Horseshoe from the set Horse Frontier used as a U.  *Luckily* my letters just fit!  The lower left journal spot I added a doily, heart, and a few buttons.  The image on the right spot is also from that set.  I added a banner using the Fabulous Phrases set.  (I did warn you last week that I love buttons and banners!)  The title is where I got stuck....until I remembered the new Expressions framelits.  I think it worked perfectly for the page!

Now head over and see what this week's team has created for your viewing pleasure!  ...and play along!
