Sketches and minutiae

I'm always inspired by sketches;  I love seeing where the starting point leads me.

The first layout is based on the March sketch challenge at C'est Magnifique.  I kept it really simple to keep the focus on the photographs.  I've been taking more and more 'every day' photos at home and I want to document some of the little moments:


And a little close-up of the butterfly which I fussy-cut from a scrap of Prima patterned paper:

I hope this is suitable for Scrap Our Stash Birthday Challenge #10, for the balloons / flying theme.

The second layout is another minutiae from our summer holiday.  I created this one based on the sketch at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia:

I'm not all that happy with it and almost didn't share it.  It seems a little "boxy" or something?  I had a picture in my mind how it would turn out, then I lost focus partway through and couldn't get it to flow like I imagined.   Anyway, it is what it is...   I did enjoy the hand stitching!
