Walk Tall

I made this layout for Paper Goddess' October Layout a Day challenge, I don't know if I'll be able to do every day because Charlotte's birthday (and party) are in the middle of the month, but a girl can try, right?
The sketch is from A Scrap Addicts Sketches again, I really love her sketches and blog right now, I seem to be lacking inspiration but have a million pages and photos I want to get scrapped and her sketches always give me some sort of direction to get started. You can see here I've moved some bits and pieces around but the point of a sketch is to be a jumping point not an exact science.
This page is probably the quickest I have scrapped a photo from when it was taken, the photo was taken on Monday of Charlotte walking, (she decided to sit down straight after this and the next photo is her crouching so it was good timing) I just loved how she has her little arms out and a look on her face that is a combination of pride and concentration! The day was also perfect for getting photos, I didn't have to touch this up in photo shop! After months of dodgy inside with flash photos over winter it was nice to just be able to point and click and have a nice shot.

Well check you out!! My first entry and HOW ADORABLE! Your daughter Charlotte is to die for. That's one of my end-all-be-all favorite baby names.

Thanks for joining me in my Layout A Day challenge. Now, I guess I better get my act together and do one myself!!

Great layout Zarna, and I bet there is going to be a few more 'walking' LOs over the next few months!
