Time for Bed, Already?

I love the colours in the CSI #13 colour palette (see below) and I knew the perfect pictures to use with it.  I have had these photos of my grandson for a while and hadn't found the best way to scrap them so this was perfect.

This is the colour palette I used from Colour Stories Inspiration

Choose two (or more) of the following elements to include on your layout:  My selections are highlighted is pink/blue.
  • Make a pinwheel (here are two tutorials on how to make them: here and here ).
  • hearts
  • string/yarn/fiber/ twine
  • map print
  • jewels
  • Make a spiral flower, like in the center of the pinwheel.
  • Tuck a little surprising detail somewhere on your page.
Choose one (or more)of the following to inspire your journaling:
  • Document something related to play (child or adult play).
  • Tuck your journaling into something so that it's partially hidden.
  • Write your journaling so that it goes in a circle or spiral.
  • Write one central idea and four supporting details/examples (as inspired by the center of the pinwheel and the 4 parts coming off of it.
  • Inspiration words: play, surprise, delight -- Use these as a jumping-off point for your journaling (not just as a title).
This is the sketch I used from Lets Get Sketchy
As you will see from my layout I have move the main part of the sketch to the left as I thought it worked better with my photographs, but other than that I tried to stay true to the sketch.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.

I would love it if you would like to do one or more of the following
