It all starts with a sketch

If you are here for the blog hop.
Check out the prior post

Whether it starts with a sketch I have stumbled across or one that I have come up with myself, it always seems to be the best way for me to start the creative process. The sketch below I put together from ideas that have caught my eye and I mashed them together with some ideas of my own.
Thus begins the creative process.
I had the pics of B.
I knew that I was going to use the beautiful Journey line by Authentique
I had my sketch.:
Here is what I came up with:
I mixed and matched the letter stickers for my title and used matching twine to stitch the arrows:
I got the idea for  the journaling strips from the little papers that stick out of hershey kisses. Fun inspiration is everywhere!
I loved the result!
Bryant is surrounded by all kinds of music.
I love that his tastes reflect all kinds.
The pic of him wearing a Beastie Boys shirt and a cowboy hat was such a perfect example. The pic was not even planned, but it was perfect all the same.
Gotta love that!

Happy Scrappin'!!

Gorgeous layout with so many special touches. Love the journalling on the paper strips and the little turnover with the button on the bottom left corner.

Cool layout. Love the circles you use as embellishments.
