Watching Things Unfold

Over at Scrapbook Challenges this week's sketch challenge looked like this:

I rarely respond to sketch challenges, because I don't have time, but mainly because I already have my own ideas (I usually think about layouts for weeks in advance. That's why it's annoying when they don't always turn out the way I thought they would. Although sometimes actually it's a nice suprise when they turn out better!).

This time, though, a lot of things coincided perfectly and I was able to make a fairly spontaneous layout. It's a little record of the fun we had taking photos for our Save the Date cards. There were lots of photos we didn't think were up to scratch, including this one below (I vetoed it because of my expression. Otherwise it definitely would have made the cut!):

Anyway, here is my take on the sketch, just a little record of how we're getting on. It'll be interesting to look back on and see how things unfolded...


  1. What a lovely, happy take on a really nice sketch. I love sketches with tree shapes in them!

  2. Seriously fun save the dates!! And I love everything going on with your version of the sketch - I just keep finding new things to look at!

  3. What a fantastic layout. I love it, and the fact you are documenting what you do for the wedding is great.

  4. This is sooooo brilliant! What a fun 'save the date' card. Can't wait to see the other wedding prep snippets.

    Fab layout too! :)

  5. Hi there. Found your blog while blog surfing. Love your description about your maternal crafty heritage. I didn't have that - but hope to pass it on from here. Cheers

  6. Oh How FUN!! Perfect memories to scrap!! Love it!!
