Why is it that summer goes by day by day at a steady and relaxing pace until August? And then suddenly the days start moving so very quickly that you can hardly keep up? That's how I am suddenly feeling with school on the horizon and the summer lists not yet finished. So. much. to. do.
And in that lots to do list, always remains my pages. I love my pages and making my pages, so no matter how busy I get, they stay on the list. I am so grateful for the Saturday sketches so that I can put a check in the done column!
This week, I used Aliza's gallery layout.
I liked the wide photo strip and knew it would be great for making layouts. Here is how the sketch turned out.
I made one layout staying very close to the sketch.
I realized after I finished it that there wasn't any journaling. Silly, no? Then I decided it might not need any, so I left it alone!
Jennifer also made a layout that stays pretty true to the sketch.
How awesome is that viewfinder wheel? So fun. And that hopscotch paper is divine.
Kate and Lisa both narrowed the sketch to an 8.5 x 11. Let's look at Kate's first. I am so loving the cloud tied to the string...
I also like how she moved the bottom patterned paper to the very bottom of the layout, and went without the top layers. I think it gives her title and photos the prominence they deserve.
Imagine my surprise when I got Lisa's layout and found it covered with view finder wheels! What a trendy team we have!
Lisa took out one of the photos leaving extra white space for breathing room. Photo comparison layouts like these make me smile!
Amy also made the sketch her own by making a 5x7 collage instead of one big picture in the middle, and by replacing another photo with a patch of hearts.
With the collage, it doesn't even look like the same sketch, no?
I made a second layout, tipping the sketch skdeways, and adding a photo.
I like this one, too, and it feels so different. But so fun!

Thank you for stopping by! We hope you enjoy the sketch and have as much fun with it as we have! Happy Saturday!
