My Mind's Eye august layout challenge

yet another challenge layout this week.  my scrapbook room was used for scrapbooking this weekend vs. cleaning. it's a mess I can barely walk in there!!  EEKS!  The layout below I created for the My Mind's Eye layout challenge.

I created this layout using My Mind's Eye Out of the Blue.  And darling pictures of my nephew in a Sesame Street bouncing thing.  He had a BLAST in this bounce house!

Here is the sketch...
And here is my layout...  Note...I pretty much flipped the sketch, added 3 photos vs. 1 and also a few other extra things.  But the sketch is definitely the base of my layout and I loved putting this together. The papers and sketched worked perfectly for these photos!
Notice in the photo above, I have tags sticking out the top of the layout.  I created a pocket in the back of my layout so I could add journaling on the page without taking up layout space.
I created my own banner and used my WRMK Sew Easy tool to attach it.  I also created circle confetti and randomly glued it to my layout.

Great page! I'm in the midst of my very first scrapbook page. It's a lot of fun but my indecisive "what if I do this" nature is slowing things down. :)
