04/03/17 - MIM Sketch #85

Happy Make It Monday to you!

Today I'm bringing you:

MIM Sketch #85

"Happy Monday"
"Happy Monday...right?!
I mean, those two words: "happy" and "Monday" can go in a sentence together...I think...
though for me it's rare! I have my coffee, my hair is looking good again thanks to some much
needed time at the salon,  and I bought a cute comfty sweater for 50% off this weekend
so maybe, just maybe, this will be a Happy Monday! 03.20.17"
The sketch is actually entitled "Scallops" and I'm sure you can see why.
I didn't use any scallops on my layout though,  I just wasn't feeling the "scallop" vibe, but I still followed the sketch pretty closely:
  • 2 photos - one bigger one smaller
  • the photo placement
  • the crooked paper behind the photos
  • the embellishment(s) on the right hand side of the larger photo
  • the title at the bottom left.
Why am I pointing all this out?
Because I don't want you to be scared of/not try using a sketch because you can't copy it EXACTLY... just use pieces of it to inspire you!

Hope I've inspired you to play along; you have until April 30th to get your entry in at The Memory Nest !
