Normally I will change up the one page sketches a lot! But in this case the sketch just clicked the way it was. It definitely helped that I had the perfect pictures already printed and on my desk!
The only real variation from the sketch was that instead of stitching (which I can only do in a straight line and Allison was nice enough to have a single straight line on the sketch!) I used a thin strip of brown card stock. It served the same purpose as the stitching in the sketch did, it helped ground the layout, but I needed to tie a bit more brown into the bottom of the page and the position of the stitching in the sketch was perfect!
I replaced the small tag on the top left embellishment cluster with some baker's twine wound around the top and bottom embellishments, as it served as a subtle reminder that even though my dad had always pulled my teeth out (we begged him to!), I just couldn't do it for my son's loose tooth. I also rounded the corners of the layout, to add some more softness to the page and to compliment the wave cut at the page bottom.
