Sassy Lil' Sketches June 7th

This is the June 7th sketch from the Sassy Lil' Sketches blog. A great sketch for using three photos on a single page layout. I didn't use three but I like that it was an option :)
I made this layout to go with the layout in my previous post. This was right after Ben came out of the OR after the c-section and he got to meet his dad.

I used Sassafras paper whimsies as a border down the side and I didn't like the way they looked separately so I searched for something to connect them. I wanted to use staples, but the space between cards was just a hair too wide so I went with the circle grommets and I like the way it looks more "finished". Kind of like it is one big embellishment instead of a lot of pieces.
When I put this elephant paper in my counterfeit kit, I imagined it with pictures of one of my girls when they were a baby. It was funny when I was looking through the pictures of babies, these were the ones that seemed to work. I still am not sure about all of the patterns and the overwhelming amout of busy on these two layouts, but I think they are starting to grow on me. Thanks for looking.
