Back to school with a sketch

I have used sketches for my layouts for years. I started with Becky Higgins, then switched to blogs that offered sketches weekly. Now I rarely use sketches, but I do still, and I have started making my own. Here's one I made recently:

I can fit a lot of photos on this page, which I love to do, and I still have an organized feel to the foundation of the page. Here's what I made with it:

I realized that I have never scrapped our back-to-school ritual, so I made this page to commemorate it. The photos travel from haircuts to school shopping to open house.

Here are the details:

Memories Captured was a perfect line to use with back-to-school photos. It was colorful and chalkboardy without being too thematic. I liked adding the cork in homage to school corkboards too.

Finally, I made a card with the same sketch. I used the line called What a Wonderful Day for this card, which was bright and happy and thankful:

Thank you for checking out my pages! I'm curious: how much of a role do sketches play with your pages?
