It's Good to Be Goofy {Creative Scrappers Sketch #232}

It's Sunday, so that means we have a new sketch over at Creative Scrappers! Sadly, it's the last sketch of my term on the design team. These few months have flown by. I just love the Creative Scrappers sketches, and it was great fun working with all the talented ladies over there. I hope to apply again next summer, when I have more scrappy time during my summer break. This week's sketch, by Johanna Rol-Middelbos, is so fun and whimsical:


I made another page for Monica's book. If you know Monica's story, skip ahead. If not, read on. Monica is my best friend's daughter.  Her 23-year-old husband just died in July after a 6-year battle with bone cancer. Monica and James have thousands of photos on their Facebook pages, and I've been grabbing them from there to make Monica a book so she'll remember the many happy memories in their short life together. 



Here are some closeups. I dug out some really old BasicGrey--Skate Shoppe collection--for this page, and it was  the perfect choice for these playful photos and this playful sketch. I originally had a solid piece of that chartreuse paper, but felt it needed a little something extra, so I used a border punch and layered them for some fun texture. I thought those googly eyes would be the perfect thing for my title to add to the playfulness of the page.



After I adhered all my circles, some with pop dots, I felt my page still needed something more, so I added some metal dots and tiny googly eyes and then outlined all my circles with a fine-line pen.


Lots of fantastic pages from the rest of the team--come see! I always love seeing how everyone interprets the sketch. I went pretty literal this week.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and reading about my page!
