My Creative Time's Design Team Day using a sketch

Hello and thanks for dropping by. For today's design team post Emma gave a sketch to work with and we were to create either a layout or a card. Here is the sketch we had to work with:

So I had this idea to make a LO and everything evolved from there. This is the part of my layout that looks like the sketch:

Here is the picture of the whole LO. You can click on the pictures if you would like to see them zoomed in a little more.

The Mickey ribbon going across is supposed to be a 'camera strap.' I also had a lot of fun making my own background paper. I used my HUGE acrylic block from Market Street Stamps and layered EVERY stamp from Emma's Camera Shy stamp set in a rectangular pattern. I added just a couple of small stamps from the Mom You Rock and You're My Best Buddy stamp sets to even things out. Then I inked it up and stamped it on my background. It took 4 times inking it up and stamping it to cover the entire red paper. I LOVED how it turned out. For the white background I used the "Seeing Spots" Cuttlebug embossing folder. I also stamped the 'capture a moment in time...' stamp repeatedly around the border of my photo mat.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day.
