I was really looking forward to trying out this sketch since I found out a way of printing photos on my Canon Selphy printer as photostrips!!
In the end I created TWO layouts for this sketch - the main reason being I had sooooooo many photos from Elora's recent 16th birthday and a photo strip is a great way of showing off lots!
My first project sticks to the sketch pretty closely. I added in a larger focal photo as I really wanted to include this cute picture of her alongside those of her with her friends.
As these are birthday pics I am still working with the "Happy Day" collection from Traci Reed Designs so that all of the projects in her album feel linked together.
The second project I made documents selfies she took with her BFF for her birthday sleepover. The majority of papers here are from the "Happy Day" collection but I wanted to mix it up a little so I added in some pieces from the "My Story Matters" collection from Traci. That journal card which I'm using as a title is from that older collection, as are a couple of the word bits. The two collections work really well in colour and theme.
For this version of the sketch you can see I mirrored it and I really like the effect. I also used white card stock as this is nearly the last page in the birthday run of stories and wanted to give the eye a little rest from all the colours in the pages before.
