Thanks for Hoppin by!! :)

Hello Hoppers!! Welcome to my humble little blog, if you didn't come here from Kathy's blog, please return to Amanda's blog so that you can hop along in order.

If you follow along with me, you know I love sketches! I find they take some of the harder aspects, photo placement is a BIG one for me, out of the design process, and let you focus more on telling your story and getting exactly the look you want.

Amanda gave us this fun sketch to work with:

I played around with it some, but I still think that you can very much see the sketch in my layout.



I really wanted to use the pictures that a friend had taken of my youngest and myself, so I switched up the orientation a bit, and made it work for what I needed. That's what I love about sketches, and this one has so many possibilities, I know I will use it again!

Thanks again for hopping my way this weekend, I have a giveaway! :) Sorry no picture, but its a good one, trust me!! :) So if you would like to be entered please become a follower and leave me a comment letting me know you did...if you are already a follower, leave me a comment letting me know that too!! :) I will be out of town all weekend, so my giveaway will be open until Monday morning!! :)

Please go to Laura's blog to continue!!

If you would like to be entered for the prize for the entire hop, then make a layout of your own based on the sketch, and once you have finished, return to Amanda's blog and add your link!

Thanks again for hopping by! Have a blessed weekend!!

Great LO! Sometimes you just have to switch a sketch up a bit to make it your own, no matter how great it is! I love the title down the side and the journaling around the border.
Thanks for sharing! :)

I love how you can take a sketch and made it your own. And cutting the title in the same paper as the matt ties it all together. I love it!
