Here is a layout of Joseph at his tenth birthday party. Even then his funny and serious sides were evident!
I created this layout for a sketch designed by the talented Shannon White ~ The Scrapping Stamper.
If you like this sketch, head on over to The Scrapping Stamper to see the other wonderful layouts created by her design team.
I wanted to include some journaling, and since the sketch did not include a journal block, I elected to journal around the photos.
I don't normally doodle but did some around the photo mat and corner to go along with the feel for each photo.
To add a bit of texture I stitched around the edge of the inner paper layer and applied tinted texture paste over plastic canvas along the bottom of the layout to get the grungy grid effect.
I used some older papers and rub-ons from my stash.
