I embarked on an ambitious project this week: I am making an ABC album for my son's kindergarten teacher. She had a rough year with him because of some behavioral issues (his, not hers!), but she was wonderful with him and we saw lots of improvement, so this is my big thanks for her perseverance with him. It's quite a project so I'm creating layouts as inspiration strikes, which is why these are out of order.
For the J layout, I used sketch 200 from Sketches in Thyme. Since my layout was only 8" x 8", I went with a much larger picture than shown on the sketch, and I snuggled part of my title up against the photo since it wouldn't fit across the page.
For the K layout, I used the May 1st sketch from Stuck Sketches. In retrospect, I kinda wish I'd added an embossed pattern to the green pieces for extra interest, but once I glued everything down, I decided to just keep moving. After all, I have 24 more layouts to complete!
