20th March - Layout Challenge

Hope you've been enjoying the spring sunshine where you are, it's been lovely here lately!
This week's layout challenge is to use this sketch...
There is a twist though, we would to see you add RUFFLES to your page!

Here's what the design team have come up with this week.

 For my ruffles I used fabric and pushed the material though the sewing machine so it bunched up to make the ruffles.
I loved this sketch and I plan on using it again and again because it's so versatile!  Lots of fussy cutting here you can see but the flower/doily paper just screamed "fussy cut me". To make my ruffle I just punched the paper with a lace punch, gathered it together and stitched over the top. I shaped it a bit to resemble a smile. I incorporated my title into my journaling to help keep more of the black space around the rest of the layout.

This is a photo of my youngest Elouise on a fine autumn day last year. The sun hit her blonde hair, making her look just radiant. Plus she was out to lunch on a weekday with Mum and Dad while her brother and sister were at school. That alone was enough to put a huge smile on her face!

Papers by Prima, resin heart from Websters, My Favorite Things scallop die, Making Memories sticker letters, ruffle ribbon by Bella and butterfly punch from Martha Stewart,

Our guest designer Pati
On the page Little Girl, I used a photo of me with 6 months on the porch of the house where we lived. In the tags under the photo,  I was say the first daughter and granddaughter of the family, which meant that our house was a special place, where I have great memories! It seems it was another day that I was just a little girl! How time flies!

A few of the other ladies from the other design teams have joined in this week to give you even more inspiration!

I love a great, simple sketch and knew exactly what photo I wanted to use for this one. Then I saw the 'ruffle rule' and had to think of a way to make it work on my boy page.
To make my 'boy' ruffle, I used twill ribbon and simply bunched it up on a piece of super sticky red line tape:
Isn't it amazing how different all these layouts are but all made from the same sketch?! We would love to see what you do with it, don't forget this month you could win goodies from Scrap with a V.
