Well, my mom, being the kind soul she is, made the best of the conversation, and I documented it on a layout. I was thrilled when Kelly Goree asked me to make a layout for this month's BasicGrey Newsletter. I just adore BasicGrey, and it gave me the perfect excuse to play with the Oliver collection. I had bought the paper with the monkeys because it was so darn cute--not having any idea how I was going to use it, but this story turned out to be the perfect one to break out those monkeys!
Here's the sketch I got to work with (the sketch was made by Allison Davis):
And here's my layout. Scrapping 8 x 8 poses lots of challenges, especially when there's a lot of journaling I want to include. I tried to stay true to the sketch, but my lengthy journaling made it necessary to make a few adjustments. I love the colors in the Oliver line, and did I mention, I adore those whimsical monkeys?
I hope you'll take a peek at the BasicGrey Newsletter to see the awesome layouts Kelly Goree, Allison Davis, and Lady Grace Belarmino made with this sketch.
