Make It Monday #84 @ The Memory Nest

Hello, hello! Happy Monday to you! Boy did that weekend go by fast! I know they usually do, but with Daylight Saving Time beginning this weekend, it really went by fast!

Are you ready for a new sketch to work with? It's Make It Monday over at The Memory Nest, and Leslie has created another great sketch to work with.

This photo of Ada just makes me smile every time that I see it. We were at my niece's Sweet 16 birthday party and she had a Mardi Gras theme. Ada wasn't too sure of all the masks that everyone was wearing when we first got there, but once she put one on she didn't want to take it off!

For this layout I have used a mix of patterned papers that I had in my stash. The paper with the hearts on it is from Crate Paper's "Hello Love" collections, the light green behind the photo is from Amy Tangerine's "Rise and Shine" collection, and the pink is from Amy Tangerine's "Better Together" collection. The project life cards on each side of the photo are from Pink Paislee's "Bella Rouge" collection. I added in a few extra papers cut down to a 3x4 size to go behind the photo.

You can't tell it in the photo - the colors look a little off - but the pink and green metallic papers match her mask and the little bit of green in her shirt.

Be sure to stop by The Memory Nest to see how the rest of the design team used this sketch. I hope you get a chance to play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!
