I used the sketch from Scrap Our Stash (featured at that link, if it works, is my friend, Steffanie's layout -- I think it's awesome!) Here's the sketch:
I love the energy in it and it's different than I normally do. So here's my take:
One of the things I love about this blog and it's challenges is that they don't encourage you to go buy all kinds of latest and greatest -- they encourage you to use your stash. The off-white/beige paper came from my very first DCWV stack, Old World. The burgandy and blue papers come from an MME stack from 2010. The title I printed out on my computer and the little bit of white branches embellishment came from packaging somewhere sometime.
The photos are Ben and his principal and one of the proofs. We weren't thrilled with his proofs, so we chose one for the year book and kept the proofs but didn't buy anything else (so the embellishment covers the photographer's name).
I'm really happy with how this came out -- I think it has a casual elegance to it.
