It's A Sketch Kind of Day

Got a Stash? If you are a scrapper you know exactly what I am referring to!! I wanted to use some papers that have been in my stash for a little while now so I reached out across the web for some inspiration. Guess what? I found some sketches!!! I LOVE to use sketches so here is the result:

Sketch #5 from 2 Sketches 4 You and a yummy print from Daisy Bucket Designs plus I managed to use some new stamps I picked up that are also by Daisy Bucket Designs

This second one uses one of my favorite patterned papers from Webster's Pages and a sketch from Caardvarks
And last for right now, a layout using a sketch from Sketch This and more of my Daisy Bucket Designs stash. I had to tweek this one a little since the orientation of my photos was different then the sketch but to me that is what a sketch is all about - a launching pad for you to make it your own. (ps. this is my newest grandson!)
Thanks for visiting, Linda (aka lbpost)
