'You Can Do It'

It's time for another sketch over at Sketchbook365, this time it's a multiple photo one, not my usual thing, but I did use my phone and the photo booth app to record the momentous first 'big girl' bike ride :0) Not the the best photos I grant you (I really need to brush up on using my phone!) but it was an important day in the life of DGD!!

not very much pp but what I did use was some American Crafts Dear Lizzy Enchanted (????) in my stash!

 Ali Edwards stamp, SC stars (will I ever tire of them?!) TA Glam in Grand Tetons and Rocking on Sunshine

Tears because she hated her helmet and couldn't possibly concentrate whilst in soooo much pain! Letters are Prima, SC bike and everything else cut on the Silhouette

journaling has been written on both sides of tag, it was only die to the threat of me going inside that we finally got going!!

here is the sketch, based on Yvonne Yam's layout:

 not exactly the same but you can see where I was coming from! I quite like that you could chop my page in half and have 2 stand alone layouts. I think that represents the sad and the happy sides to big girl bike riding :0)

On another note ScrapFriends have thrown down the gauntlet to share your first scrapbook page. Do you remember the first time????

I share this with you on the understanding that you accept I knew no better!!!LOL oh how my style has changed :0)

I can remember 'creating' this on my dining room table and being delighted with the result!! Although it wouldn't be my choice of style today I can look at it and I have used the original photos so there's no throwing it away!!! Do you know what else? I have glued this page to the one that sits behind it in the album....what's all that about??? LOL

Thanks for popping in today,

  1. Love your Scrap 365 sketch page. Such a fine use of white space. And I love your other page too because of all the memories it conveys

  2. OK...too much I want to say!!! LOVE The zigzag banner....& the stars....& the way you've split the page & also, isn't it sooo much fun seeing them 'do it'....I still remember that buzz myself!!! And go you...multi photos INDEED!!! And LOOK how far you've come....what's era's this? Last century sometime [heehee!] .....but you still have floating elements [a stretch, I know....] with those delicious's REALLY interesting seeing our 'first timers'!!!!!!! Oh, did the rolling eyes but it's a DT for March....baited breath. DOn't hold it!!!!!!!!!

  3. So exciting to look back, you style has changed a lot :)

  4. It may not be your 'usual thing' but you have made a fabulous LO. OH boy you remind me of my first LO it was shocking, matted and layerd 1 photo and a couple of rub-ons!!

  5. Aha, the photo booth app! What a clever way to interpret the line of photos in the sketch. That's perfect.

  6. You definitely don't need much PP to make a beautiful LO! I love it. Love how you switched the placement of buntings too.

  7. Loving this peek at your first layout - and at the other two layouts!! Gorgeous and fun!!!

  8. Fabulous use of the sketch! LOL on how your scrapping style has changed - I think it is a little more refined :) TFS.
