Sunday Sketch

I've been waiting all month to share this sketch with you based on Stephanie Howell's "How" layout. It's super easy with 2 4x6 photos stacked along with lots of patterned paper and she even gives you a way to use doilies or other circular embellishments, like flowers.

Notice how she layers the patterned paper behind the photos. Lots of layers and even a strip with a decorative edge using a border punch. The title sits on top of the photos and the journaling is in a thin strip that runs vertically, visually connecting the photos.

Great layout and I can't wait to see your take on it!

Simply link your layout here by Saturday. Winners will be drawn Sunday for 2 $5 gift cards. It's that easy!

Great sketch. I loved it so much I varied from it very little. I had wanted to make a layout about me & my husband for a while and this sketch made it so easy : )

This was hard for me, the mother of two boys. I had to simplify it for my page about Legos. http://www.studiocalico.com/forums/galleries/show/21043
I had loads of fun with this.
