May 28 SOUS - The Simple Life

Hello, everybody! This will be a short post because I am actually away taking care of some business but wanted to publish my Stuck on U Sketches layout for this week. We had a fabulous sketch by Beggahuna that incorporates lots of negative space ... something that is hard for me to approach. I generally like lots of embellishment and always find myself trying hard to fill those blank spots. But I really wanted to tackle this one and I'm very pleased with the outcome. This is my dgs Christian hunting for Easter eggs. The weather co-ooperated for a nice day and we got tons of pictures. So the 5 photo layout was a bonus for me!

My papers and embellishment are from my blog candy win over at my friend  Debbie's blog. They are the Basic Grey "Green at Heart" collection.  Such bright cheerful papers!  Thanks, Debbie! I actually repeated the sketch in a mirror image and made a second page with photos from the same day, so I got 9 pix done with this minimalistic sketch. Pretty cool, huh?

Here is the other page using the same sketch and again using my BG Green at Heart paper and embellies: 

Thanks for coming by this week. Hope you have a great, safe Memorial Day weekend!
