Paper craft Star Sketch Challenge 12

So it's been almost 3 weeks of blogging and I have to say I am so humbled by all the response and comments from all my fellow crafters. I actually recieved a comment from Elizabeth Moore from Runs with Scraps Blog and co-creator of the Papercraft Star Challenge Blog, who invited me to participate in the current challenge.  Over at the Papercraft Star Challenge blog, this week's challenge is a sketch challenge.

After seeing this sketch I just knew I wanted to do a scrapbook layout.  I was so excited to scrapbook these photos because they have such a great story behind them.  My friend inherited all her family photos from an aunt and has taken on the task of archiving them. She allowed me to help by making a page for her to put alongside the amazing layouts she has already done.  These photos were actually taken for a photo contest in which her Uncle Ronald won!  Her mother Constance is simply adorable, and the two of them together are beautiful children. Here is the page and I hope my dear friend likes it.

Paper:  Designer paper by K&Co
Accessories:  TPC studio ribbon, vintage buttons, handmade ribbon flower, vintage papers
