August Sketch Challenge

Hi there!
I hope you all are enjoying a nice start to your weekend.  Today is the day to share with you my first Sketch Challenge over at Life.Paper.Scrapbook.  I am a little excited and giddy about this because it is my first project that I have created for LPS, and it was totally fun!

I have been eyeing the Sweet Shoppe collection from Lily Bee for awhile and finally decided to break down and purchase a few pieces.  I love the way the patterns in this collection compliment my black and white photos of my kids goofing around and sharing a few jokes at the park.  My layout started out true to the sketch with a large circle behind my photos.  But then it took on a whole new direction.  Does that ever happen to you?  lol.  After moving my photos around I decided to go with a large vellum square piece as my backdrop instead.  I still kept plenty of circles on my layout with my Lily Bee sweet shoppe stickers and Atlantic pieces.

Here is what I created..
