Sketchy Thursday

The pictures on this layout were taken on October 4th on a beautiful fall day in Apple Hill (a favorite destination around here for apple picking, hay rides and all kinds of fall festivities). I knew this pictures were a great 'Mommy and baby' layout because I noticed that my section with my son has very few layouts compared to the 'Daddy and baby' section. 

Here is the sketch for this week at Sketchy Thursday:

And here is my take on the sketch. I am definitely a clean and simple scrapper, but I am LOVING pleating my pp strips lately!! Its so fun and easy; plus it adds some dimension! 

My 'insider' information:
---- My patterned pps are all We R Memory Keepers Maple Grove
--- Instead of going with three photos connected I used three 3x4 staggered to add some movement to the layout
---- I took three 1" strips and pleated them across the layout. This did two things: added dimension to the layout and ground the white background. 
--- I kept the embellishments simple with fall colored flowers
