I haven't played along with any of the sketches since my term over at Stuck Sketches ended over a year ago. I print out the sketches monthly and this most recent one just jumped out at me, screamed to be used! Be sure to check them out HERE.
The melding of the BoBunny background and the Simple Stories lines went together like peaches and cream! It was like the collections were made for each other! The Simple Stories needed some doodling to mimic the BoBunny flowers for a little more tie in but otherwise, it's seamless!
I've had that bit of SEI sitting in my scraps stash for some time now. The perfect compliment to the other papers. A little pleat here and a tuck there; be still my beating heart. The journaling strips have a touch of ink around the edges to soften the cream a tad.
I hummed and hawed over that border strip and finally decided it needed fussy cutting. It was too boxy otherwise.
The story of this picture is perfectly captured in the journaling. I wish I had a video of the occasion. When we went to visit last summer Mia was particularly clingy. Not in a needy way. Affectionate. She needs physical affirmation to fill her love quota. Grandpa wasn't quite on the same page. He tried hard not to let her get too close. She wasn't having any part of that. She almost edged him off the couch!
