I started this layout thinking I would use a sketch and be able to get it one and entered but September was a busy month so I lost my sketch and missed the entry deadline.
I started by matting my photos and selecting various scraps for the strips across the layout. I cut this felt butterfly in half and stitched a couple of circles onto the page with embroidery yarn.
This layout was so much easier to do on the 8 1/2 x 11 size than the 12x12. Since it's for my youngest I didn't add the butterfly and I did forget to do the stitching.
The journaling on the layouts read:
You must have made hundreds of trips down with the wheelbarrow. A week of hard work and we have a patio we can actually use and enjoy.
