Doodlebug Sunkissed Layout using PageMaps Sketch

Today it's my turn on the Doodlebug blog and I'm sharing a closer look at a playful layout I created using a new PageMaps sketch by Becky Fleck and Doodlebug's adorable Sunkissed collection!

Here's a peek at Becky's wonderful sketch from this month that inspired my page:

I chose to combine the two smaller photos into one larger 5" x 4" photo which led me to a great selfie my daughter took of herself on my camera last spring.  To mimic the circle title in the sketch, I used THIS awesome "selfie" cutting file and welded it to a circle which I had offset to match the thickness of the word.  I then layered them on a scalloped circle and completed my title with Doodlebug's Teensy Type Alpha Stickers.

For the second point in my visual triangle I layered a couple clouds (from the new Doodlebug Sizzix dies) with a sunshine sticker from the icon sticker sheet.

I completed my visual triangle with a camera sticker which I layered with a glitter sprinkle and tied with doodle twine.  It felt like the perfect embellishment to tie in with my selfie theme so I was pretty excited to find it on that same icon sticker sheet!

If you aren't familiar with the PageMaps website, make sure to head over and take a look.  She has a wonderful archive section dating all the way back to the beginning in 2006 with printable PDF's for each month.  I can't believe she has been inspiring us for almost a decade now--Oh how time flies when we're having fun!  ;)

Thanks for hanging with me.  :)
