Inspired Blueprints Guest Designer

Hi everyone!  A few weeks ago I was asked by the super sweet Jennifer Yates to be a guest designer for Inspired Blueprints.  If you haven't heard about Inspired Blueprints you should really check it out.  It is a blog full of inspiring sketches and layouts from a group of very talented ladies.  I was asked to create a layout based on this week's sketch (Sketch 65).  Here's a look at the sketch ...


And here is my take on the sketch using the fabulous February kit (Who's Who) from Studio Calico ...


You can see that I took a bit of creative liberty when creating my layout and replaced the doily background with a smattering of stitched hearts.  This photo of my youngest Brandon just melts my heart.  I loved the soft colors in the Who's Who kit from Studio Calico and I especially loved the fun background paper that is a Studio Calico exclusive.


I love to stitch hearts like this on my layouts.  I do it often.  And will keep doing it.  It is such a fun way to add some detail and dimension and, well, it just makes me happy.


On the sketch there is a smaller photo off to the lower left of the focal photos.  I decided to use one of the KI Memories pockets to hold a smaller print of Brandon.  It was also a great place for me to add a few lines of journaling and a few smaller details as well.  To see what the Inspired Blueprints design team did with this sketch head on over to the Inspired Blueprints blog to check it out.  Thanks for stopping by!
