"The Story" for LGS and CKC

Happy Sunday, everyone!  After spending yesterday in bed (stomach bug?) I was ready to get some scrapping done.  I had taken this photo of Brenna on a rare occasion when I didn't have to work and her daycare was closed- we went to Strongstart, which is something we used to do quite often pre-job, and she just LOVES to go!

I used products from my March Counterfeit Kit and this beautiful sketch from "Let's Get Sketchy":
The background paper seemed to work well as it already had designs in the two corners, so rather than cover those designs with paper, I opted to leave them as is.

I have this app on my phone where I can attach notes to photos, so sometimes, if I remember, I'll type out the story right after I take the photo.  Makes it waaaaay easier when it comes time to journal on a scrapbook page if the story is already there!

A close up of some of the journaling:
The doily used to be white, but I coloured it with one of the Gelatos from my March Counterfeit Kit.

The story I wanted to include was quite long, so after much deliberation and inspiration from the folks at Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog, I decided to journal around the edge of my page to make a border.  I quite like how it turned out!

And finally, a closer look at the little flags under the photo:
Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
