It is SKETCH time!

I have mentioned this before but I will say it again, sketches just inspire me. This first layout wasn't created with a sketch but the next too were.
What inspired this layout was this adorable photo and a layout that Ali Edwards posted at Two Peas in a Bucket. She used one large photo and I so love that look so I figured it would work good with this cutie. Notice the two tiny photos. I love to use one large photo and then accent with a couple smaller ones to tell more of the story.
Do you know what the totally yummy cardstock on this layout is? NEW Core'dinations, from the new Cosmo Cricket collection. I just sanded it and it is amazing. The layout was created with the Unscripted Sketch #39 for this week. I am so far behind on having a complete album for our youngest grandson so I have been trying to pull out some of those photos and getting them scrapped.
For this layout I used the Ella Friday sketch #2. If I do all six, I be six layouts ahead of where I was before! That works!
