Making Banners with Photo's.

I am a bit behind with Shimelle's 'sketch to scrapbook page' challenges, this one that I finished yesterday was posted on her blog way back in February! I think I might have to skip a few and start up again with her latest challenge which is  'Using triangles in your scrapbooking design' .
You really should check out her blog as there is always something beautiful going on there.

Here is the sketch that Shimelle used for her challenge and I must admit that although I like banners I have never wanted to put one across the whole of my page like this. So it's a real challenge for me.

I only had two photo's that I wanted to work with so used a quote card instead of the third one.
I found it quite difficult to put this page together as I really felt out of my comfort zone. The photo's are of my brothers children a little while after the moved to Vegas and were settling into new schools.

A final close up of the middle cluster of embellishments. If you are a regular visitor to my blog you will know that these are not my regular colour/style of papers and I think that didn't help with my comfort zone either.
I think it may be a little quiet around here for a while as it's the Easter holidays and hubby is off work as well for a fortnight but I hope to get some craftiness done on the sly.

I wish you all a very chocolatey Easter and the diet will start up again next week! 


  1. Kerry this is beautiful...I love the way you changed the sketch to suit your own style...I also love the pretty butterflies.

  2. Very cute layout. I really love your selection of embellishments. I thought this was a tough sketch to follow as well. Happy Easter to you too.

  3. OOOOO Kerry - this is simply beautiful! Kudos!
