Sunday Sketch with our Guest Designer Elena

Hi everyone. It's Elena with a sketch and a layout.

I usually use one picture on my layouts but the truth is that narrating a story through a layout is easier if we use two or more photos. And I had those two photos of my daughter playing with her "friends " in bed which were perfect.
I liked the sketch very much and that's why I decided to follow it from the beginning to the end. Two photos with title above and the journaling on the right.
I intended to trim the white space of the photo paper but decided not to, because I  like adding embellishments on my photos but those two were rather small. So I scattered the cork stars-one of my favorite elements of the kit- at the bottom.

Then I added the title  and I loved how the letters and the stars framed the two colorful photos in the middle.
Then there was the journaling. I don't journal often on my pages and this time I didn't have an important story to tell ,except for a cute, happy moment to capture
So instead of writing something I used the CT sets of stamps, the SC Brighton Pier tiny word stickers(pink and gold is one of my favorite color combos these days) and the wood chip arrows describe the feelings. And they did a great job!

To play along this week and for a chance to win $5 to spend at the CTK Store, upload your projects based off of this week's sketch to the CTK Gallery.  You have until September 13th and please include "Sketch 9/7" in the description.
