Anna's Craft Cupboard

The April Sketch Challenge at Anna's Craft Cupboard was the perfect way to scrap my most current favourite photo. I really wanted to document the fact that my daughter got braces on this day. I wanted to play up on the blue of Sophie's glasses and ended up with a mostly monochromatic colour scheme.
I initially I choose the butterfly embellishment because it was in a similar colour range but ultimately I choose it because I feel like Sophie is going through a metamorphosis going through puberty, getting braces, growing up etc. just like a butterfly.

Stuck Sketches - April 15

For my BIG birthday this year my family and I went on a holiday to Singapore (over the Easter school holidays) to celebrate. I have tons of photos and would like to scrap them as soon as possible before I forget everything.
I have used the sketch from Stuck Sketches for my very first layout of my very first day in Singapore. I celebrated with a cocktail.
My favourite embellishment (OK I know there weren't many) on this layout would have to be that velum photo frame with the title Ladylike Photos Inc. by hmmm...American Crafts. So not me going by those ridiculous expressions I'm pulling.
