Baby Mine

I am so excited about my newest layout!
I did a few new things that really turned out well, and I have Sketchabilities and Sketches in Thyme to thank for the inspiration! 
These two sketches are so awesome, I loved using them for my inspiration for a double layout.

Here is my layout 

I took inspiration from the sketches, and also from the lullaby "Baby Mine" ( I especially love the Alison Krauss version, but Dumbo is a classic!).
The first page is based on the Sketchabilities challenge. I absolutely love this sketch...really I love all of the Karan Gerber sketches, my first challenge was a Scrap Our Stash challenge with a sketch from Karan Gerber and it was my initial inspiration for starting a blog and completing challenges!

The Sketches in Thyme sketch challenge was also awesome. I loved this sketch so much, I like the flow and movement of the sketch and I really wanted to incorporate the 3 dimensional quality it portrayed. 

As always...some close ups :)

I used ribbon and flowers to create a 3 dimensional element, I was really happy with the outcome.
The flowers were my favorite thing to make for this page. I had such a blast making them for the first time. Usually I am content to create flat stacked flowers, but for this sketch I really wanted something more substantial.
I don't normally make such long titles for my pages but I decided to forgo journaling in order to use this title, which is one of my favorite lines from the song.
I got these adorable tiny clips at target a few days ago and knew I wanted to incorporate them into my page! I love the dollar section at target, I find so many fun things for my layouts there!
I am also really happy with how easy the sew easy tool makes sewing cool designs on my pages.

Have you ever made a layout based on a favorite song? I would love to see them! Have a scrap'n good time!
