I am super excited to share with you my very first layout I did for the Once Upon A Sketch April Challenge!! I can't believe I did my first layout and it was a little more challenging than I thought it was going to be considering I had the sketch but I think it turned out pretty good for it being my first one! :)
So the journaling theme is "An event that changed my life" I think the them in itself was what prompted me to try to do a layout because the first thing that came to mind was my son. He was born with Craniosynostosis (spelling) where the soft spot on the top of his head was prematurely fused together before he was born. His head was shaped like a football and without surgery would cause him a world of problems down the road. He has forever changed me and the experience itself, handing over a 6 pound baby and not knowing if your going to get him back is the hardest thing I have ever had to do.
Here is April's sketch:
Here is a link to their blog with the challenge:
Here is a pic of the layout...my title is "All Because Two People Fell in Love"
Some of my journal in right above it and there is more on the back...I couldn't fit everything I wanted to say in little space..lol!
I also used a couple of my Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays Afternoon Delight Denim and Dark Chocolate Truffle. I also used some yummy flowers form Craftsupplies1 and also some Prima Junkyard Findings and the metal filigrees are from Butterbee Scraps.
Here is some more close-ups
I had a lot of fun making this sketch and it really brought me out of my comfort zone! I encourage you if you have never done one to try :)
And last but not least here is my YouTube video with all the details:
