Remember the sketch blog that I told you about - www.gotsketch.blogspot.com?
Did you check it out?
It ROCKS, doesn't it?
I e-mailed Valerie Salmon and asked her if she would consider doing an 8.5x11 sketch sometime.
She is so sweet and talented - she did one for me!
She e-mailed it to me and challenged me to use it so she could put it on her blog!
I had the best time making this layout!
When it was finished, I said to myself...
"I love scrapbooking."
I think this might be my favorite layout I've made.
There's not much else that gives me a HIGH like the thrill of the completed page.
The best part about this was that I used some of my old stash like Aunt Gerti's Garden and ghost letters.
Here's the actual sketch - isn't it delightful?
I would never have thought of cutting my pics down or using circles like this.
The sketch took all the guesswork out of the process.
I was able to just enjoy picking out papers and embellishments.
I already have another layout in progress...
maybe I'll finish it tonight during The Bachelor and Dancing With The Stars.
