I love creating my layouts based on sketches. I've had a sketch book ever since I started scrapbooking and have accumulated quite a few of them now.

I have to jot down my ideas and a rough sketch of my layout before I can even start creating a page. So I decided that I would start sharing some of my layouts in sketch form with you. I only have two posted right now but I'll have more soon. So please check back often.

I've created a new tab at the top of my blog (called Sketches) so please feel free to use these for inspiration. (I've worked hard on these layouts & sketches so please make sure to mention where you got the inspiration & ideas from. So please don't copy and claim as your own. )

Here's sketch #1 to get you started.

Here's my layout that I created from my sketch.
Supplies used: Imaginisce (patterned papers, die-cut, glam rocks), My LIttle Shoebox (alpha stickers), Core'dinations cardstock, Ek Success (border punch)

If you do happen to use my sketches I would love for you to link back to these posts (as I will post every time I have a new sketch.) Or you can always email you work because I would love to see it!!

Thanks for stopping by!
