Scrapbook Challenges Sketch #287

Mondays are always fun at Scrapbook Challenges.  We always have a new sketch up that members of our design team take turns designing.  I like that we have the choice between a single page layout sketch and a double page layout sketch.  Double page layouts are really something I am not comfortable with, but I like to go out of my comfort zone and be challenged.  

This layout was done with the "About A Boy" collection by Echo Park.  I thought it could be used for a layout other than a boy layout.  This is of a layout of our summer vacation to Osoyoos, British Columbia, Canada.  It's the only desert in Canada.  The area is known for its many fruit orchards and wineries.  My youngest son, my husband and I met my brother and his family there for two days and decided to tour a winery and see how wine was made.  My husband doesn't drink alcohol and I very rarely drink alcohol but when I do, I like to drink a glass of wine.  No, I didn't want my son to be encouraged to drink, but I thought it would be interesting to see a winery.  We had such a fun time!

I thought this collection gave it a "desert" feel and I wanted to create something that would look like grapes so I got my button stash out and even cut a few stems from a silk plant.  Don't tell anyone.

I hope you like it.
