Sketch Monday!

I don't know about you but when I get stuck on a scrapbook page and don't know what to do next, or sometimes even where to start, I head for inspiration from a sketch. Whether I follow the sketch exactly (not too often) or simply use it as a jumping off point for my page, sketches always my creativity going.

So, today I am going to introduce Sketch Monday. Each week I will try to post a sketch for a card or layout along with a project using the sketch. Most of these sketches will be pretty simple and easy to adapt to your own style and tastes. And, because I don't have any fancy programs to draw the sketches they will mostly be hand-drawn.

Here is your first sketch! It doesn't look to fancy but makes for a quick and easy page.

Here is the page I created to go along with the sketch. The papers are from K&Co. and the journal spot from October Afternoon, alphas are American Crafts Thickers and the lace is from Webster's Pages. And, that's my little Aimee. Cutie, isn't she?


If you like the sketch and create something for it please leave a comment here with a link to your page so that I can see!

Have a wonderful day!
