Yesterday I was inspired by this picture that I took of Damon on his 12th birthday… a little over a week ago.
Found this layout on Pinterest that I decided to try.
Here are the supplies I gathered… mostly from Basic Grey’s Life of the Party kit (I love, love, love all things Basic Grey!).
Here are the papers all cut and matted in black… a technique that I’m LOVING lately. It just makes everything POP off the page!
Looking more like the original layout…
And with some embellishments and a date. Voila! Here’s the finished layout.
This one came together in no time at all. Really easy to do when you have a great sketch that works and a kit with already-coordinated papers and embellishments. It’s almost like cheating!
