Lagoon

December has made a sudden appearance and I’m still left wondering where this year has gone! I mentioned yesterday that I’ve been scrapbooking more this past week and have a few layouts to share today that remind me of warmer weather! :)

I used the sketch challenge from Stuck On Us Sketches which was based on a PageMaps sketch for my starting point.

The first two pages will be the beginning when I add them to Brady’s book so I wanted to keep that same order even though it’s the last page that is for the sketch challenge. ;)

The pages and embellishments are from an older MME collection Breaking Free (definitely using up some older product that I’ve been saving for these pics!) and it all worked out so well with these pics of the kids at Lagoon, our local amusement park.

For this first page the stars and the big top/coaster are rub-ons that I added to the page and then layered the other embellishments on.

Similar with this page, the circles are a rub-on with more pieces added from the collection.

This is the page that was done with the sketch (below) in mind. The journaling is about how this was the first year that Brady was finally tall enough (and brave enough!) to ride the big coasters. We actually rode his favorite coaster Colossus (in the first page) four or five times because he loved it so much.

This sketch was really fun to work with and really gave me that inspiration to get going on this group of photos!
