August Blog Hop!


If you did not arrive to my blog from Cassie's Blog please return to Amanda's Blog to follow the hop in order. 

Welcome to the August Blog Hop put on by the wonderful ladies at ClubCK! For this hop we each created a layout based off of a sketch that Amanda created. To be honest, the day that I worked on this I was not very inspired by the sketch. Had I just left it and come back to it another day, I probably would have been much more inspired. Just one of those off days... we all have those, right?! :) 

I took the sketch and made it very simple. I kept the two photos, but made them a little crooked. I used a background paper to ground the photos and then I kept the borders at the bottom. Instead of putting the title on the top, I just added it to the left side. I LOVE the Fancy Pants papers (Its the Little Things) that I used for this LO. I have used them on a lot of LOs and even have recently bought more! 


Sketch:


My layout turned out very plain and simple, but I think it still gets the message across. :) Thanks for hopping along with me!

Your LO is precious! I love how you kept the essence of the sketch but made great use of the white space. Beautiful papers!
Thanks for sharing! :)

Wow! It's simply beautiful! I love how it's mostly black. It just pulls your eye right to the focal photo (even though it's b&w).

I love "plain and simple". I think the black paper gives the LO elegance. Great job!

Love how you set the photos off just a bit, rather than straight! Beautiful photos!

So beautiful Andrea and I love the way you used the sketch!! The pictures are definitely your focal point and I love that you used b&w pics!

I really like the orientation of the pictures and the borders. You've created a wonderful LO! If you didn't say you were having a non-inspirational time, I'd have never known! Thank you.

I love how you made the photos stand out. I think black & white make a perfect background for wedding photos. The little birds on the patterned paper add a perfect touch of whimsy! Lovely layout!

So pretty! Love the black background with those PPs!

Mandi said...

Pretty pae. I love the simplicity of it.
