Once Upon a Sketch

I have been meaning to play along with this sketch challenge site for a while, the sketches are just gorgoeus! I finally got around to it, when I saw this fortnights sketch:

Just perfect for a photo that I have had kitted up with some papers for a little while, but unsure of how I wanted to scrap it, till this sketch caught my eye. The design was perfect for me to try out a technique I have seen around of rolling the paper to make the circle. (Please excuse that poor explanation, I have quite the head cold at the moment and the brain is a bit foggy).

Anyway here is my layout, using another older photo of Zane when he was only 11 months old. I am very grateful I documented facts about him regularly so I could just go to his baby book and see what he was doing at this age, funny how you forget so many little details - like the biting!

The journalling reads: Zane at 11 months, you are babbling all the time. You pull yourself up onto everything and can stand for a few seconds. You have grown your 5th tooth and are testing them out by biting. Ouch!

Just managed to get it done on time too, today is the last day before a new sketch is uploaded tomorrow!



  1. Love how you've created the circular element on your page Fiona! Looks Fabulous!

  2. Looks how you curled the edges! Love the colours too. Thanks for sharing at OUAS!

  3. This is really cute The rolling edges worked out real well, the papers are nice bright and funky and match so well with the pic Tx

  4. Gorgeous layout Fiona! Love the cute pic and the colours are perfect! :)

  6. So cute Fiona, love the bright colours and the rolled circle :)
