October Afternoon Building Block

Wahoo!
Got some Scrappy time done this weekend. 
Andrea and Joyce came over and I actually got a bunch done :):):)

One thing I worked on is this layout using the OA Building Blog sketch.

When I came across this photo and thought about our family's love of reading, I thought...
why not use these papers?!?! They are just for boys ;)  When you have two boys and a lot of boy themed papers...you tend to think outside the box with them, LOL!

When I started with the Building Block, I really went with the idea of the sketch as just that...a starting point...

I thought the large image would help balance the photo along the very top of the page. I see
this design a lot but sometimes, when I try it, it seems top heave and this seems more balanced for me.

And to "girl it up" I added some tulle ;)
