The last Sketch-a-thon sketch and a good-bye

Here is my last layout for the Sketch-a-thon at Memorable Seasons, you have until December 30th if you'd like to play along, to link up, click here.

This was my absolute favorite layout that I created with this kit.  First of all I was able to get ahold of the ephemera package which was the perfect touch to create this, all those lovely bits and pieces!  I love this picture I took of the kids Christmas morning before opening the presents; I could have asked for anything at this point as they wanted to get started, lol!  I really wanted to keep this paper intact, but I was finding it hard to ground my picture and also embrace the floating stars.  By placing my photos in the stars (it really worked better with only 4 pics, but hey we had 5 kids then) and using a bold title I was able to create a flow through the whole page that was pleasing.  I made sure to use a few pops of black to make visual triangles.

Here is the sketch I created from my layout,

And this is my final layout for Memorable Seasons.  I have enjoyed my time here as a design team member and the coordinator, but the season has changed and it is time for me to embrace that new season.  I thank you all for your friendship and the opportunity to have served you these past few years.
