A New Sketch!

Are you struggling getting that layout together? Not sure how to begin?

Then you need to head over to My Scraps and More Sketches! where a new sketch has been posted. Sketches make a great beginning point! You can create a layout following the design or you can tweak it by changing the orientation, adding additional photos, changing the embellishments, etc. Please take a look at the wonderful way the Design Team used the sketch!

Here is the sketch b y Audrey Yeager

And here is my layout. I am celebrating our new family. Each of my children (Jennifer - dress, Rob - Tall guy) has gotten married in the past year! We are now a family of 6 and we are so glad to have Shawn and Beth as part of the family!!

As you can see I rotated the design 90 degrees. I loved using one larger photo which was from the rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding. This is my new family - each of my children have spouses!
Instead of using embellishments, I used texture paste and a stencil.

I hope you will share your work with us at  My Scraps and More Sketches! Did I mention there is a chance to win a prize:) Better get busy!!

Adding this to Anything But A Card Celebration challenge!

Thank you for visiting today!

And did you know

Michigan is the only place in the world with a floating post office.  The J.W. Westcott II is the only boat in the world that delivers mail to ships while they are still underway. They have been operating for 125 years.

That is your fun fact for today!


  1. Gorgeous page. Loving the hearts on your background page and the sequins just finish it off perfectly. BL
