Sketchy Thursdays {the bus}



It's Thursday! Here is my latest layout for the sketch Heidi made for Sketchy Thursdays. I used items from both the Sept. and Oct. kits from Scrapbook Circle to make my page. 

And if you take a peek at Heidi's sketch, you'll notice that my layout is not tilted. I couldn't do it! Not sure why, but I tried and tried, and I could not make a page where you tilt the photos. Now I feel dared to do it. I must. I feel challenged. LOL!



This week Sketchy Thursdays is sponsored by Let's Capture Our Memories. Check out the site as well as what they have at Sketchy Thursdays!

Thanks for stopping by! I really appreciate it—enjoy the rest of your week!

Love the way you cut the zig zag paper and the way it kinda-sorta blends into the BG yet still adds some color to the layout! I have a tough time w/ tilted layouts too! I always think it looks like I did it on accident, LOL!

if it's any consolation, I can NEVER tilt photos...something about it just sends my brain into a tizzy...I can tilt embellishments but if you ever see me tilt a photo, it's because I was severely pressured to do it! Great layout and loved that you combined 2 kits :)

I've been waiting to see the photos on a layout! I love the chevron vibe and all those layers!

Ursula Schneider said...

this is a really great page! Love all the details and that chevron background is awesome. You should go for the tilt though, it's fun!

I'm giggling at your dilemma with tilting the layout. I had the SAME PROBLEM. I think it's something with my brain that doesn't allow me to do such a thing. I ended up doing it anyhow, but I feel like my page is off or something...

PS. I think your page is adorable regardless. I love Nate's proud little grin :)

Super cute and love how you used the chevron. i am the SAME way about tilting! I can tilt one small photo, but the rest of the design needs to be straight. For some reason when I do too much tilting MY stuff looks messy to me even when someone else's looks fabulous to me.
