Sketch #55

New Sketch and New DCWV stack! I used the new All About Boys Stack for my example, don't you love the colors? my brother is pretty cute too. :) This is a super simple layout but you can add bits here and there in the blank spaces. I used a 4x6" photo but this sketch easily allows for a 5x7" photo in that spot.

Another sweet little boy page - this one is from Joni Parker.

Here is another patriotic scouts page from Merrick. She is so good with scouts pages Visit Merrick's blog HERE to see more

Sketch #54 12x12

Since I haven't posted new layouts in awhile, I have decided to make some sketches from some of my older layouts. I had a friend of mine pick a few that she would like to see and I will share them with you this week. Here is the first one, a really fun sketch, but I just realized that you are getting alot of sketches with portrait oriented photos, so I will try to give you a couple with landscape orientation next. :) Have fun and be sure to link me to your layouts!

Joni sent me this frosty layout example. I just love the papers she used.
Visit Joni's blog HERE.

Tami created another one of her great two pagers from this one page sketch. Sometimes she uses the same sketch design twice and maybe turns one of the pages, but this time she actually stretched the design and I love the result! You must visit Tami's blog here for close ups and details, check out her fabric die cut embellishments up close.

My friend, Laurie, sent me her example of this sketch and I think its just totally fun. I dare you not to sing along! If you visit Laurie's blog here you can see close ups as well as a video of this song. :)

Sabrina was sweet enought to send me a link to her layout for this sketch. It's really so cute. Visit Sabrina's blog here to see close ups and some of her other pages.

sent this totally summery version and just look at the size of that Hawaiian Ice! I want one now.
