I've been so busy with grading lately that sketches have been my salvation.
Right now I'm working on two 2-page layouts I got inspiration for from the new Ella book Double Page Design. I also finished up these two pages (click on the pages to see them bigger):
I used the sketch from Studio Calico for this one. Can I tell you how much of a salvation it has been for me to learn how to put together a photo collage on PSE? So much quicker and easier than cropping 4x6's. I also used the last kit, Napa Valley, for the LO.
I also used Napa Valley on this next layout:
I used a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays for this one. It had banners on it and with my boys, I don't get to use those too much (though I should--creative challenge!). I like this rubon from Fancy Pants--sort of banner-ish, but with stars, which are more boyish. I then added stars from the kit and stitched them on, sort of hanging like the rub-on.
And the news regarding sketches...go here. : - )
