More February Scrapbooking challenges

Here are four more challenges for various blogs I’m following now.

First, is the February 15th sketch from Sketchbook365:

1MAR SKETCH And here is my take on it …  An adorable old photo of my Dad and the Easter Bunny, probably taken sometime around 1947 (give or take a year):

Next comes the second February sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap:

I’m not as wild about this one, but here it is:  (My dad and his cousin on their first communion, with his Aunt Clara standing as Godmother)

The third layout is for a challenge on the “About a Boy” blog page.  They didn’t have a sketch posted, so I used one from a guest design challenge on Colorful Creations that I missed doing last month:

And this is my layout – of my Dad as a baby:

I’d been worried about adding too much color to my old photos because I didn’t want to take away from the “antique” feel that I was hoping for with this album, but I really like how this page turned out.

My fourth layout is for Paper Secrets.  Here is their February 15th sketch:

The twist for this sketch was to use pennants.  I my layout, I used one pennant in the bottom left corner:
