Two Sides of Joseph ~ The Scraping Stamper Sketch

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.

This LO has been entered in the following challenges:
Floweret Stamplar Challenge #2 ~ Play/Birthday Party ~ the journalling tells the story - these fun photos were taken at our son's 10th birthday

Thanks for stopping by!
