Welcome back! That groundhog shadow must have been very long as winter is mean and fierce in much of the US this week. We hope you are all keeping warm and finding time to scrapbook with all the kids underfoot for snow days. ;)
To help keep your juices flowing, we found an old Emilie Ahern layout, Orange Addict, in our July 2009 gallery. With room for as many as seven photos it seemed like the perfect layout from which to sketch.
We know how eye catching that orange is, so we are going to remove it for a minute so you can see the bones of the layout. It looks likes we have three square'ish photos (two large, one small), a tall rectangle, a small one, and maybe two long slim tall rectangles.
Using this sketch, Marnie put together a layout that tried to leave winter behind. But one which left all the elements of the sketch in place.
For a second option, she did a mirror image to accommodate a photo looking the other way! Then to allow some journaling space, she shrunk it all down, just a bit, and relocated the title to the other side. And voilà!
Hope these three layouts and the sketch help you get inspired to get a page or two done! Happy scrapping!
