SOS June Blend-a-Sketch "Brothers"

It is time for this month's Blend-a-Sketch from over at the Scrap Our Stash Blog!

Here is how I blended the 2 sketches:
From the Left Sketch, I used 3 small photos, a "ric rac" paper boarded between 2 papers, torn paper, title on the upper right corner.
From the Right Sketch, I used the split base page, general paper placement, staggered photos and stars.
And I didn't forget to add Stars and Star patterned paper too!

Here is my Layout for your inspiration:
 These are photos from a picnic at my brother-in-law Rich's house - I can't believe it was almost 9 years ago!  It ended up being a rainy day, they had to BBQ under umbrellas, but I love their smiles!  These 3 guys are more than brothers - they are best friends too!  It is always fun to be around them. They may be men, but they will always be boys at heart! 
I love this BoBunny Zip-a-Dee Doodle collection and thought it worked great for this challenge and these photos! 

Here are some close ups for you too:

I really hope you will join us this month, over at the Scrap Our Stash Blog - Let us help you get a layout done, use up some of your stash, and maybe make room for some more scrappy goodies too!

*I have also entered this layout in the following 2 challenges:
 Off the Rails Scrapbook Blog June Challenge - I love the blue and green colors in the top left of their inspiration photo, and in this BoBunny Collection - and this is a Summer Layout too!

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you get a chance to get Scrappy With It this month too!

  1. Love love love love this! LOVING the colors and the stars!!!!!

  2. What a fun mix of papers and elements. You always do such a great job using coloured cardstock. We don't see that too much anymore. I love how the navy cardstock breaks up the starkness of the (mostly) white background. Love the flairs and little camera. Really nice take on the Blend-A-Sketch challenge as well. TFS.

  3. Love your take on the Challenge. Thanks for joining in with us this month at Off The Rails.

  4. Awesome page! Loving your use of colour and pattern.
