Forgive me for slacking on the posting front! Seems I've been doing a lot of napping during my girls' nap time lately, which is usually when I get crafty and/or update my blog!
I've been creating a scrapbook for my brother, which is just of pictures of his dog, Divitt. Divitt has a cancerous tumor in his back leg and probably won't be around much longer, so my mom thought that it might be special to give my brother a scrapbook for Christmas that has pictures of his beloved dog. I created the first page this past Wednesday, which also happened to be Scrapbooksteals' Midweek Mojo day. I used the sketch to make the first page.
Here is the sketch:
And here is the layout:
Now I am completely aware that this layout is very bland and embellishment-free, but the way I see it...this is a scrapbook for a boy. How elaborate do I really need to get? :) I think he'd be happy if this was just a photo album with pictures...dressing each picture up is just an added bonus. :)
I hope by the time Christmas rolls around, my brother's heart will have healed enough to enjoy this scrapbook.
That's all for now! I'll be back soon with more craftiness!
