Shimelle- can't resist

Shimelle's sketches are becoming addictive- i really didn't intend to make two LOs this week but I have ended up with two!

I started with the photo of the three children, the green spotted paper and the flower paper on this LO- but I just didn't think it worked and I found this title from Crate Paper that I really wanted to use,so I printed out a second photo and put it all on a white cardstock- I think it works!
Its called Pretty Funny but the funny is in tiny type
So I was left with the other large photo and the green spotty paper. this is what I came up with- I flipped the sketch because I needed the children's bodies to be coming out from behind the paper otherwise it looked a bit weird. Its called "real love" because I think the children really look like they love each other in this photo. There's some bits from Echo Park For the Record on here
this is the sketch

scrapbooking sketch and page ideas


  1. Cute layouts! Such great pictures!!!

  2. Oh, these are so beautiful, Karen!! I love the white card stock background with the beautiful floral paper! Loving the button border on the second LO! I love this sketch but have to figure out if I have a good photo for it???

  3. Shimelle does have great sketches, so classic. I love to see several pages based on the same design, each one really does look unique!

  4. I love the photos on these. the one of all the kids is just so fun. =)
