Layout share


Here's a layout I put together using one of Valerie Salmon's sketches. If you haven't visited her blog, check it out for some great ideas and inspiration.

I don't use sketches too often when I scrapbook, but as I've been trying to get back into the creative process lately, using a sketch makes things a little easier.

I always end up with really bad concert photos (like the one at the left), but in this case our neighbor used his zoom and gave me a couple of close-ups of the choir. I really appreciated that!

Supplies: cardstock: Bazzill; patterned paper: Sweetwater (really old!), Creative Imaginations; sticker letters: Arctic Frog; flowers: Prima, Bazzill; other: buttons

Cute Lo. I dont normally use sketches either, but I think I caught the "bug" for it thanks to PageMaps. Hope they're helping you to capture your creativity process. :)

Daughter will be happy for ANY choir pics...unfortunately, I have NONE...just newspaper articles:( And it was one of my most favorite activities in school too...and have you ever noticed how literally ever other school sponsored activity (sports, band, yadayada) has formal group and/or individual pics, but choir NEVER does?!?! What's up with that?
