I love the ways this layout ended up. I tried to follow the sketch more closely and use a bird for the left bottom corner, but when I saw this kite on Boys Will Be Boys I had to use it. I really like how summery and cheerful all the cuts are. The sun is from Doodle Charms and the tree is from Just Because Cards. Actually that tree with the tree swing is the reason I bought that cartridge. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. I have some old pictures of my boys flying kites at my Grandparents house when they were little. I think this layout will be perfect for those. Almost forgot, the clouds are from Stand and Salute. I didn't want big puffy clouds for my summery layout and when I saw these I thought they were perfect. The red paper is from scraps left over on 3/27/11. The striped paper is from 3/14/2011 and the green polka dot paper on the tree is from 3/19/11.
Tomorrow will be one week since I started this challenge to myself. In honor of my progress over the past week I will post another layout and another look at my scraproom. See you there.
