Sketch #109 12x12

This sketch has lots of space for photos, it can be used for scrapping with pocket page type cards, and I have included 5 spots for square photos in case you need to scrap some of those instagram photos you have been taking :) For my example I have used MME Collectable collection papers and some Simple Stories Say Cheese stickers.
For close ups and details, visit my blog HERE

 And here is a page by Laurie Zeller using a fantastic number paper for the background - pretty fun for a numbered list type layout :) Visit Laurie's Blog Here for more inpsiration

2 page Sketch #18

I don't have an example for this one yet. I created this one for Disney Scrappers with instagram photos in mind.  Great way to get a bunch of photos scrapped and I kept it simple so you could add as little or as much embellishment as you like. I was thinking it would be great for parade photos or disney top 8 faves

And here is a fantastic example of this sketch by my friend, Laurie Zeller. Thanks so much! I love this sketch for a list. For more inspiration visit Laurie's Blog HERE.

 And here is another fun Disney example from Cheryl Even. It's just a great way to use alot of photos on your layout and still have room to journal or do a bit of embellishment.  Visit Cheryl's Blog here

Sketch #101 12x12

 Here is my example using various My Mind's Eye papers and some vellum. Instead of a sun, my element sticking out of the top of the photo area is supposed to be the spotlights/searchlights of a hollywood opening....yeah, maybe not but you get the idea. For close ups and details visit my blog HERE

Sketch #100 12x12

Sorry I haven't posted in sooooo long. I have had holidays and family life making me lazy. I decided to go ahead and post two layouts for you today. Thanks for sticking with me :) Thanks to everyone who has commented and shared a link to a page using a sketch, I just love seeing your creations.

And funny enough this just happens to be Sketch #100. I have a page done with this sketch but it has been sort of published so I can't share at this time. I will get a new example for you soon.

My good friend, Laurie, was kind enough to create the example for this layout for me. I just love her "Casa de la tires" banner and the great pappers she used, but the flowers are incredible! Visit Laurie's Blog here for details and close ups. 

Here is an example from a follower "Scrappin Hard" and you just have to love the fun arrow design and cute camera. Visit Scrappin Hard's blog HERE.
