Nikki Sivils - take one

Yesterday I shared with the you the February Sketch/Technique Challenge over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles.  Today I'll show you the original layout I did with the same photo and product.

When I first opened the My Lil' Monster line, the first photo that came to mind to use for my layout was one I had taken just a few days prior.  It's a photo of my two youngest girls with their cousin Jayden.  My brother and his wife make some pretty cute babies, I think you'd agree.  This kid is so delightful.  He enters the room, and it's like the lights have been turned up to their brightest capacity.  He's sweet, funny, handsome, loving, and going to be a great catch for some lucky young lady in about 30 or 40 years *giggle*.  I adore him to pieces - we all do.  Here's the original creation with the Nikki Sivils product.
I had to bribe Jayden with cookies to get him to sit still for this shot :)
It was only after I had completed the journaling that I remembered the layout was intended for use with the sketch challenge.  The primary requirement for a sketch challenge, is to use the actual sketch, go figure.  This looked nothing like the sketch.  There was no way I could use this layout on the Scrapping Everyday Miracles Blog.  No biggie, I figured since I had so much product (thanks to the generous Ms. Sivils), I would simply create a second layout for the site.  I love this design.  Some of the elements are popped off the page. How cute are those little banners?  I'm hoping to lift it for use with another line I have in mind.  A big thank you to Nikki for generously sponsoring SEM this month and pulling me a little outside my box with these bold beautiful colours.

Have a great day friends,
