Canadian Scrapbooker February Sketch

I turned this:

Into this:

Supplies Used: Patterned Paper- Basic Grey. My Little Shoebox; Punch- Stampin' Up!; Stickers- Basic Grey; Stamp- Donna Downey for Unity; Book text from 'Alice le Fee'.

I thought it would be neat to try tone on tone for the title.  I was right.  It is neat- it just doesn't photograph well with my little instant camera. (Our regular camera was dropped by the beautiful photo subject here. Sigh.)  I used one of Avery's old books to make the ruffle frame around the photo, something I learned at Cropazanza in Red Deer from Donna Downey.  It killed me a little to rip up the book.  Avery is happy though.  She is planning on using the pages to make paper beads, so I guess all is well!  The little Basic Grey envelope holds some notes from Avery on what she wants to be when she grows up (vet, fashion designer), who her friends are and what she likes best about school, etc.

You can see what amazing layouts others made with this sketch, and find out how you can play along too right here.
