I Can Let You Grow Layout

I wanted to share my submission with you for the Pencil Lines Design Team try-out.

I used the following Design Team Search Sketch:


Here is the Layout I created inspired by the Sketch:

I Can Let You Grow LO

Some more scrap therapy for me…to prepare me for Payton to go off to school next year. My Gosh Time Flies! I did a little fall photo shoot with her before we picked-up Caitie from school. I took these pictures on the bridge next to the school. I love that we are just minutes from it and I enjoy this walk with both of them everyday! You can see it’s tough to get this kid to sit still. LOL! I got one amazing shot of her and then off she ran…silly girl. I love her so much. On her first day of school, there will be tears…but, I can let her go off into the world and grow-up. I will be ready then.

My favorite trees are the Willow Trees.  So, I used that as inspiration to create a tree embellishment that reflects Payton’s free spirit and just overall personality. I just love the way this tree turned out! Of course, when you sketch it out on paper it looks great. But, getting your idea out onto your LO is totally another thing. Thank goodness my idea worked out…I believe it is a tree that reflects Payton. I love the whimsy of the leaves, the colors, the tree bark, and the owl (taken from the owl on Payton’s shirt…my favorite shirt on her). I attached the Owl Clear Sticker by Hambly Screen Prints to the Bright White cardstock by The Paper Company. I attached the Tree Clear Sticker by Hambly Screen Prints to the Autumn Cider Patterned Paper by American Crafts. Of course, I used the Circle Foam Tabs to give them that 3D effect among the leaves.

My journaling reflects exactly the way I feel at this moment. Pretty Computer Font Time! I used Another Typewriter (downloaded off the internet) for my journaling on this LO. I used the Autumn Cider Patterned Paper again for my journaling tag. I used my Black Zig Writer pen to add brackets to the paper.

I combined the patterned papers and embellishments from the Nightfall and Amy Tangerine Lines from American Crafts. LOVE IT!
