SOUS # 4

Here is sketch # 4 over at www.stuckonusketches.blogspot.com



And here is my interpretation of it....


I have used SEI 'Alpine Frost' papers....


The title was cut on Cricut from the Storybook cart at 1 1/2 inches....


The tab inserts from Graphically Speaking at 5 1/4 inches, with two of the smaller tabs reduced in width on Design Studio....




The layout without the tabs in situ....




Was able to get an extra 7 photographs onto the layout and quite a bit of journaling...





The story of 'Santa Street' - click on the picture to enlarge it to read....



I actually found this quite a hard sketch to work from - the papers nearly did the page themselves in the end. All I changed was the positioning of the photograph, because of the direction DGD #1 is facing - didn't want her looking out of the layout....




These photo's were taken Christmas Eve 2008 - the photo's are not the best, I have no delusions that because I scrap I am suddenly a great photographer....

The lights are way more brilliant than these photo's give justice to - the street is absolutely amazing - maybe one day I will venture into the world of the SLR....

So, on December 24th 2009, we will be off to Santa Street again - maybe this years photo's will do the decorations and lights justice, but somehow I think not....

Watch this space....




'Til next time....

Thanks for dropping by and all the lovely comments I love reading....

Wow, Jane, this is simply wonderful what you've done with those tags... and made them so useful. I found them daunting as you may remember and changed them to objects. Thanks for such a great idea .. more photos and more journaling!
