February layout from SCT planner sketch

Another layout!!!
Another layout where I used Scrapbook & Cards Today sketch from my planner.
It is the sketch from February.
If you had noticed all of my layouts from these sketches have been not only Christmas themed layouts, but they have all been on my grandson Sawyer ;)

I started a tradition with Sawyer, where I read him "Twas the Night Before Christmas" on Christmas Eve.
When my daughter's were young, we would read from this Christmas book all during the holiday season, then when they were old enough to read, they would read the stories to me.
So I love that I could continue this with my grandson :)

I knew I wanted to scrapbook this tradition, but when I found this paper with the whole story written on it from Graphic 45's "Christmas Past" collection...I just knew I needed to use this perfect!!!!
For the title I used my label maker with gold backing and backed it with papers from Recollections "Joyful Christmas" collection.

I love this little cluster I created in the corner.
I cut the tag with my Stampin' Up tag punch from the Recollections paper.
The doily was inked with Distress ink and the ornament piece was from a Christmas gift tag that I kept as I thought it was to pretty to get rid of ;)
If you look closely, you can see a bit of sparkly  thin thread. I purchased a whole collection of different colours from the dollar store before Christmas.

Here is the sketch provided by Scrapbook & Cards Today in my Creative Planner I purchased from them.
Just to show that being it was a sketch for February and was mainly a heart themed layout, I took it in a whole new way.
I used a square shape instead of the heart, and my cluster was in the opposite corner of the layout
Mind you I would love to do a heart layout as well ;)

I actually made my layout in December, before I even made the January layout.
But I wanted a double page layout for this one, and February's sketch fit perfectly for this page.
Here are both of the pages side by side...February and December's.
To see a closer look at December's layout check out This post

Because both of these have photos on the layouts...I can count them as complete...right Kristy?!

I hope you all have a very Creative Day :)
