This sketch has room for three photos, but as I told my sister-in-law last week when we were scrapbooking together, think of a sketch as a starting point. Whatever inspires you to create, go for it! Rotate the sketch, flip it - it's YOUR layout!
I've always loved Waleska's style and love that this sketch had me thinking a bit outside of my box.

Jen says, "I pretty followed the sketch in its entirety as I love 8 1/2 X 11" layouts and the sketch was right up my alley. I did had a half circle sub title at the bottom of my page and added my title letters to the hanging banners. But I really enjoyed this sketch and will definitely use it again as inspiration for an entirely new layout next time."

Allison notes, "I loved the overall feel of this sketch and wanted to keep it pretty similar. I started off with my photos (Fujifilm Instax prints) and went from there. I decided to move the pennants to the other side of the layout to balance out the other embellishments I had added."
Marcy comments, "Right away I was inspired by the banner in the sketch. My intention was to place it exactly as it was in the sketch... but as is often the case... this changed as my layout when along."
