The new September sketch is up over on the Paper Issues blog!! Here's the sketch...
And here's my layout using the beautiful Love Always collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio, I just love the look of the soft pastels with the black and white! The colors were perfect to use with this photo of my girlie on her Kindergarten graduation.
I followed the base of the sketch pretty close, with the three different pieces for the background, and then changed it up a bit by using just a single photo, and adding the embellishments to the bottom left of the photo instead of the bottom right.
