New Grandchild - New Layout

Another layout from 2011 complete! LOL, I'm a bit behind, but catching up. This layout is of DD and meeting her Grandpa & Grandma Dragoo for the first time. I love how this one turned out.



For the left side I used the sketch from Scrap Africa - Sketch No. 19.  I used a multitude of sprays behind the main photos. I am never comfortable with sprays, they are just too much of an unknown, lol. Here is the sketch:





I also played along with About A Girl - July 1st challenge to use the word "New". I titled this layout "New Grandchild".

For the right side, I used a sketch from Page Maps and their Cocoa Daisy sketch contest. 


I thought this sketch was perfect for the leaves of fall.  I also played along with Southern Girls Challenge - use leaves. I thought this was the perfect challenge to pull out these old fall photos and get them scrapped.

Here are a couple of close-up photos:



Materials Used: paper - Little Yellow Bicycle, MME and Unknown; chipboard - Heidi Swapp; stamps - CTMH; ink - CTMH, Maya Road & Mister Huey's; 3D stickers - Jolee's; buttons - unknown.

Thanks for visiting!

I love how you made your two page spread flow so nicely by carrying over the half circle from the first page. Great idea and it looks perfect with the Page Map sketch too.
