Smiles of Chloe - Sassy & Sketch N Scrap

* Please note I am still battling away posting from my pfiestawhile my computer is out of action. Please excuse poor picture and content quality. Thank you. *

So first up I'll start with an update on the computer situation. I have it back my hot little hands and all my photos are still there! YAY! I must say a huge thank you to my techy friend who prefromed the miracle for me! Thank you thank you thank you! However before I return it to its previous duties I want to do some TLC on it!
Now onto why your really here. I have a scrapbooking page to share.

For this page I have compined two scrap challenges. The first is the March mood board over at Sassy Scrappers, below. Without this mood board the layout would not have happened.

I had taken these photos of Chloe just a day before I'd seen this board. The colours and florals reminded me of the dress she was wearing so I printed them immediately. The bottom right picture inspired me to use the jillibean frames around my two favourite photos.

The layout of the page was based on a sketch at Sketch N Scrap here ( )
When you ask chloe to smile you could receive a wide range of looks, on this occasion I got two of them. My two most favourite. The nose scrunchie and the cranky glare. I kinda split the page in a way with the two 'smiles'

The top section featuring the cranky face and sub title life. The bottom section the nose scrunchie.

I have used the October Afternoon 'Midway' papers and chipboard pieces which I coloured with sharpie markers and placed on the photos making them extra fun! The photo booth paper was extra perfect for this page and the shots either side sums it up nicely.

I flirted with alot of different titled for my page (its normally the easy part) I looked up different quotes and long winded essays but eventually settled with just a simple description of the photos (at 3:30am while up with a non sleeping infant, thanks Jayce)

Oh how I wish I had a sewing machine just for my paper crafts! Instead I will stick to drawing it on and outlining everything.
Thanks for dropping in.
