I've enjoyed being on Sketch Support, my second design team. It is such fun to get the sketches in my email, thinking ahead to what I could do with them.

I actually sent this layout to my dad for Christmas. He looks great in the picture, and look! They caught fish! Teeny bullheads, but still.
Just some design notes: I sanded the edges to the photos to make them stand out more, and I added the stitching and stamps for some texture, great for a page about boys. The grid stamp, but the way, is to resemble a fishing net. That's about as themey as I can get.
Photography-wise, I added a Pioneer Woman action to the photos called Boost. It drenched the colors with more intense color without getting to bright, nice for an autumn LO.
This past month I was sent not only sketches, but supplies from Jillibean Soup (yum) and two of these, one for me and one for a lucky reader:
Sketches for Scrapbooking 7, a terrific idea book filled with two-page sketches. Maybe you don't need that many two-page idea jumpers? Use them to spark ideas for one page, like I did with this one:
Or make a two page spread, like with this one:
