Every month me and two of my friends have started a scrapbooking challenge. One person chooses a sketch and also a “theme”. We each then have to use the sketch as inspiration for a layout. We also use the theme phrase on that layout or complete another layout using the theme. We started it last month, so I got a little behind right out of the gate and am now catching up. I have cheated a bit on the “theme” part by making it fit things I NEED to scrap right now anyway instead of letting it stretch me some, but I have really been enjoying working with this challenge and seeing how others interpret the same layout and theme.

The layout above is from the sketch for March. My “Anticipation” layout below was based on the March theme of the same name. John’s birth layout titled “New Arrival” was based on the April theme of “Before and After”. I am almost done with the April sketch layout and will post it soon.

GG (my mom) is one of Olivia’s favorite people. I have had it in my mind to complete a layout of them together for the longest time. I think this is a fun one for those two girls.
